Venice was outstounding. Truth be told a large part of the day was spent in murano oggling at a lot of beautiful glass. We could have spent a fortune in murano, but we settled for a small fortune instead. Glenn wasnt that fussed on going to murano, but he is the one that spent the most money on some particularly beautiful goblets. Fingers crossed that we get them home in one piece.
well we got booted off the cruise first thing in the morning, and then had to lug or suitcases to the train station where we found out after the lugging that there was a free shuttle!! grrr. We ended up on an earlier train and enjoyed spending the 4 hours to rome looking at the scenery. finding the hotel at the other end wasnt so fun as i have lost or thrown out the itinerary. Thankfully the information centre knew where it was and gave us a map.
Rome is an amazing place. You walk around a corner and go wow, I wonder what that is. We did the colloseum and hop on hop off tour on the first day, then walked from one side to the other taking in the temple ruins where julius ceasar was probably stabbed, the pantheon, trevi fountain, spanish steps and borghese villa. Today was all about the vatican and boy do my feet hurt!! Amazing though!! SOOO much to see in the vatican museums, sistine chapel and basillica.
Wow, off to germany in the morning!!
