Venice

From Barcelona, we caught a flight to Venice for the first of five stops in Italy.  Homebase was a town about 20 minutes outside of Venice called Mestre.  The town, unlike our hotel room, was very nice, and I was glad to be staying outside of the main attraction.  As for Venice itself, I had mixed feelings.  It was, no doubt, an incredible sight to see.  I have never seen anything like it and was pretty in awe upon entering.  Unfortunately,  it also lived up to its reputation as being overrun by tourism, and that aspect of it grew tiresome very quickly.  1.5 days was just about the perfect amount of time to make the most of the place, and to move on to the next destination.
