Our day in Venice

A half day off the beaten path by private boat to nearby Islands in the lagoon of Venice. We see the Island of Murano and the Hermitage of San Fresco del Deserto and have lunch on the " fisherman" island-Burano-

Enjoying St Mark's

We had a wonderful afternoon browsing around and just sitting on the Sq watching the pigeons and people. A good time to write home. The kids went and did their thing and we returned at a certain time for the bus ride back to the hotel.

Those all colors houses on the Island

After the fish lunch on Burano the kids walked around and looked at the different shops across the bridges and admiring all the different ways the houses were painted-thought this to be a typical view of the Island.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The boat rides to the different Islands alot of fun
  • Cons:We saw no crime-but were very careful with our belongings
  • In a nutshell:A must see area
