Our trip to Venice was quite a spontaneous decision. Originally, we were planning to go to Rome, but somehow, we went to this beautiful city on water instead.
We took it in a romantic way and went by train. The journey was fine, only the early getting up was a little bit tough. However, all the tiredness flew away when we arrived in Santa Lucia and saw all the beauty.
We left our things in the hotel room and hurried up to see the center. Actually, it is hard to say what is center. Venice is not a large city, and even if you feel lost for a while in some distant street, right around the corner you will encounter a crowd of tourists.
The city is beautiful and unique. There is no other place like Venice. The architecture, the light, the canals. I just loved every single part of it.
The best thing you can do is to explore the city on your own, get lost in the tiny streets, eat cannoli whenever possible and take as many espresso shots as you want.
We also took this vaporetto ride to see the Grand Canal and it was a nice experience with the sunset falling upon us.
Venice is nice not only from outside, it has also many hidden treasures. As we knew that it was going to rain the last two days of our stay, we left the museum visits at the end.
Peggy Guggenheim is definitely a must-see. This musem of fine arts offers the personal collection of Peggy Guggenheim including works by Pollock, Picasso, Dalí, Mondrian and many others.
The last day we saw the Doge`s Palace – Palazzo Ducale, Archeological Museum, Correr Museum and Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, all situated at the St. Mark´s Square.
Venice is definitely worth of visiting!
