VENICE- DAY THREE
Venice Day Three
The third day was our last day in Venice as we flew to Geneva at night. We had to leave our room by 11am and that meant we would struggle with our suitcases for the whole day. Fortunately the hotel was very friendly and stored our suitcases until we left. Once again, check it out! http://www.relaisanmarcovenice.com/relais-san-marco-2/gallery.php .
On our last day I made Robbie walk around Doges Palace. It cost 8 Euros each to enter. This is situated in St Marks Square. The Palace includes a prison which is very interesting but if you don’t like small spaces – Don’t even bother going to that part. The rest of the Palace is beautiful and has amazing rooms. There is also information boards about each room and tells the story of the fire that happened ruining many rooms. There is also a part of the Palace where all the battle gear and weapons are displayed – incredible to see what they actually used. We had a couple of hours to kill before we had to catch the boat so we ended up taking a step back from everything and sitting on the water front, watching gondolas go by and appreciating where we were. That was my favorite moment of the entire holiday.
Breakfast– We once again were delivered our last breakfast in bed. Not going to lie, I missed it the rest of the holiday.
Lunch– For lunch we decided to have a romantic meal along the water front in view of Rialto Bridge. It wasn’t even expensive for a meal. 15 Euros each for a main and a drink sat in prime seats seemed extremely reasonable to me.
Tea– Tea wasn’t the most delicious meal I’ve eaten. A cheese Panini on the Aeroplane. We were both starving by the time we arrived at Geneva. Oh how I dreamed of a pulled apart by hand pork sandwich from Hard rock café that night.
To leave Venice we used the Alilaguna BLUE boat again to take us back to the airport. Once again I would recommend this company as it take you straight to the airport unlike all other boats. When departing I would suggest arriving not 2 hours early, but 3. We arrived 2 hours early and we wouldn’t have made it in time if we didn’t pay for a fast pass at the airport. The layout is terrible as all flights are put into one queue making it one long queue from one end of the airport to the other- and that isn’t even an exaggeration!
Venice has to be one of the most breathtakingly beautiful places I have ever been. It’s also a fantastic place for photos and will instantly make all your Instagram followers jealous!
