Venice In A Day April 19, 2012
I hope I never forget the first sight, out of the train window, realizing we are crossing the bridge, soon to approach Venice! Before I knew it, we were off the water taxi and walking the streets!
While we hardly scratched the surface, I found “heaven on earth”! This is a place you could spend weeks, months or even years, if you’re a student of art, history, photography or all things beautiful!
I took the picture after picture of canals. One was prettier than the next.
We wrapped up the day to remember, at Lavena, a small restaurant and coffee bar, with a quartet playing gorgeous music! The place has been in business since 1750! And you can’t miss the Venetian glass chandelier hanging in the center of the room.
I felt like I could have been playing a role in a movie, except no one asked for my autograph! One day I hope I’ll have a chance to come back to this special place! But I’ll be forever grateful to have seen it at least this once!
Happy trails, until next time!
