We walked to St. Mark's and saw the square and the basilica right after sunrise, which was pretty cool. Afterwards, because it was already open, we went in and saw the Palazzo Ducale, where the Doges of Venice used to live.
The rest of the day we walked around and hung out, then went out and saw some of the town at night. Saturday the guys and I went to Burano, an island farther to the North in the bay. I saw it on an episode of Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations on the Travel Channel. Bourdain went to a restaurant there and had amazing risotto. So we took one of the water lines to the island and checked it out. The island was pretty and quaint, and we were able to find the restaurant, so we had lunch there. The food was a little more expensive than we usually pay, but it was amazing.
Saturday afternoon was crazy. The streets were full of people, and it turned into a huge party, complete with live music in St. Mark's square.
