On Sunday, we left again for Venice at 10:00. We decided that we would make use of our 24 hour Vaporetto pass by trying to find a good seat on a water bus and ride around. Our first boat took us from St. Mark`s Square to the northwestern part of the island, where the Grand Canal begins.
We walked along the Grand Canal, went by the Rialto bridge again, and did some window-browsing. We found a shop with amazingly beautiful costumes for Carnivale, which piqued my interest in returning to Venice for Carnivale.
Then we decided to get on another boat that would bring us by some of the beautiful buildings along the canal such as the Grand Casino and the Ca d'Oro.
We then made our way back to Lido, to spend the rest of the afternoon relaxing at the beach.
We were sad to leave at 6 pm, but knew we had to go.
The ferry ride back to Tronchetto was wonderful. We even got to enjoy the lovely church bells at 7:30.
One of the highlights on the ride home was watching Friends in Italian on the TV in the car.
Even more amazing though, we got to see the beautiful sunset over the Alps which brought our trip home to a beautiful ending.
Welcome to our life!
Hi, I'm Allison! I'm a thirtysomething, freshly baked, stay-at-home mom. I'm originally from Connecticut, now living in Germany, hence the name of the blog. I live in southern Germany with my German husband and our baby boy. Life has turned out to be nothing I ever expected, and am so incredibly happy with it! We certainly do have a lot of laughs! I hope you will enjoy following our new experiences raising a little half American/ half German in a little German town.
