Trains to Venice

semi-overcast 69 °F

By K: Three-that's how many trains we had to get on and off to make it from Monte Carlo to Venice, Italy. We had to wake up at 4:00 AM to be downstairs in our hotel lobby by 5:00 AM because our chauffeur was there to take us to the train station. We got on our train and rode on it for about two and a half hours. Then we got off that train to get on our next train. We were on that train for about an hour and a half. After that, we got off and went to get on the last train. We rode on that train for about two and a half hours. When we arrived at the Venice train station, we met our driver. He took us to our hotel where we got settled in our room. Then we went to the bus stop and took a bus to Piazzale Roma, where we got a water-taxi. We took the water-taxi to the 'heart' of Venice and walked around the town. We went shopping, had gelato at Piazza San Marco, went on a gondola ride, and ate a pure Italian dinner to celebrate our parent's 20th anniversary. Then we took the water-taxi back to the bus stop and took the bus back to our hotel. We need a good night's rest because tomorrow, we will be walking and walking. We have a tour all day tomorrow, and there's so much to see. I keep telling my legs, "Prepare to be tired".

By far, my favorite photos! A gondola ride in Italy is on my list of things I want to do. Looks like you enjoyed yourself!
