As so often happens in Venice, I walked much further than I had planned to, drawn by the character of the nondescript streets between the Arsenale and the Giardini, which are a long way in character from the Piazza San Marco.
I went to see the Chiesa di San Pietro di Castello, which annoyingly closed the precise moment I arrived:-
But I enjoyed its cloister:-
There was a lot of washing hung out to dry:-
And I admired the many lions guarding the gates to the Arsenale:-
I wanted to find the Chiesa di San Francesco della Vigna. But, instead, got lost:-
And ended up in the Campo di SS. Giovanni e Paolo by mistake:-
