Venice Day 2

On our second day in Venice, we got an early start over to the Biennale, which is a major contemporary art exhibition which takes place every two years. Art switches off with Architecture every other year. We went with the students and took in some modern art.

From there, we hopped on a vaporetto to the island of Murano. This is where they make Venetian glass and a lot of the glass blowers and glass factries are located here. We were able to see an exhibition of a glass blower at work.

And some pictures of the island of Murano:

From there, we headed back to the city for dinner and I was able to get some great shots of the grand canal at dusk:
