|I could have sat and watched the gondolas all day!|
|Last views of what the prisoners saw of Venice from the Bridge of Sighs.|
|It was neat watching all of the cruise ships boat in and drop off tons of tourists.|

We headed back to the hotel for a little rest once it started raining and after that we went on a private gondola ride of Venice. I wanted to pick a gondolier who would talk to us and thankfully the guy we got was pretty friendly and spoke pretty good English. He showed us around the city and told us that every 6 hours the waters change in Venice. It was really special being able to spend that time with Chris. I’ll never forget it and I think that was my favorite part of our time in Venice. After our gondola ride we got some dinner and of course had more gelato for dessert!
