One of my major goals on this trip (as if you didn't already know) was to do the walks in "Brunetti's Venice" book by Dr. Toni Sepeda.
The first walk began with the location of the first book, "Death at La Fenice". I didn't get to the famed opera house until 1 pm because I was looking for a power cord for my laptop - I have since found the power cord (so happy about that).
So, I did the tour of La Fenice with audioguide. It was quite a beautiful place, which is remarkable since it burned down three different times - in 1774, 1836, and 1996.
I only completed the first two of the Brunetti Walks today because I kept getting lost and backtracking, but here are some of the sights I did find from the book. I will add the specific book comments later.
La Fenice Opera House
Hotel Fenice behind the opera house
Fantin Fiori, the most expensive florist in the city, where Signorina Elettra ordered her weekly flowers
On the other hand, Biancat (Brunetti's favorite florist) was nowhere to be found. I had the street address from Donna Leon's website, and all I found at that address was this dress shop. No other florist in the area.
The famous view from the Rialto Bridge
Cantina Do Mori
Ugliest bank in Venice, according to Brunetti
Brunetti's street, Calle Tiepolo
The end of Brunetti's street where the police launch picks him up.
