Wow, what a city! Casino Royale felt all so familiar but no Bond appeared. Took a Gondala ride around the waterways, then a walk around San Marco piazza. Did some shopping of course and had a delicious Ham and mozarella melt for lunch. Then half of the group caught the ferry to nearby islands of Murano, Burano and Torcello.

Murano is famous for its handblown glass and we watched a demostration of ornaments being made.

Then off to the fishing village of Burano where lace is made. The houses here are painted a wonderful arrayof colours.
