| I stayed at Al Logia Marinella, near the train station: a plain little pension on the outside and beautifully appointed within.
|| I set out along a small canal...
|| a first look at Grand Canal palazzos.
|| Along the Canale della Giudecca
|| it'a a broad walk
|| with flowers on the walls.
| Palladio's beautiful Redentore on the Giudecca
|| Back to the small canals...
|| and across the Grand Canal on a Traghetto
|| a working gondolier
|| and the cut-rate gondola ride
|| gave an interesting view
| lasting maybe five minutes!
|| I walked toward S. Marco and found the back end of...
|| La Fenice, restored after a fire in 1996
|| is ornate as ever
|| in blues and golds
|| Wandering along the little back canals
