Lasting memories along the canals of Venice.
Having slept off the many miles of travel from the previous day, we awoke early, refreshed and ready to see this amazing city. We had a full day ahead of us, so it was good Josh found plenty of Nutella at breakfast to give him strength. Every street was a new adventure and around every corner was a picturesque canal, a high-arched bridge or an intimate courtyard. A scenic walk led us to the Galleria dell’Accademia and, from the similarly named bridge, we got our first truly majestic view of the Grand Canal. Once in the Accademia, we absorbed as much of the Bellini, Carpaccio, and Titian paintings as we could. When the substantially cracked walls of this old convent-turned-museum began to hold our attention more than the art, we headed out for fresh air.
