ARRIVAL IN VENICE FOR A THREE WEEK STAY
I have been anticipating this return trip to Venice for three years. I'm staying at the same house, so it is like going home! So, here are some pictures of my arrival.
On The Orange Line....easy transfer from Marco Polo Airport to anywhere on the island. Of course, if you want to spend the money, a water taxi is pretty cool! I usually travel by the Orange Line arriving and water taxi leaving.
The Ferry ride down the Grand Canal to my stop in Dorsoduro! I'm so happy I got to see this HANDS Art installation!
They have made some changes at the Airport since 3 years ago. They now have an enclosed walkway that takes you to where all the different Ferries are & Water Taxis. Very easy to navigate.
More pics of traveling to Dorsoduro!
One of the great things I love about Venice is it's contemporary Art. Yes, you can see all the classics, but I am into Contemporary Art & am in heaven. The Peggy Guggenheim Art Museum is Fabulous.

HELLO VENICE, ITALY!
I'm returning shortly & will be continuing my exploration from where I left off 3 years ago! I was fortunate enough to rent the same house & can't wait to return!
Love my Garden!
So many things to still see. Also considering a side trip to Verona!

The end of week #2 in Maiori and I definitely have a routine. It seems the one thing I am having difficulty adjusting to is the four hour Siesta everyday! Since I'm not a morning person, my favorite shopping time does not coincide with the Town Schedule! However, I did make sure I went to the Friday Market!
The Cheese Vendor!
AND EXPLORING another Street
Today was laundry day....no washer, but keeping up on hand laundry. And since tomorrow will be sunny and warm, my laundry is washed and pre-drying to be hung out on the sun terrace in the morning.
Meanwhile, I found a new street to explore. Via Nuova Chiunzi. More of a neighborhood street with small local hangouts, another Netto Supermercato, 2 flower shops and lots of homes. Enjoy!
The Fruits of My Trek from Maiori to Minori!
It was worth venturing on the Amalfi Coast road to see a really charming small village MINORI! However, I did return to Maiori via the Ferry....a lovely 5 minute trip. Here are my pictures taken that afternoon.

AMALFI.....A Beautiful Village on the Amalfi Coast
Just a 15 minute Ferry Ride from Maiori along the Amalfi Coast is this lovely Village and the connection point to other towns along the Amalfi Coast and Capri!
You land at a dock which has connecting Ferries to Sorrento, Salerno, Positano, Capri and others. It is probably one of the simplest and most scenic means of transportation on the Amalfi Coast.
Following are some pictures taken during my day there on October 29, 2016.
Views from the Ferry on the way to Amalfi.
Walking around the town. Surprisingly, the town Center is void of all those stairs that are found in so many other Coastal towns. Of course, if you venture out of the town Center, it is mostly up hill.
A little lunch in Amalfi.......I have not had pizza since arriving back in the US.....there is no other place but Italy to eat Pizza!!!!
The Pottery in all the towns along the Amalfi Coast is incredible. I bought tons of it....as gifts and for myself. Luckily I was traveling back to the States by Ship & once I got to FL I shipped it all home so I didn't have to take it on the plane with me.
Such a beautiful little village!
