Venice Italy & The Venetian in Vegas

We went to Las Vegas this summer. In planning the trip Hubby was trying to find a place to stay. Knowing that I loved Venice he found the Venetian. I was so excited about staying there. The first photos were of the inside area of the Venetian.






We did take a gondola ride.

Here are some photos of the real Venice in Italy. We went there twice while living in Europe. I really loved it. These photo where taken in 1984.

This was our first Gondola ride

This is Piazza San Marco.
Known in English as
Saint Marks Square.

I just love this Photo!
The little old lady( in the green sweater)seems so mad, but in an Italian Mom Way.
I can just hear her" Come on take the picture already"
Yes that's me in the pink! Love the hair?

The Canals of Venice Italy

Here I thought I would show you how big the island of Venice really is. These were taken in the boat(water taxi) on the way to the island. There are no cars on the Island of Venice.
You can enlarge the photos by Clicking on them




The last photo in WW, is of the fountains display looking out from the Bellagio.
I liked that shot because it show the Eiffel Tower of the Paris Hotel. Oh yes we went to Paris also. That's for another day.
