Venice

It has been a very long and tiring day, it has also been a gloriously sunny and very enjoyable day. The journey to and from Venice was long (3 hours in each direction), but the time in Venice itself more than compensated for that.

We saw St Mark's Square, we took a look inside St Mark's Basilica, looked at the Doge's palace and went up the famous bell tower. We also went for a gondola ride and walked over to the Rialto Bridge, all to the accompaniment of clear blue skies and sun. Also enjoyed a divine omelette and a beautiful ice cream...

Pictures follow:

Has Venice changed much since 1987?
