Venice is one of the major tourist destinations in all of Europe. It is situated on a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges.
We began our visit by taking a vaporetto from the Venice airport to our hotel on the northwest island. Since the weather was good we toured the New Ghetto and its synagogues. Afterwards we took the hotel's shuttle boat to San Marco Square. Saturday we took a walking tour that included the Doges Palace. We visited the other three museums on San Marco Square the next day. And finally we took another walking tour to lesser known areas of Venice - in the rain.
