Venice, Italy

 Nate and I went to Venice this week (by ourselves)!!!!
This was taken right outside our hotel!  Our hotel was in a perfect location.
On our first day, we wandered the city and took a gondola ride.
 We went through small canals and down the Grand Canal.

The Rialto Bridge.
Nate LOVED St. Mark's Square!
We took a tour of the Doge's Palace.  It was a really good tour.  We were able to go into the prisons and the bridge of Sighs.  We actually stood in Casanova's jail cell.
 On Thursday, we rented a car and drove to Verona.  The weather was amazing.  We walked around the city and went into their colosseum.  
We took a walk and stopped by to see "Juliet's balcony."  
We also went to Nove for some Italian pottery.  
This particular store sells to William's Sonoma and Tiffanys.  
I bought a few fun pieces.
On Friday, we had a late flight so we took a water taxi over to Murano.  
We stopped in a few shops to look at Murano glass.  
This trip was such a great break!!   We couldn't have had a better time!
