One Last Day Trip to Venice

And then there were four.

Damon, Beth, Rich and I had a gorgeous day in Venice the day before our respective departures. I went prepared for cold and rain so of course there was not a cloud in the sky.

Below: Venice's Grand Canal makes a great photo background, no?

We stood in a fast moving line to take the elevator ride up the Bell Tower in San Marcos Square. The view of the city was quite breathtaking and because it was such a clear day we were able to see a lot.

Below: For some reason ethnic restaurants are not common sites in these parts - after a steady diet of pasta it was great to get some decent Chinese food for lunch.

Then it was time once again to say our goodbyes to Jesolo, Italy and all the great people who made us feel so welcome there. Arrividerci and hope to see you next year.... ciao!
