Travel – Markets in Venice, Italy

Water Taxi in Venice Canal, Italy

It’s amazing to arrive in Venice by train, walk through the station and be greeted by a sight better than you imagined. This picture is taken just around the the corner of the Venezia Santa Lucia Station.

Delicatessen in Venice, Italy

This was a lovely shop to buy fresh ingredients to combine a selection of mixed meats and cheese to go with our crusty baguettes. Washed down with local red wine this made a really yummy lunch.

Fruit and Vegetable Markets Venice, italy

The morning markets were fascinating, Australians don’t get to see cactus fruit (the large pink spotted fruit) or Sword fish for sale. We had some sword fish steaks for lunch in southern Italy a few weeks later, it was very enjoyable.

    • Hi Mick,
      My husbands family are from Arena, I’m not sure what is more beautiful the scenery or the lovely people who live there…
      I hope we are lucky enough to see Arena and his family again this decade.

      Kind Regards
