More Wandering Around Venice

We left the vaporetto at the S. Toma stop. I wanted to head into a part of Venice that we hadn't been to yet. We found a nice little cafe for lunch where I had risotto with mushrooms, definitely a dish I'm going to have to find a recipe for. My husband and I also shared a spritz. This is an orange colored cocktail I had seen MANY people drinking. Finally I just broke down and asked someone. The orange ones are made with Aperol. The red ones, stronger, are made with Campari. I have to admit I didn't care for it but I'm glad we tried it.

We were right next to Santa maria Glorios dei Frari. Our daughter strongly suggested we pay a visit to this church. She said this church was so different from all the others she saw and took her breath away. Well, she was right. Unlike so many others we saw, this one was open and bright. It was a refreshing change.
