My final sail (on this trip) down the Grand Canal

Alas, all good things must come to an end, and so my recent visit to Venice did as well.

I hopped on board the vaporetto #1 from Piazza San Marco, headed to the other end of the Grand Canal, to the stazione. There I’d find my train bound for Florence on a late Friday afternoon. I’d be home, safe and snug in my apartment, by 6 pm. Love that about Italy. It’s so compact! Filled with treasures at every turn.

Here were the sights (and some sounds) along the way.

Below, even the poles outside this august building are highly decorated with golden relief sculptures of the lion, symbol of the city.

Fare thee well, fair Venezia! Alla prossima!
