|Subject: Re: Venice and surroundings|
Hi Chitra. Venice is a wonderful place, full of hidden corners.
no place else like it in the world. When we were there in 1999,
on the Lido and I would definitely recommend it as a place
to see. There is
a Jewish cemetary from the 1380s, a monestery or maybe it is
is the Lido beach itself and a very old town at one end of
the island whose
name I cannot remember. YOu can take the bus all around the
island which is
really a lovely suburb of Venice. There will be more than enough
and see in Venice and the surrounding islands to keep you busy
for a week.
