Monday, May 28 - Bolzano to Venice
We left Bolzano and headed east into the Dolomites, tremendous mountains in the Italian Alps. I have a lot of photos - they were hard to shoot unless we stopped, which we did several times. I bought a cute little clock when we were at the mountain pass. We got to Venice late because it took so long to drive out of the mountains. We parked on Isola Nuova, an island devoted to visitors, and took a vaporetto (ferry) in with our luggage. We're staying at the tip of the Grand Canal in the Accademia section of town, where the museums are. Had dinner near Saint Mark Basin, what the Grand Canal spills into. I finally had a pizza (tomato, artichoke, ham, olives) that I shared with mom. Very good.
Here is a video, halfway up.
And then at the mountain pass:
I was so happy my brother decided to take this side trip to Bolzano and then through the Dolomites. Actually, he was the one (or so I believe) who decided to take a few more days and go to Venice. Thanks you, BB!
