Kate had a business trip to Italy about 30 minutes outside Venice and I just couldn't pass that up! We left a couple of days early and headed to Venice.
This really is the typical view around nearly every corner in Venice - it seems like the view down nearly every canal was fit for a post card.
We were blown away by all of the people in Venice - they were everywhere! This is one busy place. The cruise ship traffic doesn't help either. Everyday there were 6 cruise ships in port.
We found that the nights and early mornings were spectacular. Dinner each night started between 8 and 10 PM and we had the whole place to ourselves from 5-8 AM. Each morning we woke up early and visited many of the sights before all of the people were out and then return to the hotel for the most amazing breakfasts.
