City Breaks to Venice: Dave's View

The sound of clicking heels on pavements in Venice was used to great unsettling effect in the 1973 horror/ghost story Don't Look Now starring Donald Sutherland and the delectable Julie Christie. Despite the efforts of that film, Venice is, for me, still an impossibly romantic place. That peculiar combination of the narrow streets, tall old buildings and the omnipresence of water, I suppose. I find it uniquely of its place and familiar and like Proust's Madeleines, or the smell of my mum's stew doing its thing in the oven, the sound of heels immediately grounds me in the wateriest of cities, Venice.

It was a great holiday and went like clockwork from an operational standpoint, it always does with OT
