Venice 2012 – Summary

My planning article -> Venice 2012 planning

The trip went very much according to the plan.. except the lunch places & Scuola Grande di San Rocco was closed when we were in the neighborhood.

In short: Great city, but my Italian heart is in Tuscany (and Rome). I will probably not return.. all my upcoming trips to Italy will probably focus on Tuscany.

My 5 Highlights (random order):

  • Walking around in the city
  • St. Mark’s museum – the  Bronze Horses & View of the Piazza
  • Frari church – Titian: The Assumption of the Virgin
  • San Zaccaria church – Bellini: Madonna Enthroned with Child and Saints” (altarpiece)
  • Gallerie dell’Accademia – Veronese: The Feast in the House of Levi

My ratings:

  • Fun: 4/5
  • Art: 4/5
  • Music: –
  • walking around: 5/5
  • Hotel: 4/5 (mainly because of location, otherwise.. lower)
  • overall   4
