VENICE-CANAL ALLEY was captured during our two day visit to Venice, Italy. First, I want to say, it was not dirty and second, it did not smell. I heard so many negative comments about Venice, I did not want to spend to many nights there. To our regret, we listened to other travelers, only stayed two days and now regret it. When we travel, we like to explore on our own. We went on a boat trip, visiting Murano and Burano. Murano is known for their blown glass, and the pieces we saw were amazing and totally out of our price range. Burano is a quaint fishing town. It is very low key, a nice place to stroll, see a beautiful sunset and enjoy the colorful houses.
