Yesterday was absolutely amazing! The canals, the bridges, the people, all beautiful. We got a tour from a local Venezian, and she told us all about her sinking city. It sinks 5 inches every 100 years, and although that doesn’t seem like a lot, Venice has been around since the 9th century after Christ.
Free time in Venice was very fun! There were hundreds of shops and vendors in between alleyways and corners. The Rialto bridge is the most popular in Venice, and I got to cross it.
Later that evening we got to go wine tasting, and to enjoy a family owned ristorante. In Italy, they believe in getting the full wine experience, so you get 5 full glasses of wine. My favorite was the Rosa, and the Pasta was of course delicious. The family owned winery sang opera to us at dinner, We enjoyed good food, good company, and of course good wine.
