We said good-bye to the City of Water with great reluctance. We would have happily stayed on in Venice for another month had we had the time and wherewithal. We made arrangements for a water taxi to pick us up at our hotel and transport us back to the mainland. From there a private shuttle took us to the airport where we rented a van for a road trip down the Adriatic coast. I hope to return to Venice and stay longer…sooner than later!
