Venice City Break

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.

Viva Las Vegas

Plus I think it was to earn some brownie points for the FIVE stag weekends he has been away on….I know I’m a good wife 🙂 Even with all the talk about the city both postive and negative its still one of the most favourite and memorable places I have ever been and I wanted to share our trip with everyone.
