... the directions. Upon getting to Mestre, we had to have gelato as a reward! We never took pictures of our nightly washing of sweaty bike clothes nor of our laundry hanging in various places about the hotel room. We decided to not display our dirty laundry for all to see... But we're sure you can imagine it! While we're sad that the ride is now over, we are quite happy to be done with the nightly laundering part of the ...

This area of Venice was much nicer in my opinion, as it seemed less frequented by tourists and had a few trees and wider streets. We all met up afterward and went to the Venice branch of Grom gelateria. I filled up on what I thought would be quite possibly my last taste of quality Italian gelato in some time.

What a great time we had with these ...

The vaporetti or water buses we took from Venecia Santa Lucia - Venice train station, to the islands and from each island to the next were extremely relaxing. It's very pleasing to drift along without all the traffic, noise and road rage!!
Venice is somewhere I definitely would return!
