We went to Venice with a 4 hour train ride. Once we got to Venice, we had a quick sandwich at a place called Brek. We also bought our ticket on the night train for Salzburg the following day. We left Venice at 9 PM the next day and get in to Salzburg at 4 AM (yuck).
After buying our ticket, we hopped on a Vapretto to go to St.
We checked into our hotel and had a brief nap. Then we went back out to explore Venice and find the TI. We went around St. Mark's square and the Rialto bridge. We also ended up buying groceries and snacks and taking them back to our hotel. They had some very tasty treats in the store especially the Ritter sport chocolate wafer bars. We were coming very close to spoiling our supper.
We decided to have supper at a restaurant called La Mascareta. This restaurant was highly recommend on Trip Advisor. We were greeted by the host and we asked about the specials and he basically made our order for us. The first dish was mussels, clams and some other kind of shell fish. It was very tasty. Flo ordered wine and the host found Flo a sweet wine that she really enjoyed. My second dish was spaghetti with cuttlefish. Flo had spaghetti with baby clams. We both found it very tasty and filling, so we didn't have dessert.
We walked around Venice at night. It was very nice to walk around places in Venice with no one else around. We walked around the St. Marks Square and we walked to the Accademia bridge. It was a very nice night in Venice.
