boat to burano

We began our second day of Venice with a 'secret itineraries' tour of the Palazzo Ducale, which granted us entry to Casanova's cell, although we weren't quite prepared for how cold it would be!

We warmed up by treating ourselves to tea at Caffe Florian, which came on a silver tray with a vast array of crested chinaware, served by a waiter dressed in a bow tie and white jacket...

After a bit more wandering around the maze of streets and alleys, we decided to make the most of the sunshine and take a boat to the colourful island of Burano.

We then came back for a fabulous dinner overlooking the Grand Canal at night, and walked back through a wonderfully romantic St. Mark's Square, wishing we could stay forever...
