Venice; ancient city on water, hundreds of short cobble stone streets, expensive, smelly,
loud locals, but beautiful!
When we arrived at Venice we carried our suitcases and hand luggage to our hotel which was about 500m away from the train station. But the iPad directed us in the wrong way and after carrying our suitcases and bags for 30 minutes, steps up and steps down, we realize that it is not a city for the unfit, nor for people with disabilities.
We walked the streets, from the northern suburbs all the way south via the Rialto bridge to Saint Marc’s square. The time we spend in Venice was not enough and we should have booked online to visit the Dodge’s palace, for the line to buy tickets was never ending.
The Italian food were delicious! We had lunch, before we board the cruise ship in a quaint little Italian restaurant.
Overall this far, the coffee that we had is not up to the standard that we are use to in Australia. We tried them all, even the espresso.
