We have  nights in Venice...
On the first night we plan to have dinner and just stroll around to explore.
2nd day we plan on seeing San Marco early, maybe touring the Doge's palace late morning... spending the afternoon touring Bacaro's and getting lost... then having dinner around 8:00pm.
We would like to take a Gondola ride at some point the 2nd day before dinner.
Where is the best place to take a Gondola ride?
What time is best?
