The boat ride into Venice, Italy. Matt and Ali's groups touring about together. Venice was a whirlwind for the kids...they packed more into that one day than you can imagine. Both Mark and Matthew really loved Venice. The boat trip "into town" was "unbelievably magical and wonderful," the sun making everything glitter as they entered the Grand Canal and docked at St. Mark's Square where they met their guide who led them on a tour for about an hour.
