As we walked through the lovely, tree-lined Viale Giuseppe Garibaldi, we came upon a flower and plant sale.

After crossing a bridge over the canal, we found that we were at the entrance to the Giardini della Biennale, a park area where the Venice Biennale takes place. The gardens were created by Napoleon Bonaparte, and contain thirty permanent pavilions, in which the famous art show is held every two years.
The Monumento a Giosuè Carducci, by Annibale de Lotto, dates from 1912. Carducci, a poet, was the first Italian to receive the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Next up: We make our way back to the apartment via a different route, and get delightfully lost!
