Our last site was the Correr Museum which included a collection of 13th to 18th century Venetian art, coins, military regalia, ship models and statues. Teodoro Correr was a serious art collector of his day who began his acquisition during the period of the Napoleonic invasion of Venice. Art was sold off dramatically as the elite fled the city leaving their valuables behind. There was a wide range of styles and it was an ...

A travel blog entry by abroszczak

Cereal, muesli, yogurt, scrambled egg slice, boiled eggs, Danishes filled with jam, toast with jams and coffee and juice for drinking. A big Buffett breakfast ready for a long day. Our first stop was on the island of Murano. Here we watched a demonstration of Murano glass making where the man created a vase and then, very impressively, a horse. It was ...
