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.

First thing, we have to finalise our packing as luggage has to be outside our door by 11pm. Done, now for some refreshments, dinner and a early ...
... the way.
I honestly didnt expect a trip to Italy would be this chill. The islands of Venice were more like the image of Venice that I had before coming here. It was like a stage set more than an actual city. Burano was a community in itself and it was really nice to imagine how everybody will know each other. I would want to come live in Burano when I am old but I guess that would be difficult since I was never part of their community.

... them to be. We asked the Gondolier to sing for us but he refused then he told us Aussie girls are easy and asked if we wanted to go home with him.. to which we said no. Then he got into an argument with another gondolier after our boat rammed into theirs. However despite all of this we still had fun and it was an experience to be had. The Bellini was so good and we all said cheers to celebrate a great trip so far.
After the Gondolas we all lined back up to ...
... Secret Itineraries Tour should really be on everyone’s Venice list.
After we left the palace, we headed to St Mark’s Basilica. The line was slightly long and we actually didn’t want to stay in line, but the line was moving really fast so we were inside in about 10mins. It was so packed with tour groups that it was hard to look around and we didn’t really enjoy it.
We headed to lunch afterwards. First ...
