Early rise today and on road by 8.00am off to Venice Islands. So foggy and when we arrived at boat still really thick. Was a little scarey boats fog horns sounding but phew arrived safely and walking tour began. We went through the Dogers Palace abd the Basilica on San Marco Church. Amazing buildings and history. The builders back then in time were amazing. Lots of maintenance being done everywhere.
Lucky we could take photos in the Basillica but not the church. Painted roof and paintings are wonderful. The cues to get in the church wss so long lucky we had pre paid tickets. Free time then for our booked trip on the gondola. As a group we had 6 gondolas. 1 had a singer and guitar player. Was great 5 in ours and watching Barry get in and out was funny. So hot and humid well in 30, fog gone relaxed going through canals was great. it was so busy with water taxis also on the canals.
Bused home then John and I went for walk to Spar supermarket. Just like at home. Same wrapping but different wording but just same.
Tired good night.
