... the grand canal from the Saint Lucia
train station to the docks of Saint Marco square. The cost of the trip was 7€
and it was worth every cent!
The word Doge means Duke. So, ultimately, I did a tour of the Duke's
Palace! It was quite interesting. The tour covered the prisons, Giacomo Casanova

So we woke up late today, almost 9am for all of us, yeah for that! We are really starting to get tired! We had our rowing class this morning, so we got ready and headed out to find it. Everyone says its very easy to get lost in Venice, and the map showed a 30 min. walk. So we left around 10, planning to stop at the Rialto market and leave time for getting lost!

We got two cubes per glass at an Athen's restaurant because they knew we were Americans. That was a luxury. Looks like an early arrival into Philadelphia.
