The young woman who welcomed us to Ca' Due Leoni was the perhaps the nicest receptionist that I have ever encountered. The rooms were clean, we got some free candy, and also a free map with sound tourist advice. It is close to the train station - but not in a seedy area like the usual train-station-prostitute-drug-hotels. It a simple, but nice and clean hotel.
(-) There is no view and the breakfast was very simple.

... the kids went ice skating at the local rink and we decided to try somewhere else for dinner - kids enjoyed Hamburgers and chips. The next day was an early start, as we needed to make our way to Milan. After a quick breakfast whipped up by Lorenz's collaborator, we were out the door heading back to the cars by Water Taxi.

... best pesto pasta

the room to change into cooler clothing and check out our first sights. The first place we visited was ...
... while tourists photograph anything that moves. 85,000 tourists can visit Venice on busiest days. There were 4 cruise ships in port while we were there and planes landed nonstop at the airport.
Using our 24 hour pass, we boarded the water taxi (or vaporetto) and headed for Murano, the island just off Venice famous for its hand made glass. The industry was moved from Venice to the island after several fires from the foundries threatened Venice ...
... helpful. After yet another vapporetto ride to meet her at 830 am, we found her at what turned out to be the Venice bus station. This is a very big deal with lots of people and bus traffic, since almost everything that the locals need (including groceries) must be purchased on the mainland.
The most affordable transportation in Venice is the Vaparetto, or water bus. I'm sure that residents can purchase ...
... buildings to scamper about!
We hopped onto another vaporetto and went to Campo Santa Maria Margherita. We bought our daily gelato and then walked back home. Ken promptly fell asleep!
I dragged him back out into the streets and we grabbed a caffeine hit and went exploring again. Venice is such a great place to walk around. In parts there are crowds of people, but just a little further in and you have little streets to yourself.
