A good one day trip .

We took the train and then spent the day shopping, having a gondola ride and having lunch. Everything went well and I appreciated having the vouchers printed out ahead of time. Many tourists but not overwhelmed. A good trip.

Poorly planned. The train schedule was terrible and unclear. I had to pay an extra 10 euros. Italians aren’t friendly people.
