Review of Day 4: Venice

Here’s an overview of what I did today:

Tues, June 16 – Venice

  • Breakfast on rooftop terrace
  • Walking tour with Alberto: Doge’s Palace, Basilica.
  • Visit other hotel.
  • Lunch at sandwich shop near hotel.
  • I go out to explore on own from 1:20 – 5:20. Vaporetti to near train station. Wander through non-touristy neighborhood. Stop for gelato, coffees, water. Walk through Friary church with Rick Steves audio guide (excellent!). Walk back to hotel.
  • Meet with Dad in lobby – arrange train ticket for tomorrow. Say goodbye to Alberto.
  • Room to rest. Out to dinner (meatballs, penne al arrabiata)
  • Out on boat and walking – taking pics – then to hotel
