Italy : Day 7

August 10th
Time sure does fly when you are having fun. This is our last full day in the beautifu city of Venice. We begin by exploring the most beautiful church in San Marco Square and then follow it up with the Doge Palace, which is where all of the royalty and parliament lived and the famous bridge of sighs is connected to the prison, which is the botton of the palace. These sights were amazing. We change into shorts and then explore more and make our way to the Academia bridge and Suzi wants to see some modern art at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, but we arrive and as the book notes that hours are not consistent in Venice it is closed for the day. At this point, we are a little bit tired of sights, so it may have been a blessing in disguise. We continue our exploration on foot making this another 10-hour day of walking and explore the nooks and crannies of the bridges and canals. We head home around 4:00 p.m. for a rest and then wrap up some last minute shoppoing around 6:00 p.m. We shower up and select a wonderful restaurant called Da Raffaele from our book
