One week through Tuscany and Venice10 November 2011
Day 34 - 40: Monday, July 5th - Saturday, July 10th
Heather headed back to Chicago this morning, and Holly and I whimpered a bit as we hugged her good-bye. The two of us boarded our train to Florence, and looked forward to yet another adventure in Tuscany.
Since we've already elaborated on our experience in Florence, we'll jump right into our findings in another Italian city we love: Venice. After a few more days in Florence, we traveled to Venice to get in the spirit of our upcoming vacation-from-our-vacation. A handful of days separated us from our long-awaited luxurious Norwegian cruise.
Our mom and aunt would be flying in to meet us soon, and we wanted to explore Venice for a bit before getting ready for our Mediterranean journey.
We arrived in Venice and we were immediately lost. After navigating the water-taxis, which are a bit pricey, we made our way to the correct dock.
Since the streets are so narrow and the buildings are so close to one another, it was a challenge to find out which piazza we were approaching, and which street we were following.
By no means did we want to waste away our days in Venice, but before we knew it the days had come and gone and we were on our way to the cruise ship dock to meet our family! We were ready for luxury.
