We left on the 8am train for a four hour trip. After being on a plane for close to 9 hours, this trip was a piece of cake. I got to finish 'The Lucky One', which I throughly enjoyed and highly recommend.

Our first night for dinner, my friends Meylin, Jen and I enjoyed a four course dinner for only 15 euro. A great bargain! And considering their lasagna was the best I've had on the trip so far, I would have paid 15 euro for the lasagna alone!
|Course #1- Lasagna|
|Course #3Baked chicken (didn't eat much...full from all that lasagna ;)|
|Course #4- Coffee|
The second day we walked around San Marco's square. It was very crowded and we quickly walked through the piazzo so we could avoid it as much as possible.
|Marinara pizza for lunch the next day (yep, no cheese just sauce, oregano and fresh garlic! So good. )|
|Dinner-My new favorite pasta gnocchi! So cheesy and good. I've got to try and make this at home when I get back|
|Drum roll please....tiramisu for dessert.|
|Clearly it wasn't very good at all ;)|
The shopping in Venice was to die for. So much jewelry from Murano, an island off of Venice that specializes in glass. I literally could have bought the whole store. Everything in there was beautiful!
The one thing we wanted to do was ride a Gondola, but by the time we decided to find one, we couldn't. Terrible luck, considering the two previous days we had turned down a bunch for rides. Oh well, just another excuse to come back to Venice :)
