Also looked a bit at the form and walked to the monument that. Celebrates the unification of italy.

Ee started out with a tour of the Moreno glass works. This is were the famous italy glass is hand made. We saw a glass master make the glass by hand. It was hot!
Next we went to st. Marco square and did a tour of the Doge palace.
The would not allow photo on the inside :(
Next up was a gondola ride after lunch. I was with monica, Lori, and Tiffany. It was a nice hour ride with a bottle of bubbly wine.
Next I linked up with jerry, Mckennan and kenna's mom. had breakfast with them.
So after the ride we wandered. Saw many neat shops and I ended up bribing mckenna with chocolate to get her the rest of the way back to the hotel.
So now I am eating a nice penne and chicken dinner at Ginos
Tommowow we head to Florence :)

I have a night here in venice before the tour gets here, they are fly from new york so while is was walking around they are flying here.
So all told I will have 3 nights in venice.
Then I think we take a bus to pizza.
Stop for lunch I think. Then on to florence for two nights.
Then we bus down to rome for two nights and then I fly home.
Limited to my BB so I won't get comments unless you email me directly.
So far I have walked a ways to see the Piazza s. Marco.
It was getting dark by the time I got there and was full dark on the walk back. It is hard finding you way through streets that I can almost touch both sides. Only had to ask directions 3 times and got off course once.
Right now having dinner in the hotel and there is a live piano player that is fairly good.
Ta from Italy :)
