The ferry system is like their metro. You can see the vaporetto (water bus) station just to the left of the church.

Took a short day trip to nearby Burano!

Extra long and skinny ferry

Beautiful! Venice is one of the few famous places in Europe I haven't been to yet.

You should definitely check it out! One of the most unique cities in the world. Despite the crowds, there are tons of small side streets and alleyways that are quiet and serene.

Wow where did all the crowds go?

They were there, mostly in the areas around Piazza San Marco and Palazzo Ducale, as well as Ponte di Rialto. But there were certainly plenty of areas where you could easily walk a little further and find some reprieve from the crowds.

Next stop, Tuscany & Umbria!

Thanks for the bonus look at Burano, I did not see it when I visited Venezia many years ago.
