Venice - Days three and four.

Day three was probably my favorite day of the whole trip. The sun decided to show it's little face, and Venice looks even more magical in the sunlight.

A little tired from the night before, we started the day off with some tasty gelato (if you can't have gelato for breakfast whilst on holiday, when can you?!), and took a sunny stroll down to the famous St Marcs Square in the centre of Venice.
We spotted an outdoor restaurant with a band playing outside, and decided to sit in the sun with the ultimate home comfort, English breakfast tea, accompanied by an array of biscuits.

It was such a warm sunny spot, we stayed put all afternoon, chatting and people watching, and drinking sparkling wine. We soaked up every possible moment in the sun, and didn't shift from our table until it disappeared. Such a perfect way to spend the afternoon!

Proving just how easy it is to get lost in Venice, on the way back to our hotel, we ended up completely and utterly lost, on the other side of the Island in a Jewish Ghetto. Even with the aid of Google maps it felt like an impossible task to find our way back!

On Day four, we trotted into town for some salad wraps (on a side note, if you're looking for healthy food in Venice, it's pretty much impossible, it’s all pasta and pizza). We headed to the Bell Tower, to take photographs of the city from above. Somehow we managed to get lost again, and somehow, it turned into a little bar crawl again, oopsy!
Collectively over the four days, we must have been lost for just over 6 hours... wow.
We had such an amazing time in Venice, and will definitely be heading back for a day trip in the summer. It’s such a stunning City, I’d definitely recommend it for a city break.
