We enjoyed a day in Venice, 5:30am to 8:30pm. What a day it was!  We had St. Mark's Square to ourselves at 7am...

The Grand Canal became really busy as the day progressed.

We made our way over the Rialto Bridge

To the historic Rialto Fish Market. Octopus anyone?

Ah the gondola...

Venice -I definitely want to come back!

It's summer in Roma, meaning it is affollata y calda. Crowded and hot! A good game plan is to walk from water fountain to water fountain, stay in the shade, skip the heat of the day, stay inside at the musuems, enjoy the awesome public parks and avoid the Disneyland parts of Rome.

Off the beaten path in Roma makes for some beautiful photographs. Enjoy!
