Gondola ride on the Grand Canal
Patty Dorsey Murphy
We took a tour of Venice in the morning. Went all thru St. Marcos with a tour guide. Saw a glass display. Sat on St Mark's Square for lunch. Drove thru Appinnes Mts. Ate lunch in Bologna...on to Florence and the Auto Park Hotel. Quiet evening ...in room early. Tomorrow we tour Florence and off to Rome.

Place: Venice & Florence (Auto Park Hotel)
Weather: nice & sunny
Left Venice early and rough night as took pill for constipation and spent the night in bathroom. Stopped in Bologna, Italy for lunch and went on to Florence. It is nice here and suppose to tour tomorrow. I feel better today. Italian people are not as friendly here as other parts of Europe.
Before leaving Venice, went to St. Mark’s Square and it was so beautiful - pigeons everywhere. The church was so old and great. The Parliament House with all the court rooms & jail & “Bridge of Sighs” recalled so much history. All of this surrounded by water. It was lovely.
The Hotel in Florence was nice
In front of Doge's are Patty, Nell, Lamar and Dianne. We toured most of the roms in Doge and were impressed with court rooms, ballroom and the many statures and wall paintings.
