Venice

When we reached the Milan Malpensa Airport in the morning, we were tranfered to Venice straight away. After our lunch at the local restaurant, we went to the pier.


There, we waited for our private boat at 2pm.

It took about half an hour to reach the other side.
We could view the St Mark's Square from the boat.
Most of us wanted to experience the gondola which cost us 30 euro each.



It's just like punting in some other countries.
It was a good experience.

Next, we went to the St Mark's Square.
An interesting place full of people..
and pigeons too..

    2. really?? it is sinking? or the sea level goes up?

    3. It's true. The city is not sinking but because of global warming, the water level has risen and in some parts, people had to abandon the ground floor and move upstairs.

      Aw, gondola ride, what an experience..

  12. Venice is so romantic! I would love to ride the Gondola with my wife someday to experience the charms and sights of the buildings lined along the canal's banks. So many movies have been filmed there.
