Up and ready for breakfast. We all went as a group into Venice this morning for our walking tour. We caught the bus to the train station and then caught this people mover which was kind of like a train but like a cable car, it had about 3 carriages which you all just stand in, they aren't very big but can squish people in.

So we headed home for our dinner of antipasto and to sleep through our last night in Venice before heading to Tuscany for a ...
So I'm back. Today we did St. Mark's Basilica and Doge's palace. They were both magnificent places with beautiful artwork. We started at the basilica which was so beautiful. We did a short walkthrough of the actual church before heading up to the museum. At one point Dad thought the 15 statues in the front were Christ and his 14 apostles (notice the 14 part).
