Or last day in Venice – sigh. After breakfast we caught the vaporetto to the Rialto Bridge and spent some time wandering around the fish market. We then walked through the Canareggio sestiere to reach Fondamente Novo where we hopped on another vaporetto to Burano.
We spent an hour or so wandering around the little shops and taking photos of the gorgeous houses. We were so lucky, it was a pretty, sunny day, which showed the colours to perfection.
We finally ended up at Da Romano, where we had to try their delicious fish risotto, which was superb.
After lunch we caught another vaporetto back and this time got off at Murano. We wandered around a little and then went to watch a glass blowing demonstration, which was fascinating. We purchased a few glass trinkets before finally catching another vaporetto back to Fondamente Novo.
We then did a lengthy walk back through Canareggio into San Marco, where we dropped off our purchases at the hotel before a sunset ride in a gondola that we picked up outside the Danieli. We weren't going to do this, but we decided finally that we didn't want to leave Venice without doing

it. We absolutely loved our ride, and are so pleased that we did it. We were lucky enough to get a gondolier who spoke perfect English. He took is into all the little canals and explained many of the buildings to us. It was peaceful and romantic and thoroughly enjoyable.
We had previously made a reservation for a seafood restaurant back over at Fondamente Novo, but really couldn't be bothered going back there. We ended up having dinner at a little trattoria named Da Roberto, just a five minute walk from our hotel in one of the little calles behind Piazza San Marco. We had a Pork Cordon Bleu, which was pleasant but nothing really special like our other meals here had been. We ended our final evening by trying coffee and liqueurs at Caffe Florian back in the Piazza. We didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as at Caffee Lavena, so we headed back there for one last drink before bed.
