Venice, day 2, out and about around the Grand Canal

After completing our tour of the Doge's palace we emerged onto Piazza San Marco to a brilliant January sun. The gondolas were bobbing nicely on a limpid sea and we had a look at the Bridge of Sighs we had walked over earlier.

We caught the vaporetto up to the Rialto where we had been told there was a food shop -  a Co-op no less, where we bought provisions for the apartment. Everyone in Venice seemed to dragging around wheely suitcases to carry home their shopping, clanking over the cobbles. 
On the way home we stopped at our local church, San Stefano, to have a look inside.
