A Day in Venice

 

 

Three years ago I was a senior year and the school I went to organized a ten day trip to Italy during spring break. We visited Venice on the last day of that trip and it was a bit of a bad day for me. I was exhausted, it was really hot, very crowded and we were free to roam the streets…. without a map, so we got lost and spend the majority of our time searching our way back to the San Marco square. I have two pictures from my visit in 2010 and I felt so incredibly bad that I didn’t get to enjoy Venice more when I boarded the bus back home.

Imagine how excited I was when I Googled Bologna and found out there was a direct train line between the city and Venice. I may or may not have danced around the house. For ten minutes. K had never been to Venice and thus he was pretty excited to see what it was all about too! Off we went! There were HUGE lines at the museums and churches, so we decided to skip on them – again – and stroll around the narrow streets and just enjoy the sunny day. Much like last time, the streets were jam packed with people so we branched out and searched for more calm places. We enjoyed €1 espresso’s and yummy ice creams in the weirdest flavors. Venice truly is one of Italy’s most beautiful cities in my humble opinion. It’s always good to come here. Please enjoy the photos I made, they’re the last in my Italian series! K and I started looking for our next destination and are actually doubting Italy again, haha. Naples this time though, because we both haven’t been there yet ^.^

 

 

 

 

Wait… There’s more!

    I'm pleased for you that you had the chance to go again. The pictures are stunning. The architecture and pretty colours make it appear such an interesting place to visit

    What's crazy about Venice is that the touristy-streets are PACKED but every other place is all quiet and peaceful, it's like 99% of the visitors don't even bother walking through other parts of the city? Craaazy

    gorgeous photos, you have really captured the colours of Venice. I have a serious fear of pigeons so St Marks Square was a nightmare for me and kind of scared me from going back but this post is making me rethink that!

    I agree, Venice is a gorgeous city.

    Oh Venice… Wonderful, even if I don't understand how can people live there.
    I'm not a fan of Napels, I guess it's for the idea that we Italians have of the Neapolitans, but the place where the city is set is amazing. If you want to go to the beach, I would advise you the place where I live, la Rivera del Conero, but there's not much else to do here.

    oh boy, does this post ever take me back in time. the fabulous photography completely captures every essence of Venice's magic! i remember being almost dive-bombed by super agro pigeons in Piazza San Marco and then running to a nearby hotel patio for some salvation via a lovely cocktail. by the time we were done the square had completely flooded. supposedly happens all the time there, workers were all ready with man made boardwalks they put up so people could cross over above the water. incredibly awesome experience!!!

    i can see you've had the time of your life and look so beautiful while soaking it all in too! ♥

    Amazing photos. I wish I have a chance to visit Italy 🙂

    Ah, great to see you got the chance to go back 😀
    I went there for one day as well, on a holiday in Rimini, but I'm dying to go back and explore more!

    Hello from a new reader, and wow that's amazing! I'm glad you got to go back and correct a memory, also I think with that cheap of espresso I would go on overload. Anything coffee related and I'm in! I've always wanted to go to Italy and looking at your pictures even further solidifies that!

    Oooh Venetië, zal altijd een speciaal plekje in mijn hart hebben <3 ik ben 2 jaar geleden in September geweest en heb toen ook een heleboel eilandjes errond bezocht. Van toeristen (buiten op de giga-spottrekkers) toch niet zoveel gemerkt 🙂 echt leuke foto's! Nu heb ik zin om terug te gaan 😀

  25. 31 July 2013 / 21:10

    Ja, Venetië – schoon! Maar… ik ben er vorig jaar in 't hoogseizoen ook geweest en dan is het daar toch niet zo heel aangenaam wandelen met al die toeristen, vind je niet? Ooit wil ik er nog eens naartoe! Maar dan in november ofzo 🙂
