Woke after a wonderful sleep to a drizzly day but by the time of our rowing lesson, the sun was starting to peek through…and by the tine we finished, it was a beautiful sunny day. After our lesson, we had a wonderful lunch of seafood and then walked to San Marco to visit the basilica …it is Sunday after all. Now back at our B&B enjoying a rest before heading back out. Going to get full value from our vaporetto passes and ride around a bit and find some gelato since we didn’t have room after lunch as the chef comped us a Sgroppino al Limone, my new favorite Italian dessert, lemon sorbet, vodka, and prosecco whisked into a delicious milkshake like drink …yummy
Waiting for Jane our rowing professor.
We ordered the “taste of Venice” appetizer…who knew it was gonna have half the sea? It included scallops, baby shrimps on polenta, potato chips with shrimp, shrimp, tomato and arugula salad and the winner, really really tasty calamari.
Several folks have asked where we ate. It was called Trattoria 40 Ladro in Cannaregio. It is on Fondamenta de la Sensa, which is one canal closer to the grand canal than the one in front of the Madonna dell’Orto church.
Tomorrow, off to Florence!
