As I said yesterday, I had a great stay there. Venice is a wonderful place to visit and so beautiful! The weather was nice, sunny but not too hot.
We were a group of 66 people, that was a lot but most of the time, we were separated in 2 groups, so that was OK.
After our arrival at San Marco airport, we used a private boat to reach Venice (50 mn from the airport). It was amazing to discover the city from the lagoon 🙂 Our hotel wasn’t in Venice but in a lovely seaside resort at one hour from Venice (30 mn by bus and 30 mn by boat), so everyday we used a boat to go to Venice 🙂
When you arrive at Piazza San Marco, the first thing you see is pigeons. There are everywhere! Can you imagine hundreds of pigeons flying everywhere? Incredible!
If you have the opportunity to visit Venice, don’t hesitate to stroll in the streets, far away from touristic tour, Venice is so beautiful…
Piazza San Marco is a huge crowdy square and the front of the cathedral is often flooded (I saw a few centimeters of water there).
Sorry, we were not allowed to take pictures inside the buildings…
The Doges Palace is amazing, the rooms are so beautiful!!! Too bad I couldn’t take pictures 😦
When it was built, the bridge of sighs had nothing to do with romantism, it connected the prisons to the interrogation rooms in the Doges Palace…
What would be Venice without its Grand Canal and gondolas 🙂
We went to several islands around Venice itself.
Murano, famous for its glass.
Burano, famous for its lace.
This is very hard to resume this trip because in Venice, you discover everything with your eyes! So I think the best is to show you pictures. You’ll find more here. 🙂
