Incredible film footage by Brian Wilson.
London, the Eurostar train, then Milan, then Venice.
May, I flew over Venice, before that Istanbul, then over the Alps.
The architecture and mountain scenery of northern Italy is very much that I found in Bassano del Grappa.
Excellent the way Brian Wilson captures the spirit of Venice. Looking down the Grand Canal, the scene could be straight out of a painting by Canaletto.
It never occurred to me to travel Eurostar to Venice until I was in Venice and saw the Eurostar trains.
