Unfortunately where we stayed in Venice did not have wifi so I was not able to update the blog daily which was unfortunate because it ended up being one of my favorite places that we went to on the trip. The city is just so different than really any other on the planet that one cannot help imagining what it would be like if the only way to get around was either by boat or on foot in every city.
St. Mark's Square
The main attraction of Venice (well other than the gondolas and other boats) was St. Mark's Square and the Doge palace.
Famous for its lace, the little town of Burano is just an hour by boat from Venice. The pastel colored houses made for a very upbeat and happy atmosphere. The detail that goes into each square inch of lace is truly astounding.
