Our youngest daughter loved Venice. I think it was because of the masks and the window shopping. Venice is magic, and is a wonder to experience, especially the first time you set foot in its maze. The walk from our hotel to St. Marks Square was only 10 minutes (if you could do it without getting lost). For our last weekend in Italy, Venice was an ideal setting. Dinners under awnings, visions of masquerades, and music in the streets will be scenes with us always.
