I know the previous post summarized my impression of arrival in Venice, but let's step back just a tiny bit and examine arrival in more detail.

 
 
 
 
Approaching Venice via train   
 
After a night on the ferry we spent the day on the train, starting in Genoa and changing in Milan. We'll be in Venice by nightfall.

On the causeway to Venice  
 
We stepped off the train, exited the train station, then bought vaporetto tickets from a canal side vendor. We walked a short distance and then onto the platform for the boat to Giudecca Palanca. It should leave us just a few doors from our apartment.

Up the Giudecca canal via vaporetto  
 
The photo was taken from the vaporetto on the wide Giudecca canal. We got on at the train station and are heading to the Giudecca Palanca station. The building on the right is the Molina Stucky, once a pasta factory, now a furniture company and a Hilton. The boat coming in from the left is a car ferry.

From S. Marco to S. Marco  
 
We are on line 2, which goes back and forth between two different but adjacent San Marco stops, passing the train station and our apartment along the way. The sign says you must validate your ticket. Or better yet, buy a multi-day pass.

View across the water from apartment  
 
Too tired to open the windows I shot through the glass, hence the reflection on the right. Across the water is a large white church and either side of the church is a Zattere vaporetto stop.
