We travelled to Venice by train, well six different trains from leaving home and one stop over in Munich, Germany, so quite a journey. The above photo is coming into Venice, where there had been a wonderful sunset, which I just caught the tail end of. We arrived at the station and then made our way to our hotel by water bus, which was great for taking photos, as you can sit outside at the back. That kept me happy for the next hour, yes an hour on the water bus, because being a bus, it stops every few minutes. The following photos are from our arrival to half way along the Grand Canal before the night really drew in, the other half will hopefully be posted next. I always take far to many photos, but with so many beautiful views, how can you not go photo crazy 🙂
The view as soon as you step out of the Station makes you smile, it is breathtaking, I had forgotten how much so and how beautiful it is. It was good arriving later in the evening, as the crowds had thinned down and the water taxis were fewer and it all becomes a little calmer.
