Italy 5 - Venice

... might have been my favorite place. We were there for less than 24 hours, and only hung out in the uppermost part, the Jewish ghetto. Did not even take a gondola ride or get to St. Mark's. But I still loved it! I discovered the Campari spritz, with a green olive in it! Might be the best drink in the world.

We went on a great "pub crawl" with an exuberant host named Alessandro. We walked to three bars, enjoyed wine, appetizers, Prosecco and chatting with other tourists on the crawl. It was a great experience, for such a short time there.

This is the market right outside our hotel room
