We dropped some of them at Lido Island, known as the golden island of Venice. It is a barrier 7 miles long separating the Adriatic see from the lagoon. Its upscale hotels, and sandy beaches have been a favored destination since early in the 1800s. Upscale resorts world wide, and decks of many cruise ships have been named for this island.

After stopping at Lido Island we passed by this very famous landmark, the Palazzo Ducale and the Campanile di San Marco. This complex marks the opening of the Grand Canal.
