It was again time to get on the road to Venice
Returned the car (to the rental cars own parking building) and caught the water ferry. As soon as we stepped off at our stop, the streets narrowed. They were hardly 5 stones wide and you could reach both walls with outstretched hands! From the main street (all of 10 stones wide!) we saw a sign to our hotel (3 stars) turn the next corner and another sign (2 stars) on the doorway (1 star) its amazing what photo-shop can do to brochures, but we weren't planning on spending much time there anyway.
Shannon was excited to get out and go SHOPPING?! Not her usual style.
The maze of little streets, canals and bridges was really amazing and they were made all the more smaller by the tall buildings each side of the road that is a totally different style to anything we've seen before.
The next morning, we started off early to get to the main tourist square (San Marcos) before all the tourists got there. Except, by wandering and going into every second or third store, we managed to go in the totally wrong direction (twice) and by the time we had walked past the square (not seeing it) and around again, it was filled with tourists and pidgeons.
We did a lot of shopping and got most of the last gifts we needed and really had lots of fun. Next stop was to fly to Paris...
