Venice, Italy - Castles Crowns and Cottages, Europe: Simply Irresistible Link Party






http://wwwcastlescrownscottages.blogspot.com/ 



While I have been to Italy quite a few times,
I have never been to Venice.
I have always wanted to go but haven't!
Can you believe that?

Castles , Crowns & Cottage asked me to plan an imaginary trip.
So here goes- a trip to Venice!
Come along with me as I take us to Venice, Italy. 






I always imagined birds would fly upon my arrival. 






The canals are so beautiful. 
I would spend all day on them.

All the beautiful restaurants.



unknown



Gorgeous houses...



unknown



Gondola waiting.






Gondola ride.

Then there is the yummy food of Venice.
I would eat & drink my way through Italy.






 And enjoy the great coffee they serve.



unknown



Great looking shops.



unknown


 
And the gelato.

Okay this is a little creepy but hey, it is Venice.
They always have a Ball each year called the Mascheranda Masked Ball during the Venice Carnival.



unknown




The chic Italian police.



 



Brandolini, renovated by Tony Duquette & Hutton Wilkinson.
I would love to stay here.






This is soooo glorious.






Just look at the ceiling!






I am sure those windows look over the canal.
Those bed hangings are gorgeous.






Look at the detail on that chest!

This is the Venice I would love to visit and to stay in.



Love,



Peggy

  1. GOOD GLORY! Peggy, it is so nice to see you up and running. I am an early bird and was up with our European pals as they are six hours ahead of us and were already taking the tours!

    Venice is simply a place to dream and float on those canals with romance thickening the air. I love what you've shared and that food.....you know, I'm getting hungry, visiting so many lush posts!!!!!!!!

    Many thanks for joining. Now have fun visiting the others and meeting new friends! Anita

  20. There is such magic in places with canals in the main streets, elegant policewomen, fabulous food and that feeling of a Roman Holiday....in this case, a Venetian Holiday! Thank you again Peggy for participating in this, and also for your kind words today! Isn't it just fun to see people unit under one objective, yet express their own expression? Have a splendid day dear Peggy, Anita
