go camping. Don't stay in a hotel, thats boring. I stayed just outside of Venice and got a boat into the town. We had Barbecue's most nights -great.Here are some pictures of one of many Barbecue's we had while in Venice. We found a local Supermarket ( Campsite Supermarket wasn't that big) and bought some lovley food for our Barbecue and it was cheap.
The Rialto Bridge
Spanning the narrowest section of the Grand Canal, the Rialto bridge is located in the most commercial area of the city. So commercial in fact, that they built this bridge with 2 rows of shops. Until the 19th century, this was the only bridge crossing the Grand Canal.
Besides the shops lining the bridge, you'll find more tourist shops and an open air market along the Ruga degli Orefici on the San Polo side.
And just a little further are 2 restaurants that maintain reasonable prices, the Cantina Do Spade (see my 'restaurant tips') and Vini da Pinto on the Campiello Beccarie.
Venice - views from waterbus #42
This is something that we did not see much of in Venice, gardens, in fact this was the ONLY one that we did see, and you can see it only from the water as on the land side it is enclosed on three sides.
Regatta Storica, 04.09.2005.
We came to Ponte Accademia, round noon, in order to take the best possible position for shoting. After spending two or three hours under the heat, I was boring and little bit tired. Didn't want to move from my position, so I set down and this is what my camer saw.
SHOES -- Wear comfortable shoes with good support. Unless you are used to walking a lot, you're going to walk more than you ever thought possible. This isn't a bad thing ... it is just the way it is.
