A word of warning - Venice is CRAZY busy -- and this is supposed to be one of the "slower" seasons.
Waiting for the ferry to Murano - one of the islands off of Venice which is known for its glassworks since about 500 years ago.
Looking towards the island of Murano and their reknown lighthouse.
We had actually been looking across the water from Venice to this patch of land with a big brick fence around it. On the way over to Murano, Flora and I were chatting (ok, I was doing the chatting) about where they bury their dead people in Venice. Among all the stops we made, we came to one called "Cemeteria" and in a moment of curiousity, I made Flora get off... I think it was one of our best stops! As it was so calm and peaceful and actually beautiful at this huge cematary island.
This would make me think a little about living in Venice. All over the cemetary, there were headstones and graves just falling into the earth. A little scary...
Leaving Cemetaria stop
There were glass sculptures all over the islands - this was definitely one of the most interesting!
This was our first gelato in Italy - I had a panna cota and Flora had melon. I love mine!
