With our stomachs full of Italian spaghetti, it was time to walk off the calories. We had half a day ahead and there were still plenty of time. First stop, was Teatro Fenice just 2 blocks away from St Mark’s as the crow flies. We were not in the mood for any theatrical production but was serenaded when a flotilla of gondolas ferrying mainland China tourists passed by. I wonder did they knew what they were singing?
There are plenty of surprises around every corner in Venice
Just around the corner was Santa Maria del Giglio. I guessed I mentioned earlier that Venice is full of churches and what-not hidden around the narrow alleyways. It wasn’t in my itinerary but we had a stop to enjoy the Venetian architecture.
