Our last boat trip in Venice. Bags and bus went very early this morning but we caught up with it. After boarding we took the long bridge back to the mainland. What an amazing two days. We are continuing our journey in Italy heading south west to the historical Assisi. Didn't know what to expect as it is a relatively small place, not a big city, and yet very significant religiously and historically. The first glimpse is amazing. Perched ...
... the vaporetto (water buses). We considered flying instead but this went via Frankfurt or Dusseldorf and didn't save much time and was lots more expensive. Just a long and tiring travel day but we successfully arrived in Venice and walled out the door of the railway station. Michael said "wow, there is the Grand canal" right there in front of us.

However pizza here is basically flatbread, mildly seasoned. There is no sauce, cheese or toppings on it. After the appetizers came large single bowls of squid, small snail like shells (where you needed a toothpick to get the "meat" out), and ...
... It had a really cool town square and church at the top of the hill. There was a small fountain further down the main street that you are supposed to walk around 3 times for good luck. Of course we did! Enrico bought a lottery ticket right after that (and apparently the fountain thing did not work). We finished the day by having dinner at the country home to celebrate their family friend Adele turning ...
