about venice in words & pics, with and without my 9-year-old son
I won't be going shopping in March but I will definitely go there for the view.
The view is worth visit, Michelle, but get there in advance of the time you hope to be on the roof deck. That is, as soon as you arrive go to the top floor and get a free ticket that tells you what time you will be allowed out onto the roof deck. You cannot--at least not when I was there--simply walk out onto it. Which is why the above photo was shot through a glass window, not from the roof deck.
Lovely view. Looking forward to your next post discussing the restoration.
It is indeed a lovely view, JoAnn. But is there a "but"? Probably. But it will be a few days till I get to it. I suspect Salvatore Settis would have some problems with the whole thing....
