... this afternoon there was a guy with his wife and kid on one and he was singing oh sole mio very loudly and very well. We heard the song and then when the gondola came through the tunnel and we saw it was a passenger singing everyone clapped. The gondolier was just laughing. We started by taking the water bus out to Murano before everything closed for the afternoon. And again, we though Murano was a tiny island off of Venice but it's ...

Bike, Boat, and Hike taly

... to Portofino through winding narrow roads. Some parts of the road, the bus had to stop to wait for the opposing traffic to clear. At the blind curves, the bus driver had to blow air horn to warn oncoming motorists. Finally we arrived at Portofino at the tip of the peninsula, with its clear water, colorful buildings, shops and restaurants. We hiked up to the castle, church, tower and lighthouse. Fantastic and dramatic ...

... swimming anyone?
Glass blowing was an interesting sight to see. The way they make the glass is actually really cool. (*Once I figure out how to get my movies off my complicated camera, I'll upload the video on here*)
I also bought an authentic Venetian mask that is absolutely fabulous. My only wish is that Carnivale would have to going on when I was there so that I could have worn it all the time :)
They weren't lying when they said ...

... to music and cooking the breakfast which was quite delectable. It was nice to be able to just relax and take a break from all of the sight seeing for a little while. That's really one thing that can not only exhaust you, but also make one susceptible to becoming ungrateful of everything you are seeing. That day we all relaxed and even explored some hidden ally ways throughout the city, it was a really fun time despite the not so cooperative weather. Once we had ...

... not built properly, needs some decent British engineers to fix it I think.. We had a good wander around again looking at all the sights and taking lots of photos. We paid a visit to the Venice supermarket to get some mosquito stuff as we were bitten alive last night so now we’ve got a range of different candles, smelly things, thingies to plug in and some after bite gel so hopefully were all covered.. Oh and we’ve put ...

    Great location on Lido de Venice. Included breakfast was charming. Right near the water taxis and within walking distance of the. Beach! Bike rentals across the street. Just 15 minutes on the water taxi to the main island of Venice. Good choice to escape the craziness of the cruise passengers but close enough to all the action. Would totally return back to this hotel.
