As our first week comes to a close...

Settled in to life in Venice, we had glorious sunny cold weather and enjoyed the excellent presentations from Rebecca Darley on Byzantium, religion and history, Nigel concluded his superb talks with a practical demonstration of the technique of Egg Tempera and Gold Ground art, and Patrick Craig lifted our hearts with his exceptional musical talks.

On Saturday, at the crack of dawn, we headed off to Ravenna, dropping in to the 9th century Benedictine abbey of Pomposa on the way, as the morning mist cleared.

After a day in Ravenna we returned to find that Carnival was all happening!
