First room was smoky. Changed rooms which helped. Bike storage room was toxic. Big cracks in building and peeling paint in room. Far from center of city.

Murano may Be a bit tacky but... Today we eats!!! Found a posh enough restaurant that was actually prepared to seat one Had a very nice fish meal and a long sit down as Italian service is slow you just embrace the chance to rest out of the noon heat While there are some salads on the menu only tourists seem to eat those everyone else tucks into a big plate of pasta for primi piatti, that's about 8oz pasta for ...

First stop: Rialto bridge. This place was pretty popular with locals and tourists. The bridge was lit up by the afternoon sun which made it even more pretty. We climbed up ...
... Po River, but really it had become a celebration of meeting our new friends. Giovanna and Gregory had biked with us for about 15k in total, but they had to head back to Rovigo so Giovanna could pick up her other child. We thanked her for so generously helping us. It had been a fabulous afternoon cycling along with them. We then carried on to Ferrara. The dike trail ended a few kilometres from city. We were then in busy traffic again, but I was much more relaxed about it ...
