My Italy Diary: Venice

Mr. Man (aka, my husband David) and I arrived in Milan yesterday and hopped on a train for Venice. I negelected to get express tickets so the ride took a little longer than it should have, but no matter, we had time for a nap (Mr. Man) and to enjoy the scenary. I love the terra cotta roof tops of Italy. When we came through Desenzano de Garda, there was a beautiful view of Lago di Garda and the Alps in the background.

After several stops at smaller cities, we finally arrived in Venice. We took a moment after exiting the train station to take in the view and absorb the knowledge that we were finally in Italy. We boarded a vaporetta along with many other tourists to take us to Ca’ d’ Oro from which we walked a couple of blocks, and after getting lost, managed to find our hotel,
Locando Leon Bianco. We had to carry our bags up a couple flights of stairs, but the room is quaint with a window in each the bedroom and bath overlooking a side canal.

We checked in and had a quick shower and then set out to explore and find a place for dinner. We ended up at a restaurant recommended to us by the hotel. I don’t remember the name, but it’s not important as the meal was not impressive.
