Travel Thursdays! Venice, Italy Edition

13 Oct

Ohhh Italy… You hear about it from everyone who has experienced it but yet it’s never the same as when you experience it for yourself.  Strolling through the cobble stone streets is even more enchanting when you have not a worry in the world but to enjoy your travels.  I love how you either walk or take a boat taxi everywhere in Venice.  The food and desserts are also a huge reason to see the sights of Venice.  This is coming from a person though that could be won over by a single slice of delectable pizza… Here are some photos of what I enjoyed when in Venice.

The infamous Rialto Bridge.

View from a gondola.

Corridors.

No handicap access anywhere, just an FYI.  I like the symmetry of these stairs though.  We hiked them with our luggage which is always entertaining!

YUM!

Casanova’s home.

Our Gondolier.

Water taxis.

By St. Mark’s Plaza.

Birds!

Prison across the water.

I loved all the beautiful glass work at the shops and the cheap jewelry.  You can’t go to Venice and not take home a keepsake.  It’s a beautiful place that should be a bucket lister.  I’d love to go back and hopefully will in the future 🙂

    Hello. You have some beautiful pictures. They really capture the city. What fun. We went on a Med cruise and Venice was one of our destinations. We loved Venice. Before the ship left we were trying to find St Mark’s but got caught in a maze of narrow alley’s and an old Italian woman was kind enough to point us in the right direction. We would love to go back to Italy some day. Love your blog.

      Thank you! Wow a Med. cruise… sounds like heaven! I think I should look into that 🙂 It is easy to get caught up in those narrow Venice streets, they all start looking the same after a while.
