Two weeks ago we travelled to the South of France to celebrate my mother in laws special birthday. The number will remain anonymous of course…but ask anyone in Villefranche Sur Mer and they will tell you as Olivia did happen to mention to everyone and their dog (literally) what age Granny was on that faithful occasion!
After a very early start on Friday morning and a quick flight of only 2.5 hours we arrived into Marco Polo airport just outside Venice in the sunshine.
We caught the airport bus to Mestre where we where staying for €8 return fare which took about 15 minutes. Mestre is the industrial centre just on the other side of Venice and at a fraction of the cost to stay actually in Venice itself, it was the perfect location.
