Venice

Ah Venice.  What can you say about Venice that hasn't been said before?

Except maybe... fuck Google maps.

We got lost.  Badly.  On the way to the hotel.  Only after checking and re-checking our Google Maps directions, scouring the surrounding area in ~30 degree heat, buying a useless tourist map and then finally talking to the helpful informational office did we manage to find the hotel, which contrary to the Oracle was in a completely different area.

Hotel found, we took a well-earnt shower and set out to explore Venice.

The street in which our hotel was located, canal at the far end.

View across the lower grand canal towards the Cathedral.

View across San Marco square.

View towards a small island hosting the tower whose name escapes me.

The Rialto Bridge (also known as the bridge of 1000 asshole tourists).  After some surprisingly cheap eats and gelati (cheaper than Paris) we headed back to the hotel for an early night before catching a ferry upstream to the Piazzale Roma in the morning to catch a shuttle bus to Venezia Treviso Airport and spend the rest of the day waiting for our flight to Bucharest.
