Italy - Venice
01 Nov 18 After an uneventful flight to Treviso, then bus to Venice, we arrived at the terminus at the Piazzale Roma.
Our accommodation was at the other side of the city so the first thing to do was to buy 7-day tickets for the vaporetto
water bus service and then squeeze onto one for a journey along the Grand Canal to the Rialto stop.
Pete's navigating skills then took us through the maze of narrow streets and alleys
to our destination at the Foresteria Valdese Venezia. Cloudy.
