We explored Venice and visited the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Basilica. By this point our energy for art galleries was on the wane, so you might have seen us rushing through with some quick nods at items that looked famous.
That afternoon we got in our Gondola Ride. Michael picked a short guy with a great personality and we really enjoyed it. When he heard we were going to Florence next he recommended a restaurant with giant steaks, which we visited the next day.
Venice was beautiful and interesting, but I felt like one day was enough.
We sprung for First Class again and took an evening train to Florence.
