Taking the train from Padua to Venice did seem like a bit of a cop out but everyone we talked to said that there was just too much traffic to make the ride safe. As we came across the causeway on the train it certainly didn't seem safe to be cycling with the speeding cars we saw. It takes less than 40 minutes on the train to arrive at the St. Lucia station.

Tomorrow is another day of exploring this odd but beautiful ...
... at St. Marks, we decided to hop on the next vaporetto to S. Silvestro to find lunch in a quieter neighborhood.
I consulted my Top 10 guide and we settled on Antica Birreria in Campo San Polo. Again, lunch was salad and pizza - but this salad had the best mozzarella cheese of the trip!
