Dinner and Film Location in Venice

After finishing our boat tour of Venice's Grand Canal, we went in search of dinner. Jacob had one objective in mind: tortellini. The first restaurant we stopped in had plenty of pasta but none of it was stuffed. And also the second. And also the third. We were almost ready to give up when we came upon a famous square that had a restaurant that suited our needs.

Jacob shared tortellini with his sister while Mommy had pizza and I had ravioli. The only challenge was the tortellini came in a cream sauce and Jacob likes his in tomato sauce. We asked if they could changes sauces and the waitress politely declined. Luckily (or craftily), my dish had a tomato-based sauce. I dipped Jacob's pasta in my sauce and all was right with the world.

We saw a museum on the other side of the plaza that looked familiar.

San Barnaba, where X marks the spot

If you've seen Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, this is the "library" where Indy found some clues in pursuit of the Holy Grail! Mommy and daddy were excited to see this though the kids were not appreciative. We may show them a clip from the movie when we get back. Or they get older.

On our way back to the hotel, Lucy asked for ice cream again, like at lunchtime. Since it was her birthday and we are such great parents, we stopped for another helping of cool, creamy goodness. This time Lucy had a cup instead of a cone and she was especially happy. We walked back to the hotel by a different route, going down the tightest road we ever found.

Back at the hotel, Jacob had his snack (since he doesn't like ice cream) and we went to bed excited for our next day in Venice.
