Today we expanded our minds by visiting the Peggy Guggenheim Collection which is a Modern Art Museum. It had some really weird stuff but I liked a few pieces. I liked artwork that used other materials not necessarily just paint and canvas. There was another cool one outside that used mirrors and two way mirrors which got a cool effect. We have some neat pictures from that piece. I also got to see the abstract painting that is in the Movie Mona Lisa Smiles. It was a good experience but I wouldn't go back... although modern art isn't really my thing so if you enjoy it check it out!
Then we did a little shopping on the bridge over the main canal which has lots of fun shops. In St. Marc's Square there are tons of pigeons, many more than trafalgar square.
We then went on our Venice Tour which involved a lot of quick stops seeing different buildings and parts of the city. The highlite of the tour was the gondola ride. 6 people go in each gondola so try to position yourself so you are going to be the first into the gondola so you can get the best seat in the back on the Heart shaped cusion.
Also when in Italy you should have Gelato at least 2 times a day if not 3. We did this regularly. Also go to smaller local places for Gelato not the larger touristy places with we speak english signs! The big places charge a lot more! This is true in all of Itlay!
