We’ve heard you either love Venice or hate it. We definitely fall into the former category. We spent the day wandering around and getting lost, weaving back and forth across bridges that spanned small canals and large ones. At one point we found we had crossed the Grand Canal without realizing it. We discovered the Rialto Mercado quite by accident and found ourselves away from the hordes of tourists gawking at the basilicas and taking over priced gondola rides. We were suddenly in residential neighborhoods and the streets were blissfully empty.
The morning rain gave way to afternoon sunshine. Venice is a photographer’s dream.
Here are just a few of my shots from today.

Have been following your blog throughout your trip. I love all your descriptions and photos but I think Venice is the best! I saw your pastry photo and was wondering… have you see/eaten any cannoli while there? It may be something you find mostly in Sicily but I would love to know what you think of it. I grew up on the stuff and couldn’t get enough! Will be looking forward to reading about the rest of your trip. Ciao!
You are doing a fabulous job capturing the sights (and food and people)!
