Today, I spent about 5 hours just exploring part of Giudecca, which lies to the south of Venice. I walked from one end of this island to the other, soaking up the sun and scenery. I walked down as many calle as I could, to get into the hidden parts of Giudecca.
It’s so different, newer, more room, but maybe a little less character than the Venice we know and love. But, I could live there, if I was offered the chance.
I’m going to let WordPress do what it wants with the photos. Hover over them for a description, and click on them, if you want a larger image.
Just a couple of things before the photos. I found 2 very different places for accommodation on the Fondamenta facing Venice. They both have million dollar views, but are worlds apart in cost.
First is the Hostel Venezia, a converted granary. It might cost you about 25 euro/night. The second is a 16th century Palladio convent, the Hotel Bauer. Very luxurious, with an absolutely stunning ambience. This would cost you at least 500 euro/night. The concierge allowed me to walk through the ground floor, into the garden. Closest I’ll get to such luxury, unless I win a lottery.
