This morning, after a wonderful breakfast at the hotel, we climbed into a boat for a trip out to the island of Murano, where the Venetian glass blowers have been exiled for the last few centuries, to avoid burning down the rest of the city. We watched as one of the local craftsmen made a vase and a horse, taking a few minutes each.
Next, we went back to Venice proper, for a tour of the Doge's Palace. The tour director was temporarily replaced by a local woman who knew the local history well, and had a fun slant on it.
