My Birthday in VENICE aka Venezia!! Part 3

After lunch we got to check out this instrument museum...

It was very small, but the instruments were very cool!

Check out this tower....

Did you know that Pisa is not the only leaning tower in Italy?
There are actually several towers that lean more than Pisa! I was shocked to find this out.
I dont know if you can tell from the picture, but this one leaned ALOT!

Then we went to St. Marks Square and...

We went into the Bascilica.
There are signs EVERYWHERE that say "No Photo's Inside", so.. I wasn't able to get any pictures of the inside of the Bascilica, but it was REALLY PRETTY!!

After that we checked out the Bridge of Sighs.
Right now it is under restoration/construction, but at least we got to see a glimpse of it!

Then we did an "authentic Walking tour of Venezia" =
We got lost!

 I think if you have to get lost somewhere, Venice is the place to do it!

We found Marzipan.
None of us had ever tried it before, so I bought some...

 Let me just say, it wasn't my cup of tea.
It tasted like stale "Circus Peanuts"! Yuck!

All day long we gave out crackers to the homeless and beggars! I think we got more out of it then they did!

Sam bought herself a really cute hat!

Then we had GELATO!!
And I had my very own authenic Italian Cannolo. Did you know that Cannoli is actually plural?? We have been saying it wrong this whole time!! Who knew?
Overall, it was a GREAT birthday. The only thing missing was DETTO!
