Venice Weekend: St Mark's Square, an arriving cruise ship, and a bridge (or two) too far

Oct 20, 2013, 09:06 AM, Venezia-Murano-Burano, Venice, Italy

After a pretty late night, and a good number of glasses of wine, we surprised ourselves by managing to get out bright and early at 8:30 to meet our guide for a tour of Venecian back streets. All would have been fine had we, after enjoying an empty St Mark's Square, concentrated on finding our meeting point rather than gazing at a passing cruise ship, resulting in a pretty significant detour. #ven13 #StMark #square #lagoon #cruise #arrive #bridge #walk #Venice #fb
