Longing for Venice - eyeflare newsletter 11
Lauri and I visited Venice earlier this month. It's a fabulous city and I feel we only scratched the surface. There will be more articles coming up about 'La Serinissima' but to begin with you can learn more about neighboring island Murano and its rich history of glass art manufacture. I've also added some pointers to travel planning resources for Venice visitors.
The rest of the new articles are listed at the bottom!
If you're in London this weekend
Time Out has some great suggestions for what to do, just slightly off the beaten path such as sawing bones or watching old men in funny hat swanning about with flowers. Or, celebrate Diwali on Trafalgar Square or maybe visit the Victoria & Albert Museum for some Halloween-inspired tours.
