A friend who was visiting Venice had a room in a hotel on the Grand Canal, not far from Ca’ d’Oro. We went up onto the altana of the hotel, and had such a different view of that part of Venice.
Venice aficionados will have fun identifying some of the landmarks they can see.
That campanile has been under restoration for a long time
There are wisps of smoke coming out of a couple of those chimneys
Looking across at another altana. It must have posed an interesting building challenge
It looks like Santa could get down this chimney
Not many customers on the traghetto this cold morning
The vaporetto looks kinda tiny from on high
