Verona, Italy—Venice, Italy—Day 259

Today Mo and I made our way to Venice. What can I say—we arrived and took the water ferry to our hotel which was located RIGHT in the Piazza de San Marco. The scenery was beautiful—each little canal and building making the whole experience more and more surreal, and more and more touristy. Despite the hoards of Americans and cheesy tourist souvenir shops, Venice retains that sense of charm. We arrived mid-afternoon and spent the rest of the day and evening walking around, getting lost, finding our way again, and then getting lost some more.
