A wonderful eight days in Venice, staying a few yards from the delightful Campo San Giacomo dell’Orio. As we remembered from our last visit (too long since), if you avoid Piazza San Marco, then even the most famous galleries, churches, etc., are very surprisingly quiet. When we visited the stunning Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavone, very high on the guidebooks’ lists of must-visit sights, there was just one other family there.
Much of our time though was spent, as it should be, simply wandering around quiet corners by foot and vaporetto. The weather was really kind. We ate (mostly) splendidly. We were bowled over again. Next time, we must stay for longer.
