“But maybe every life looked wonderful if all you saw was the photo albums.” ~ Liane Moriarty, What Alice Forgot
As I had mentioned, I finally had the chance to upload my photos from Venice - over a thousand! I will spare everyone from that, however, and will only post a select few.
Our holiday was nothing short of fabulous. It was a quick holiday - only five nights and six days, but we managed to pack in a lot during that short time.
We arrived at the airport in the early afternoon and took a shuttle bus into Venice. Upon arriving in Venice, we had to take a water taxi (vaporetto) to our stop, Rialto Mercato. We stayed at a very charming AirBnb apartment near the famous Rialto Bridge.
Throughout our stay in Venice, we managed to take a few guided tours that included St. Mark's Basilica, the islands of Murano, Burano, and Torcello, and a simple guided tour around the heart of Venice. G even met a famous Venetian painter and bought a few of his paintings.
We also took a day trip to Milan and to Lake Como. My only regret is that we didn't have enough time to see more sights.
