Venice, Italy

Last city in Italy… the gorgeous Venice. I’m still amazed that there are simply no cars or Vespas in Venice, just boats of all sorts. Unfortunately it rained the first couple days, but we had pretty good weather on the third.  We spent most of our time in Venice exploring the city, walking down just about every skinny street, eating some darn good Italian food, and window shopping at some fancy stores (way fancier than my typical trips to Target or Old Navy).On the second day in town we took a water bus over to Murano to see the incredible glass blowing we’d heard of. It is truly an art of a different kind, and if it had been more affordable, I’m sure we would have come home with all sorts of glass. We were lucky enough to see a few live demonstrations of the glass blowing, and it was so cool!

Here are some from our stroll around the city…



The Rialto Bridge… busy with people on their way to shop and eat along the Grand Canal


Probably the most popular area was St. Mark’s Square, where we laughed like crazy as we fed the pigeons…




Once I was all out of food for them, this guy decided to hang around a little longer. As he sat on my shoulder, I leaned away real quick to grab this shot.


Our last day in Venice ended with a gorgeous sunset. It was still pretty cloudy, but it made for a really cool, moody photo.

You should definitely go back, Misty! We had an awesome time. Just wait until the US dollar is in better shape :)
