Alla Vedova are renowned for their meatballs, and now I can see why. Served with polenta and tomato sauce; simple and delicious.
Couldn’t say no to the tiramisu! Light but decadent at the same time.
Loving the Venetian style, the buildings and decor are incredible. It’s like going back in time and being in a film set.
One day, four islands.
1&2. Isola di San Michele. The cemetery island. I was astounded by the beauty of this place. As sombre as death is, there was a feeling of uplift. Maybe it was just the sun. There were maybe three people walking around but there were about a dozen workers tending to the grounds. Good job, team!
3&4. Murano. Island of Glass. Every other store front was a glass art shop. I'm not quite sure why I didn't take any photos of it haha. The drink there is an aperol spritz, the drink of Venice.
5. Burano. An island known for its colourful houses firstly but it's also known for lace!
6. Torcello. The first Venice island to be inhabited. This is a fifth century chair used by the governor to make governing decisions.
7. Torcello. Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta. About 20 workers were in the midst of restoring the mosaic that depicts The Last Judgement so I couldn't see it but it was pretty great watching them work.
8. Torcello. This is what The Last Judgement actually looks like.
9. On the way back to the main island. Typical tourist.
10. Bar Puppa fed me incredible spaghetti and shrimp. .
Okay. Sleep time.
