We took the train leaving about 5pm from innsbruck to venice arriving about 12pm , we then took a self guided walking tour with all our luggage until around 1.30 am........due to the fact i hadnt printed off the directions to get from the train station to the hotel. I was dripping in sweat due to having to carry the 18kg luggage up and down all the steps at every bridge over each canal! A local ended up walking us to the hotel after he phoned the hotel for directions.we met lots of kind people that night. I went to discover venice by day next morning......a huge disappointment the rialto bridge is undergoing repair and on one side the had a cover painted as th bridge and then had a huge billboard in the centre!!!!! How could they!!. I guess ill get over it eventually. Travis not keen on venice due to being old and buildings looking run down....well some are 500 years old. He did take great delight in pointing out a big rat running past on our first night walking tour.
