We found our luggage and went to pick the boat up. A boat ride to Venice how atmospheric in fog ? Not really! Although the first view of the Rialto bridge was nice, somehow though I'd have preferred a nice blue sky!
We found the hotel, it was easier once you realise that what looks like an alley is actually a street..... luggage was dumped and a camera extracted and off ....
The view from the hotel
we grabbed a bowl of pasta on the square and watched the world go round and drunk a glass of prosecco.....

delivery Venetian style! No cars here folks!
The first gondola!
The streets are narrow!
And a first view of St Mark's square.....
One of St Mark's domes.....
The bridge of Sighs - I went through it later on the trip.
Just for Corinna :)
And there are fish in the canals.

The hotel at night!
I ended the day with a nice meal at a local tratoria. Probably the best Pinot Grigio I've tasted (not a big fan of PG! but this had some body).
But I ended it wanting some decent light!!
