Our final day of riding dawned favorably: clear, lovely temperature, and a flat and relatively short ride of 47k. Because of the short ride, we spent an hour or so exploring Treviso's old town before heading out the city gates along the bike trail that hugs the Fiume Sile - the Sile River - for dozens of kilometers.

We then needed to hurry back (no time to get lost!) for our boat ride around the Venice Lagoon. We left five minutes late waiting for Eileen, but she didn't show up... It was the first time we left someone behind! We sailed over to Burano Island where we had free time to shop for lace and look at the colourful ...
