Walk-about in Venice .. part II

Walk-about in Venice .. part II

Having walked with our local guide to Campo Santi Giovanni e Paolo, we didn’t retrace our steps but walked back through different narrow streets and over different bridges making our way back to St Mark’s Square .. of course both hubby and I taking photographs as we walked, of this most fascinating city of Venice

Bridge of Sighs, from the other side,  and Ponte della Paglia – from where we stood elbowed our way earlier to take photos of the famous bridge ..

IMG_6318IMG_6319Finally we reached our meeting point with Antonella ..  at the side of the Basilica di San Marco next to a marble wellhead and marble steps which, I might add, we were not allowed to sit on, no matter how tired our feet were!
