Our train journey was smooth and effortless.
Once there, we bought three-day passes on ACTV and rode the vaporetto to Palanca, huffing and puffing our cheese over two bridges to arrive at the Hilton Molino Stucky.
We’re so fortunate to note that this is, at minimum, our fifth stay. Three previous have been with grandchildren in July or August. Sadly, our suite upgrades occur when we’re by ourselves in off-season.
We’re currently enjoying the Executive Lounge, and will wander somewhere for dinner in awhile.
The five grandchildren with whom we’ve stayed here might be surprised to know our fondest memories of Venice are of them.
Grandparents, on the other hand, wouldn’t be surprised at all.
