We loved it so much yesterday that we planned to do it all again today. Not the same of course but a return to Venice as there's not actually much else to do here and it is such an amazing place that it deserves a return trip. They say you should never go back and I'm not sure if that is right or not but it's probably fair to say that today was not as much of a success as yesterday.
