Trip Report Capodanno a Venezia - another trip report

Jump to last reply

Good morning everyone

2013 was quite a good travel year for me. Italy three times, London for a long cultural weekend, NYC and the Hudson Valley for a week, and a number of trips to the beach in addition to visiting family. I am blessed and so grateful for these opportunities.

I will pick at this trip report in the coming weeks although I must finish both my Rome and Amalfi Coast reports (and haven't even started on London or NYC).

To summarize, I spent two nights in Florence and eight nights in Venice. The Venice portion was with amici old and new - many new, as a matter of fact. The weather was fantastic for this time of year for the most part (mid 50s and sunny, and almost 60 in Florence) other than a few days with some rain in Venice.

Here are three photos to start.

New Year's Eve in Venice:

The Salute in B&W. I think this photo looks very 50s, especially given the guy with the jaunty hat and fur collar:

More to come... Auguri and Buon Anno!
