Venice II

9 of 12 in ‘The Adriatic Affair’ series from Jemverse

We wandered Cannaragio
beside the Canale Grande
Over bridges, watching gondalas
heading for Rialto and
when we finally got there
we had pizza and a beer
in the restaurant beneath it
which we went to first last year

Then we headed to San Marco
with the throngs of people there
Marvelled at the Dojo’s palace
took some photographs to share
Paused beneath the Bridge of Sighs
before a water taxi trip
back to Dorsoduro
and our waiting cruising ship
