Other side of our room, nice flat screen to bad the only channels in english were CNN and BBC.
All the necessities, super shower, toilet, bidet and sink! Really beautiful suite.

Why can't we buy wine like this in America? This was a small wine seller in Venice a local was getting a plastic water bottle filled with wine, so cool and cheap 2 euro per lita.
Hotel Antiche FigureI cannot say enough good things about our stay at this beautiful hotel on the Grand Canal. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful.
Members of Club Ponti De Santori practicing their rowing skills. I was in a water taxi and they came right by us so fast. I wish I could have composed this better, but better this than nothing.

Piazza San MarcoI love the raised sidewalks, there was so much water in the square. Deep enough to give your pants and shoes a good soaking.
Closed entrance to Basilica of San Marco. Sad to see that the water was covering the floor on the inside of the Basillica.
