Adventures in Venice!

Yesterday after a spectacular road trip from Salzburg, Austria, through the Alps, and into Italy we finally arrived at our first destination for our Art History tour- Venice! That evening we meandered by means of a splendid boat ride through the Grand Canal to St. Marco's Square. Afterward we were treated to an authentic taste of Italy at a restaurant just minutes from our hotel.

Tuesday morning we made our way back to the heart of the city where some of the students, as part of an assignment, gave presentations on some of Venice's most prized cultural and historical gems; St. Marco's Basilica, The Doge's Palace and Frari Chruch. The students had a bit of fun on their own with some free time after the main sites had been visited, complete with souvenirs and gelato. Because what's a trip to Venice without Gelato?! Hittin' the road to Florence tomorrow!
