A view of the Swiss Alps

For this trip, I took my mom to Venice!

This was the view from my hotel Violino D'Oro, it was absolutely breathtaking! In the mornings and afternoons, we were serenaded by the Gondoliers next door.

Our hotel was right next to the Piazza San Marco, in the designer shopping area and there were a few restaurants in walking distance. We did some sightseeing then ate dinner at Vino Vino. The food was good and moderately priced and the staff was extremely friendly.  

The next day we took the ferries over to explore Burano and Murano islands. Burano is popular for it's colorful beauty and lace while Murano is famous for glass blowing.



We walked around and did more sightseeing as well as a little souvenir shopping around the Piazza.

And although she's afraid of water (what a city to visit with that fear, right?), I was able to convince my mom to ride a gondola with me on the Grand Canal.

All in all Venice is a beautiful city and I would definitely give it another run. There wasn't much to see so I found that a short 3-day trip was more than enough to see everything and be satisfied.
