So Wednesday night we finally got to Venice about 9 pm. Then to find the hotel. This was quite the process and we walked all over the city trying to find it. Finally at about 10:15 we decided just to suck it up and take a water taxi (there aren't any other kinds...). We got to the hotel and crashed. But this hotel was beautiful and just how you'd think of a venice hotel being. It was wonderful.

Thurs we got up early and enjoyed yet another great continental breakfast and headed out. We got on the "bus" which was a boat and went to Murano Island. This island is amazing. All it is (besides houses) is shops upon shops of gorgeous hand blown glass. It was amazing! I love it.

We spent most of the rest of the day just walking around. Its true. Venice really IS all water. There are not any normal streets at all. Its gorgeous! and I thought Paris was pretty. Later in the day we took a cheesy over priced gondole ride, and I loved every minute! Venice is just magical. There is not much to do, as the city is the attraction, but it was gorgeous. Unfortunately we only had one day. But we enjoyed pasta, and Italian Gelato and it was fabulous.
