I’ve dreamed of going to Venice since I was a little kid. And finally in late November we did. For two days we just got lost through little streets and just wandered around. We ate artisanal gelato at Suso.
We went to T Fondaco dei Tedeschi, a department store close to the Rialto bridge. It has a roof terrace where you can get a view of the Grand Canal.
We visited Libreria Acqua Alta. A peculiar library where the books are piled up in the walls, a bathtub and a gondola. They are even used as stairs that overlook the canal in the back. I read that this library is home to some cats, unfortunately we didn’t run into any kitties.
We also took a boat to visit the Island of Burano. A fisherman’s Island known for its colorful houses. It was definitely worth the trip. We were thinking of visiting Murano too but the weather got worse, so we decided to just head back to Venice.
We stayed at the NH Palazzo Barocci. We had the junior suit with a view. And what a spectacular view it was. We arrived at night so we couldn’t see much, but the next morning we opened the doors to the balcony to see a gorgeous view of the Grand Canal and the Rialto bridge. The hotel has a great location, as one of the boat stops (Vaporetto) was right outside.
