    Am plecat de la punctul de plecare la 11.15. Am primit fiecare membru al familiei câte o harta cu traseul și câte o pereche de căști. Se pot asculta informațiile în limba engleza, germana, franceza, italiana, spaniola, croata, rusă și încă vreo 3 dar nu mai știu care. În romana nu era asa ca am ascultat în italiana, fiică-mea în engleza. Pentru ca am ascultat în alta limba mi s-a părut ca vorbea cam repede, deși cred ca era normal totuși. Cu aceasta experienta am vizitat destul de multe locuri. Puteam sa ne dam jos în punctele esențiale dar noi nu am făcut-o, a fost suficient de văzut din microbuz. Multe locuri importante precum Catedrala și Biserica Sf Mark sunt în renovare și nu se pot vizita în interior. Turul a durat cam 1 ora.
