Travel Blogs from Venice
Today was our day to spend in Venice. We started the day with a tour of the Does Palace. The Doges' were the governing people for many years in Venice.

Pretty amazing masks I must say. I bought one to wear on Halloween. Stopped for pasta, wine, and dessert. We were all on cloud nine. What a great day full of sites, food, and fun. I kinda want to stay here ...
