Ah, the romance of Venice


This is the view from the spot we found, about four hundred yards from the Rialto bridge, with all its hustling and commerce and restaurants and bright lights, where we could sit right at the edge of the Grand Canal and dangle sore feet in the cool water. It's a Gondola mooring and it was here we spent an hour or so on the last night of our honeymoon watching a rather handsome Venetian boy packing away the velvet and chrome of the Gondolas' interiors and wrapping each one carefully in its blue tarpaulin for the night. It really is the most romantic city in the world.
