Vacation 2015 - Day 7: Venice! Part 3; San Marco and the Walk Back.

Mostly pictures again today. Obviously, I could not take any photos within the San Marco cathedral.

I remember fewer people, and more pigeons, from my last visit here...

The Doge palace.

The palace from the quay side

When we got back to the car, we were all pretty exhausted, so we drove back to the camping and dropped into the pool!

Vacation 2015 - Day 7: Venice! Part 2; The Inner City.

After safely returning to the dry ground, we started following the signs pointing towards the Ponte di Rialto, and San Marco.

Lots of stuff to be had at this  vendor stall. The girls bought fans, to better withstand the heat.

Ponte degli Scalzi

A fine place for an ambush...?

I could live here.

The narrow streets with no modern vehicle in sight
really emphasizes the medieval/renaissance atmosphere.

Giacomo is watching you!

The high tide problems of the city can be seen here.

One of the many mask stores.

The fishmongers' market

Another mask store.

Long walk, but now we are nearly there...
