Venice experience

For a long time I wanted to visit Venice but Hubby was not interested, he only wants to go to the homeland! So when my youngest daughter asked me to go with her to Venice I jumped at the chance, even though we had just arrived from two months stay in the old homeland. We did go to Itally  a couple of times with our friends Fiona and Gino and that was a miracle...

So I did not have to think twice, and I said yes without any excitation.
It was a wonderful experience for three days we walked first to San Marco taking the route through ally ways bridges over the canals and loads of historic buildings.

San Marco square was amazing and the church of which there is many the walls and ceilings was covered in beautiful pictures all done in tinny mosaic so we go round mesmerized by the beauty of it all, I could not help it I had to take some photos on the sly! The works of art hanging on the walls so beautiful...Mia says that she getting hungry so we walk along the square looking for a cafe when we spot one with a small orchestra, so it had to be that one...

We get given a menu and we look at each other with a chocked look! Then we shrug our shoulders and say oh well we are in Venice at San Marco lets just enjoy the moment, we ordered a ham and cheese toasted sandwich and a glass of wine and sat there enjoying lunch and the atmosphere and sixty euros lighter.... Then we take the vaporeto back to our hotel....

Everybody kept asking us if we were going to go on the gondola but we opted to go see Othello play instead at Hotel sagredo very interesting first time for me never had been to a Shakespeare play thoroughly enjoyed it... On the second day we take a trip on the water bus through the grand canal to Murano the island of Venitian glass another day well spent so much to see, on the last day again we walk all over the place Mia was very good at map reading even though we walked through very narrow allay's we never once got lost.....
