Venice was a must see, at least according to Eric, but I didn’t enjoy it that much. The canals were fabulous, but I felt like the entire city was a tourist trap. Only a romantic getaway would motivate me to visit Venice again, and I’m confident that traveling with a significant other and more money to spend would make Venice much more enjoyable.
We also took a short trip to Murano, one of the islands close to Venice city. Murano is known for its glass making, where all sorts of objects are created – vases, chandeliers, trinkets, etc. We walked through a free tour of one of the factories and were amazed at the skill of the glass masters.
