We landed in Rome and 60 minutes later we were on the train to Venice. Having only slept for about an hour on the plane, we both spent the ride drifting in and out of sleep. The Venice train station is kinda awesome. You arrive and get off the train and it looks like most any other train station, until you walk out the doors. Then you see it, The Grand Canal. And boats. Lots of boats. We stayed at an awesome B&B, Ca Bonvicini. We really enjoyed our stay here. Had some great meals, saw some art, some palaces, some churches, a market or two, walked all over, visited the Jewish Ghetto, the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, visited Murano, saw some glass being blown, bought some street art, went to the top of a tower, drank at cafes, rode in a gondola, a water taxi and a vappereto. Even though Venice is expensive and a bit touristy, I think we would go back if we had the chance.
