Easter

Gondola traffic jam


Venice was a must see for the Norwegians so we headed for the sinking city on Easter Sunday. I figured the place would be deserted what with it being not only a Sunday but Easter too.

WRONG!

The place was packed to the gills. We knew we were in for it when we drove across the bridge and felt lucky to find parking in one of the large garages. I guess everyone wanted to go to Easter service in a medieval Basilica or one of the many beautiful churches on Venice. Almost all the shops were open too.

Not us, we just wanted to sightsee and eat some gelato on this cold and rainy day.


and so we did.
