The weather was lovely when I arrived in Venice but being the first Sunday of Carnevale the city was really crowded.

On my last day, there was a high tide - Aqua Alta - and water flooded St Mark's Square in places and by the Rialto the Grand Canal lapped onto the pavements! Luckily it subsided as the morning went on and I did not get wet!!
