The Gondola ride ended in front of the Hard Rock Cafe, so I went in and bought a pin from Venice to go with my collection from Athens and Prague.
The next stop on the tour was a visit to the Murano Glass factory for a glass blowing demonstration and a shopping experience. The glass blowing was fascinating and the shopping was an experience. The finished products were beautiful, expensive and something that I didn't need. However, I did buy a Christmas bulb for 30 euros. I figured I can hang it on the Christmas tree once a year.
