Ah, Venice – the jewel of the Mediterranean! I am not sure there was anyone who counted the number of photos taken and published online after a trip to one of Italy’s most renowned cities. Or the number of romantic poems recited and the proposal made on beautiful bridges, for that matter.
It doesn’t matter how many times I visit Venice. It always feels as if it is the first time. And believe me, this time it took us an unusually long time to get there – almost eight hours by bus. The highways were simply packed with traffic and it was impossible to count the number of traffic jams we’ve got ourselves stuck into.
Nevertheless, it was more than worthy. I’ve got so taste again that think piece of pizza pie from a joint right next to the Rialto Bridge. I’ve walked to hours in small alleys and next to tiny channels. I took the Vaporetto around and within Venice. It was simply magical. Again.
Too bad we did not have time for museums. I certainly would like to show my beloved on more than the interior of San Marco. We have left for next time the Doge’s Palace, Gallerie dell’Accademia, Murano, the Bridge of Sighs, Teatro La Fenice, Museo Correr, and many others. I think we will need a week for all we have planned. Just maybe, we should go during the winter. The summer offers just too many tourists.
If you haven’t been to Venice yet, start making plans! The city has something offer to everyone. It is not necessary for you to be in love or something like that. But it sure is a joy for sore eyes.
Naturally, I took some photos. I hope you like them. Enjoy and don’t forget to let me know what you think in the comments section below!
