[Assignment: Research places you want to go on our trip in two different cities. Write an essay to convince me we should go there. Include 5 pictures (I forgot to tell them to save URLs from pictures for attribution). Emma turned this in on April 17]
Venice is a magical place where gondolas ride the canals and lions line the streets. We should go to Venice because it would be a fun day trip while visiting in Bolongia. Here are three things to do on a day in Venice.
We could visit Murano and see glass being made. Watching the famous Venetian glass being made would be a treat. We might even get to try blowing some.
Also it would be fun to ride in Gondolas through the narrow alleyways. Or we could take a Vaporetto down the Grand Canal and look at the architecture as we go past.
All in all the lions, Canals, and Venetian glass make Venice a worthwhile place to visit. Also Venice is famous for its tiramisu.
We should go to Florence not just because of dome and the museums but because Florence was the birthplace of the Renaissance, the golden age, where art, architecture, thinkers, leaders, and scientists came together.
In Florence we can see the famous dome built by Brunelleschi. This amazing piece of architecture stands out on the skyline with its dome shaped roof.
There is a costume museum at Pitti Palace that holds 6000 costumes and garments. These costumes range from ancient to modern but all are amazing and beautiful.
We could also take a day trip to Vinci and see the Leonardo da Vinci museum or the birthplace of Leonardo. After learning about Leonardo and his time this is definitely a place we should visit.
Don’t forget, you can always end each day with the world famous Gelateria Vivoli’s which is known for Florence’s best gelato.
