Venice in the Summer

I met Amy and Cheryl in Venice this weekend. We started our visit there, and they are coming to Florence after the weekend. The weather turned out to be beautiful, even though the forecast was for rain. The temperatures were perfect, and we enjoyed strolling the canaled streets, shopping, eating, and drinking.

Our first day there, we took a trip to the top of the campanille in San Marco Square. It was a beautiful clear summer day, and the views spectacular. This was my first trip to Venice in the summer, and contrary to reports from others that the canals were "smelly", I didn’t notice it at all!

The evening prior, we attended a concert of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in a church on San Marco. You just can’t hardly top that! Good friends, good company, fabulous seafood, excellent wine, and live classical music in an ancient church in the City of Angels. Bellisima!
