Day 157… I can’t leave Venice without going on a classic Venetian gondola. It’s a common way for visitors to see the major canal routes from a fascinating perspective. So a group of us do so. Then we get split up, but the Grand Canal is closed for a few hours for a gondola regatta! After I try to see St Mark’s Basilica… but forget it’s Sunday and it closed early. Sad face. After that we split up again and I its just down to roomie Richard and me… so we grab a bit then head back… spag bol #2 down.
