Venice Food

Venice was different in that we stayed in a self-catering apartment. While we had some meals out, many were at the apartment after shopping at the Rialto Markets or the shops along Strada Nuova.

This was quite an extravagance - drinks at the venerable Gran Caffee Lavena on the Piazza San Marco - Aperol Spritz, Grappa, Cafe Doppio and Mineral Water. The chips and macarons were complimentary.
