Venice Day 3 - walking around the city

Today was an annoying day weather wise...... as my Mum would have said wet day no rain..... just an annoying very light drizzle.

We wandered along the front to a small garden and found this chappy.

Now the idea had been to get the boat back to San Marco but the boat was one that didn't stop at San Marco!!! But it stopped  a bit further south at Zattere which was fine as it was somewhere to wander.

I visited Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari last time but as you could now take photos.....

At the back of the church is the Scuola Grande di San Rocco it was decorated by Tintoretto and is a must see.

And off for a wander...

Crossing the Rialto

From the bridge

Into St Mark's

We got the boat to San Giorgio's which was the plan earlier :)

From the tower... the poor light didn't help!

And back to St Mark's!

There are some beautiful buildings and churches there Pete - you capture the place so well in your photos. Like the look of the maze in your penultimate picture :)
