Our First Day in Venice

Day 1. Get ready for a lot of pictures!

The drive to Venice was beautiful as we made our way through the Alps. I always want to nap on long road trips, since I easily become car sick, but it was hard to close my eyes when we kept passing little villages and castles.

We are here!

Lots and lots of paper mache masks.

Gondolas everywhere

Walking around the markets.

Taking a break for a little pistachio and cookie gelato.

More walking around and taking it all in.

St. Mary of the Friars

Our friends Jay and Barb in front of the Palazzo Ducale.

We also took a trip up to the top of St. Mark's Bell Tower.

Views from the top.

We finished our day by heading back to our hotel, just outside of the city, and found a great little restaurant called Pizza Caperone.

This is what you get when you order pizza with potatoes on top.

We all agreed that it was a delicious way to end the day.
