23rd Sept 16 - Venice
Entered the lagoon at about 6.00am and glimpsed the Grand Canal as we went to the Terminal Dock.
Then a boat trip to Murano and Burano. back to Venice for an expensive ice-cream in St Marks Sq.
|Venice from our balcony at 6.00am as we arrive
|Murano - Famous for its glass
|The Leaning Tower of Burona. Apparently the largest 'lean' in Italy!
|Burona is famous for its brightly coloured houses. The legend goes that the fisherman couldn't locate their own houses in the mist & fog that often descends on the Lagoon. So, to avoid the men folk entering the wrong houses, their wives demanded that the houses were painted different colours...
|St Marks Sq
|Ice creams in St Marks Sq never come cheap. Extra Euro 6 each for 'music'. The bill came to Euro 72!!! Worth every penny!
