At 6:15 AM we started our sail in to Venice. As the sun rose, we started to see the outline of the city as we sailed up the Giudecca Canal to our berth in the Port of Venice. After docking at 8:15 AM our day started with an orientation boat ride which included views of St. Marks Square from the water. After our tour we walked out the pier to the people mover (Tram) which took us to Le Roma Vaporetto station (Water taxi). Here we took a Vaporetto down the Grand Canal ending at St. Marks Square. We proceeded to take a walk to the Rialto Bridge, passing many shops and canals along the way. The rest of the day was spent exploring the back streets and canals of Venice.
