Venice in the Rain

On the VERY last day of our Veneto trip, we parked at the Best Western, Hotel Bologna, in Mestre, across the street from the train station, left our bags, and in 10 minutes, we were in Venice. We had really lovely weather during our two weeks in the Veneto, so a cool, rainy, windy day was a touch of autumn, we don't get at home (until January).

On my three previous trips to Venice, I had sunshine, so it was kind of cool to see Venice in the rain. We arrived at 10:00 a.m., armed with Shannon's personally marked map for a 5 hour walk, with stops for wine, and lunch. We especially enjoyed a comforting lunch at Cavatappi. When we finished lunch, the rain had stopped! : ) We did MOST of it, and stayed in Venice until 4:30, but decided to head back to Mestre for a nap, a snack at the hotel and an early bedtime.

The music is Chris Botti's "Venice", and seems kind of appropriate.

Venice rain or shine is magic. I love the music you chose. It suits the mood of the photos. Thanks for shaing.
