Venice, Murano & Burano

* I have so many comments to respond to and blogs to catch up on. I promise I will be back to normal here soon!

For our trip, we stayed the first week in the Montegratto Treme area, which is mainly known for its medicinal spas and baths. It is also the perfect location to explore, as it is about a 15 minute train ride to Padua and a half hour to Venice. So it was easy to get wherever we wanted to go before we ended up getting our rental car towards the end of the week.

Venice is pretty spectacular, but it was a little too crowded for my taste. I think had we gone a little later in September, I would have enjoyed it a little bit more. But it was still fantastic and so beautiful. And you must just go and get lost, discovering the small alleyways and buildings was the best part! and defintely do a water taxi, you can buy an all day pass for pretty cheap!

 On our second day there we ended up heading over to the two smaller islands of Murano and Burano.

Murano is most known for being the glass blowing capital of the world and it was fun to see so many of the intricate designs they make there! Burano is most known for its lace and also for being one of the most colorful islands in the world.

Basically all of the recaps will just be major photo dumps! I hope you enjoy! If you have questions about a specific photo, ask away!
