Cannaregio apartment in Venice!

After almost 24 hours of travel (if you count from when we left our house in Austin to when we arrived at our apartment), we were exhausted. We took showers and naps to the   sounds of church bells, birds, dog barks, slamming shutters, but most wonderfully, someone was practicing the piano with the windows open. And s/he was good. Still, what we loved was what we didn’t hear: cars, motors, mopeds.

We are in the perfect location. It’s quiet, and we have window views of the San Andrea canal, but we walk two blocks, and we’re in the heart of the city, Strada Nova. Still, just off the main drag, we found one of the bacari for a Venetian spritz (Aperol, like Campari -but sweeter– soda, and a splash of white wine plus lemon slice and olive). Then for dinner we went to a place recommended by our apartment owner, Ca d’ ‘Oro Alla Vedova. We had wine and appetizers, over and over again for only 15 Euros total. We stood at the banco, and the place was so popular that people were standing out in the alleyway.

I remembered another Italian detail I love: the public fountains with the fresh clear drinking water.

We are so happy and grateful to have arrived. I won’t be too verbose, I promise. Keep up with our travels.
