Murano Island, Venice

Day 3

Sunday morning was great -woke up fairly early, ate breakfast and went for the bus to the ferry to head to Murano Island where the hand blown glass is made. A couple of hiccups - Went around the ENTIRE Island of Venice to get where we wanted to go instead of the most direct route. I probably need more practice ready the water taxi map. No problem - it gave us a great view of the city. Murano was alot of fun - we enjoyed it more than Venice since it was less crowded and the shopping was great. Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas!!!! Best part was that late in the day when all the tourist left, the Italiens came out. We decided to eat dinner there along the canal. Food was half the price of our Venice meal the previous night and the 1.50 Euro per glass wine was just as good as our 30 Euro bottle. Mom is hilarious getting on and off the water taxis - she is definitely not European! Love staying on Lido. The beach was lovely and mom and I discovered that bikinis can be worn by any age though you won't find us buying one any time soon.
