After 5 days in Rome, we took a 4 hour train ride to Venice. Well, not exactly Venice. Our hotel was 'outside' of Venice in a tiny town called Mirano. Small towns have a charm of their own, but I was anxious to get to the Venice Film Festival, ride on a gondola, see the glass-blowing in Murano and stand where Audrey Hepburn filmed "Funny Face" in San Marco.No easy task..1 hour on a bus to the ferry and another hour on the ferry to Lido Island. Then a 30 minute walk to the Festival. All worth it, I assure you! Come and take a look at my Venice Diaries!
