Stop!…at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum! (#3 in the Series)
As mentioned, my first visit to Venice, years ago, didn’t allow time to visit the Peggy Guggenheim Museum so I made sure it was a priority this visit. Peggy Guggenheim was a prolific art collector as well as a collector of lovers, and Lhasa Apsos dogs, while living her socially unconventional and extravagant lifestyle having been born into the famous Guggenheim family. This wikipedia article spells it out a little further: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peggy_Guggenheim
My hotel, Il Palazzo Experimental, as I had planned, was just a stroll away from the Guggenheim. And, once again, the walk over afforded me a handful of serene and architectural sights.
The hotel staff sent me off in the right direction and I relied on them for a restaurant recommendation for lunch. And, no, although tempting, it was not this below! Sometimes I am thankful I am lactose intolerant as it helps me to limit my eating and, well, at other times, well, I just drool…
The recommended restaurant was easy to locate. And, look at my views as I was about to sit down at my designated table.
Not only was I not complaining about my canal view but my selected entree’s taste was delectable.
A few more minutes walk after my late lunch and I was at the museum’s courtyard.
