Even though it's off season, it was very busy!! It was neat to see the famous canals and the Venetian Gondolas. Luckily we managed to find a few quiet little back alleys and a reasonably quiet place to have lunch and coffee/tea. However, we were happy to get out of the crowds at the end of the day and back into the country and smaller towns and villages.

|While waiting for the train, a nearby church was just finishing its Sunday mass and |
we were able to go in and hear the organ being played. Impressive!
