End of Day 2

When a vaporetto arrived at Burano, we boarded it knowing that it will eventually go to Venice. Eventually. As it turned out the water bus was taking a few more stops than we wanted, but we weren't complaining. We stopped at two other islands that we didn't visit yet (although we stayed in the vaporetto) Lido and Torcello. And by the time it was going back to Venice, it was dark. It even took the long circuitous, back roads or back waters on the way to Venice.

We stopped at St. Mark's Square hoping to visit it minus the crowd. No luck. The place was as crowded at night and we tried our best to take our shots minus the crowd. We were quite successful.

Somewhere in Piazzale Roma we stopped for a bite to eat. The practice here is to get a spritz, the drink of Venice, and drink it standing in the bar. Unfortunately, I was too short to accomplish this, so we got a booth and a couple of Panini to complete our meal.

  6. I've never seen it during the night as I had to take the early evening trip back to Padova where I was staying. I love Venice! Hope I can visit it again.

  11. Venice at any time of day or night is beautiful - and your vaporetto ride certainly gave you some lesser-seen sights of this beautiful city.

    the nite shots are spectacular, the 3rd to the last reminded me of Donna Leon's novel.
