Mediterranean and Adriatic Cruise October 2012 - Venice

Our next stop after Malta was Venice. The last time we were there it rained and we were hoping for better weather this time.

The following photos are early morning sailing down the Grand Canal.
All good so far, dull but dry. We had some breakfast before going ashore for the day. The next photos are all various views around the city of Venice.

The canals are a beautiful setting for a wedding.
One of the many shops that sell the beautiful porcelain masks.
St Mark's Square.
The astronomical clock.
The Rialto Bridge, and yes, it was raining!
A last look as we took the water taxi back to where our ship was docked.
Next port of call will be Split, Croatia.
