On Day 6 of my trip, I woke up to a beautiful sunny day in Venice. First thing I did was make my way St. Mark's Square for a tour of the Basilica. The line had been long on the previous day, so I figured if I got there when it opened I could miss the line. This strategy worked.
Notice: (1) their bell tower leans, and (2) the tour guide has the most stereotypical Italian speaking English accent ever.
Burano is a fishing island and also famous for lace making.
We had a fair amount of time there and yet, I almost missed the boat because I was so caught up in the lace shopping!
Y'all. This was founded in 639, and first renovated in 864. It is OLD.
After Torcello, it was time to head back to Venice. Per usual, I took the name of my purse (The Neverfull) as a challenge.
I got some good pics from the water coming as we came back into Venice.
Then I meandered back from Rialto to St. Mark's. It was a route I hadn't been before, so there was lots to check out. I stopped in many shops and worked to fill my purse back up.
That's almost a wrap on Venice. Stay tuned for the last day of my trip... Venice, and back to Milan.
