My friend Rochelle and I took a trip to Venice and Lake Garda.   We flew to Venice and took the bus into the city and walked to our hotel Palazzo Cendon which is a lovely small hotel but ideally located.  We did not plan to visit all the sights and museums but to have a wonder around and enjoy the city.   We had one morning of rain but apart from the that weather was fab.  

I have attach a link to the remainder of my photographs on flickr


  1. I loved Venice when I visited, glad you and Rochelle enjoyed yourselves.

    1. I loved it too. It is a very long time since I visit the city in fact it was a school trip. I could quite happily go back and potter around.
