There is so much to see and do in Venice, and this becomes a little bit tricky when you are there anywhere near a full moon in October it seems!
Yes, we were there for some interesting water levels. No where near as high as it can go, not even Aqua Alta (high water), but still enough that we had to look for a couple of alternate routes! Would you like to know more?
I had worked out an itinerary for our trip and we stuck to it quite well. I marked out a whole day for going to the Gallery dell’Accademia, and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
The Gallery del’Accademia was a wonderful gallery of full of pre-19th-century religious paintings spanning centuries. By contrast, the Peggy Guggenheim collection is specifically modern art. Would you like to know more?
We had explored off-island on our own, now it was time to do a little exploring on the island, but this time with a little more expertise and local knowledge at hand!
I booked us in for an all day tour, which was really two separate two hour tours with a three hour gap in the middle where you could do your own exploring and have lunch. Would you like to know more?
For those of you that guessed “Italy”, well done! Gold star for you! *applauds*
We decided that it was high time we went and discovered something a little more South of us before Winter really set in. We narrowed it down to the three cities that we wanted to see most, and then proceeded to visit them from North to South and East to West. We began in Venice!
