Venice in Black & White

Venice in Black & White - Days 2 and 3
(when the skies were largely gloomy and grey)

Trattoria alla Madonna
Calle de la Madonna
San Polo 594 Venice
Recommended by my guidebook which was good for everything else but food
Given 3.5/5 by Trip Advisor, I'd say we'd have gotten more for our buck buying fresh fish from the Rialto Market and cooking it in our kitchenette.
The Rialto Bridge
The Fish Soup at the Trattoria was really good, though!
This is only one of two generous portions
Acqua alta over Piazza San Marco
Acqua Alta over Piazza San Marco with high walkways for those without wellies to keep dry
The walkways being constructed on the first day of my visit
The (?Bell) Tower over Piazza San Marco
Gondola dock facing San Giorgio Maggiore
Under the arches leading into the Doge's Palace
Lido - Venice's beach
A month and ten days ago
Piazza San Marco from a distance
Gelateria Nico
Giandiuotto da Passeggio - Hazelnut chocolate ice cream smothered in whipped cream
Gelateria Nico
Zattere, Dorsoduro 922
4/5 by TripAdvisor. Defo worth a visit.
If you looked carefully, you'd notice the numerous traghettero crossings along the Grand Canal
