Venice, Day 4 Italy

Such a rich day! We took the #82 vaporetto to the Rialto Market area and explored the vegetable and fish stands. The morning business of the Rialto Market was a color, variety, and sound sensation.

We also wandered the many narrow streets in that area which are full of kiosks and shops, bought a few gifts, and enjoyed excellent gelatos for a little snack.

We took another vaporetto to Murano, the glass blowing island, and watched a glass blowing demonstration. Very impressive! A French fellow helped us find the right vaporetto to Burano, the lace making island. Better than the lace were the beautiful pastel homes, so full of personality. We had a picture taking frenzy here. Every window, every door, had a sweet story to tell.

We had a very long vaporetto ride back to the San Zaccaria stop in the San Marco area where we went to Trattoria de Bruno for dinner. The atmosphere was lovely. There were musicians, a free aperitif if desired, and free Murano glass bonbons with il conto (the check—-the count). I had tagliatelle with scampi and raddichio which had an exquisitely different sauce on it and Bill had spaghetti with clams. We visited with the man at the next table who was from Geneva and who was feeling quite well after his 100 euro bottle of wine!
