Decided to take on Venice for two reasons, like the Matterhorn it was on the itinerary in 1961 but missed out. Probably a lot less crowded then. And the fast train from Milano to Venezia takes only 2 hours thirty. One of the 10 things to do and see on Venice is to get lost. That one was covered today. As well as seeing Ponte di Realto - completed in the 16th century with shops all the way across. As well as The Galleria Academia and the Dukes palace along with weaponry of the 14-1600's and the jail cells for the bad guys. So in two days 8 out of 10 is not half bad.
A cool beer down on the waterfront with Ducal Plalace to the left after a busy day of sightseeing. Heaps of photos but not taken with iPhone. These will appear along with some movies a few days after I get home.
