Leaving Rome travelling through the changing scenery of golden plains, vineyards an quaint hilltops we crossed the Apennine Mountains coming into Venice. We made it to our Hotel an there we have a lovely dinner, an chat about the day with the group.
In the morning, we took the train into the the outskirts of Venice. From there we take a short boat ride into the center where we saw St.Marks' square, the Bridge of Sighs an Doge's Palace.
We got to see how the Famous Venetian glass is made, they are such craftsman, they way they can mould things out of Hot Sand. Every shop had some sort of glass ornaments that you could buy, an some of them were thousands of dollars, but amazing pieces!
We walked the city for hours taking in all of its beauty, getting lost in the waterway maze was half the fun =) It was ever so HOT in Venice the day we were there, that you became dehydrated very quickly an that lead to fatigue. So to re-charge the batteries we found this great park to have a rest in the shade of the large trees, it was nice!! Then it was nearly time for our GONDOLA ride, what fun that was...so many on the canals all at the same time, it was madness for while there. Its a pitty the Gondoliers are no longer aloud to serenade there occupants as it has been outlawed an you need to have a license to sing on the water!! I know crazy.....
We had a great time in Venice, even though it was very hot an full of pigeons!!
