Ah, Venice (part 3).

14 Oct

best way to see Venice is simply to wander, either on foot through the narrow streets and bridges, or by water taxi through the canals.

the doors of Venice:

and now, some commercialism.  the prettiest Pellegrino bottle in the world (Missoni!):

after Venice, I went to Vicenza where my hotel was right next to a weird and wonderful store called Cash-n-Carry.  inside, a Costco-like delight of Italian products, including the WORLD’S LARGEST NUTELLA JAR:

hard to tell from the photo, but it was approximately 10 inches tall.

and also, bizarrely erotic meringues:

I purchased some items to take back to the hotel room, and had to pack them in a box.

unpacked:

a bottle of Sardinian wine, grapefruit/cranberry juice, fruit, almonds, Ritter Sport, and a corkscrew.  all the makings of a delightful evening watching Champions League in the hotel.

 

visit part 1 and part 2!
