Today was a day for checking out Venice.  Unfortunately it was raining but only slightly which was great.

We boarded the water bus which took us on a great trip along the grand canal to Piazza San Marco which is the main square in Venice.  I was surprised by how run down everything looked which I assume was mostly water damage but the architecture was amazing just the same.  After looking around we decided to walk back to our hotel which was a good hour walk.  It gave us a chance to see a lot of Venice though and walk off some of the wonderful food we had been eating.

For dinner we walked back to the restaurant strip we had been to the night before which we found with a lot more ease the second time around!

At the suggestion of the gentleman from the night before we went to a restaurant called La Bitta.  This one didn't even have menus, the lady would just come around and tell you the few dishes that were available that night and you would choose.

I know I should have tried something different but I went for veal liver again.  The polenta was more like a mashed potatoe this time but still very very good.  Ly opted for pork cooked with plums which had a very unique but tasty flavour.  Again it was all run by a husband and wife team but with a few extra helpers.

For desert we had to try their caramel panna cotta which was by far the best either of us had had.  It was so creamy and could just stand up itself.  I can still taste it now...

Anyway our last night in Venice and more amazing food.

Love you all

Daniel
