The day started early with a drive from home to Heathrow, we left home at 4:20am and arrived at the airport just before 7:00. We had checked in the previous day and it was simply a case of dropping the bags off and making our way through security which on this occasion was very quick.
This was followed with a nice welcome cup of coffee and a bite to eat. It was then just a matter of waiting for our flight to be called so we sat and watched the planes coming and going through the large windows they have at terminal 5.
The flight took 1hour and 45 minutes and as soon as we had collected our luggage it was off to find where we caught the pre booked water taxi that would take us to our hotel.
The taxi ride across the lagoon was absolutely fantastic and all too soon over.
After checking into the hotel if was time to go off and explore. Rather than use the ACTV water buses we elected to walk so we could see more. Venice was very busy and also very hot and sticky but this didn’t stop us from having an amazing afternoon.
On our way back to the hotel we spotted P & O Azura on its sailaway from Venice. It will be our turn tomorrow. Tonight we will be off out to diner and will doubtless do plenty more walking.
