Three days in Venice

We recently took a three day trip to Venice in Italy. We spent one of the days in Burano but I still feel two days was enough to see a lot of Venice, we ended up walking a lot more than we had planned to because the tourist spots are not that far apart. We stayed in San Marco so it was really close to a lot of the tourist things we wanted to do and only a short walk from Rialto Bridge and the Grand Canal, so I really recommend staying close to their! The Columbia Hotel was beautiful and I would definitely stay there again.
We didn't really have a schedule of things we wanted to see and when but I knew I wanted to visit the San Marco square, the Grand Canal and the Rialto bridge...
Rialto Bridge
Rialto Bridge is the oldest bridge on the Grand Canal and one of the famous picture taking spots in Venice. Its a really lovely place to get some amazing views of the Grand Canal. You will see this bridge if you take a Grand Canal Tour. 
Boat taxi to San Marco!
Saint Mark's Basilica
Saint Mark's Basilica is one of the most popular tourist stops in Venice as you will see by the amount of tourists that gather around it! The architecture is beautiful and you can visit inside for free.
Piazza San Marco 
The Grand Canal
The Grand Canal has beautiful views which can be seen by walking by or getting a boat taxi across it. 
Rialto Bridge at night is just as beautiful!
