May 26 - Three Days in Venice

May 26, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

On Monday we drove from Trento to Mestre, just out of Venice, on a rainy day. Near Verona it poured so hard that we pulled over until the downpour subsided.

Our three days in Venice have been glorious, but tiring. According to Veda's FitBit we walked more than seven miles each day. The weather has finally cooperated. It's been sunny and warm, but not hot - great sightseeing conditions.

We took a boat trip today to one of the outlying islands, Burano. It is known for its lace and colourful homes. Burano 1Burano 1 Burano 2Burano 2 Burano 3Burano 3 Burano 4Burano 4 Burano 6Burano 6 Burano 5Burano 5
