Our days begin with a leisurely Venetian breakfast served in the lounge of our hotel overlooking the serene Grand Canal. There we watch as the city wrestles itself from slumber and traffic along the canal begins to swell. Just after breakfast, Professor Madden delivers a daily briefing in preparation for the sites we will explore later in the day. Following the talk, the group heads off to explore a part of the city which helps to reveal yet another chapter in the history of this once great Republic.
