Venice, what a difference a day makes

Yesterday we had the perfect day with lots of sunshine and blue sky. Here, take a look: Campanile and Palazzo Ducale

And then this morning, look at the view we had from our window:

So this is Venice when it is foggy! Just loved it. I was looking forward starting our day before all the day-tourists arrived. But first, breakfast! And this you shouldn’t miss if you stay at Bloom. Best breakfast I had in Italy so far. Not one dry biscotti to be found here.

Instead fresh fruits, prosciutto and cornetto!

And then we were on our way to San Marco. The plan was to see the Basilica and also go up on the Campanile. We did just this and made our way around the palazzo as well to see the Bridge of Sighs.

Now we were tired and deserved a coffee at the Danieli, one of the finest hotels in Venice.

After finishing our cultural ‘obligation’, we started with the other important part if our trip, shopping!

Two pairs of boots and a purse later, I was exhausted and my friend hadn’t even started. We finally made it back to the hotel at 6:30, rejuvenated with a glass of Prosecco (grazie mille, Bloom) and left for dinner a bit later.

And I really don’t want to dish any place but the Taverne San Mauricio was the worst place ever!!! Stay clear off it, as should we have. We should have rather gone back to the place we went the night before, Caffe Centrale.

Below a few impressions from our lovely day. Enjoy, Pollybert
