The Europe trip was coming to an end as this was the last day of the trip but don't get sad as we saved the desert for the last😊.
This day was for Venice. Yes the city that floats on water.
Venice is 1.5 hrs from Padova, one can take taxi to the ferry point and then from there a ferry will take you to Venice, the ferry ride is amazing in itself.
The city needs no introduction as I am sure you must have seen James Bond Casino Royal, Johnny Depp and Angelina's The Tourist or a number of movies shot there.
It was exactly what I expected it to be and much more.
We arrived at the port, it was near the palace, Venice square, the place with the tall clock tower and a church.
Venice is a complete city with its own residents, hotels, airbnb, market with one of the most luxurious brands one can imagine. Likes of multi millionaires, celebrities and billionaires own flats and building there.
The Royal palace and the Prison next to it that was connected with a bridge.
The palace was re constructed where they made it bigger engulfing the previous structure, it does retain the original walls at the ground floor.
World famous Murano Glass factory,
Murano Glass is the most expensive glass in the world, usually generation after generation work there, craftsmen usually have experience ranging from 10-30 years.
They also make artwork with fusion of gold amd glass, which is very rare and by the sound of it very experience.
We had the opportunity to get a tour of the factory where the have a presentation in which a Master craftsmen creates a Ferrari horse, vase etc in a matter of minutes, its like watching art happen right in front of your eyes.
Since we were in Venice we had to go for Gondola i.e the boat taxi that gives us a small tour of the canal and the bridge that crossover.
We had our lunch in the city next to the port with light cool wind blowing on our face and water on the other side. Then left for Padova for dinner and to rest for the journey back to home.
