Day 5 of Italy via Snarkypants
Cousin ‘O Love has booked us on an OPTIONAL (mind you) Gondola ride for our evening in Venice and YEY for her planning skilz.
I am all for “letting some guy paddle us around while we do nothing” (hat tip to a little fairy girl). I mean, I think that is the theme of this entire trip! :) I know Lauren would second me on that one!
DAY 5, Tues Today begins with a boat ride to the Island of Murano, known throughout the world for its glass manufacturing industry. Visit St. Mark’s Square to begin a guided walking tour of romantic Venice. Visit the Golden Basilica of San Marco, the Bridge of Sighs and the 14th century Doges’ Palace, whose facade features a massive late Gothic gate, known as the Porta della Carta, on the Piazzetta side. Take the remainder of the day to explore Venice on your own, or join an optional gondola ride with music along the famous Grand Canal and experience a piece of Venetian history
