July 28 – Venice

 
Today we journeyed through the canals of Venice to Murano Island for a tour and demonstration at the famous Murano Glass factory, one of the last hand-blown glass factories left in Europe. This afternoon we returned to Venice and went on a walking tour to St. Mark’s Square, the center of the city, and also toured St. Mark’s Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs and the Clock Tower.
