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 ^.^
