Ice Cream at Nico's
Just down the canal, on the Fondamenta delle Zattere, the ice cream coinnesseur can find an ice cream outlet which boasts some of the best ice cream in Venice. It is so sublime, and in so many varieties, that we could not wait long enough to photograph our cups and cornets long enough to photograph them. As it cost more to sit on their seats on the pontoon, we perched a little further along the fondamenta on the stacked duckboards which form elevated walkways during the acqua alta, or
highest tides (which flood the pavements), and these photographs represents aspects of the view we enjoyed while we did so, over the neighbouring island of Giudecca.
