Day 4: Lido, Venice and Burano

We were in and out of boats all day. From our hotel in Lido, we visited one of the islands to learn about glass making, returning to St. Mark’s square for a walking tour and introduction to Venetian history, art and culture, including a tour of St. Mark’s Cathedral, with its 86,000 sf of glass tile mosaics. We toasted Venice with traditional drink of spritz and enjoyed the city for a few hours. We returned to Lido for some down time. I took a swim in the Adriatic, as the beach was just a few blocks from our hotel. We took another boat to Burano, the most colorful of the Venetian islands for dinner.
