Of all our time in Venice, the day of island-hopping was definitely my favorite. We took the water taxi out to Murano first. Murano was definitely cute....but ultimately, it's really just a less-crowded version of Venice. We hopped from Murano over to Torcello next. There is NOTHING on Torcello except this old church which is fabulous and old and scenic, but that's it.
Venice was also another great hostel town. Not in terms of the quality of accomodation, but the people we met. The hotel had this great little outdoor patio on the second floor where all the other backpacker kids tended to gather each night to drink and play cards and drink and joke around and drink. Cheap Wine. :) We met some really fun people from all over...Canada, Germany, Norway, Australia...even Minnesota! I know, right!?
We were having such a good time hanging out in Venice that I didn't want to leave, but eventually we had to. Onward....
