VENICE



When we arrived by train in Venice we took the Canal Boat to San Marco (below). Our hotel was locate about 100 yards to the left of the direction of the picture below. The tower in the picture on the left below is leaning evidently because Venice is sinking.


The Rialto Bridge over the Grand Canal is one of the most beautiful sites in Venice. It is difficult to tell from the picture but there are several shops on the bridge. There is a popular cafe at the Venice entrance to the bridge which is an excellent place for coffee and breakfast.

The picture directly below is one of Judy and me standing on the Rialto bridge.

The picture was taken when our camera hit the ground as a result of a tumble I took going down some steps. Both are fine.




While in Veince we too a day trip to Murano (right) to take a tour of a glass factory. A tour was about all we could afford.

Our next stop was Florence.
