We travelled to Europe and we spent one day in Venice.  I wish we had longer to spend visiting the city.  If there were one place in the world that I think everyone should go - it is Venice.  It is such an incredible place.  We came in by boat and were dropped off near St. Mark's Plaza.  We spent the day getting "lost" in Venice.  They say the best way to see the city is just to get lost and wander it's streets.  However, it really is difficult to get lost.  Arrows and directions are painted on the side of the buildings and you just follow the arrows to the places you want to see, and back to the place that you started. 

These are a few of the pictures I took while I was there.  I do not have a picture of us in the gondola, but I took the ones of the Gondolas and the buildings along the way.
