Friday July 9, 2004, 20 km (12 miles) – Total so far: 859 km (534 miles)
Today was the penultimate day of our holiday. Again we cycled the length of Cavallino to Treporti and caught the waterbus to Venice. The day was spent wandering the streets of what has to be the most beautiful city in Europe. We enjoyed a good lunch in the vine-covered courtyard garden of Venetian restaurant, I ordered the local delicacy of liver and onions, it was delicious.
We visited a few churches and galleries, and saw an exhibition of the mechanical devices designed by Leonardo di Vinci, including schematics and models of the devices he designed.
