Venice

Venice. One of the most beautiful cities in the entire world. For those who wonder, Venice is a northeastern city in Italy that is sited on 117 small islands separated by canals and linked by 409 bridges. I have heard so many great things about this city and I was more than excited when I heard I would get the chance to visit it. I would never have thought that I would fell that deeply in love with a city and I think it is safe for me to say that, as for now, it is my favourite place on earth.

All these images are mine and were taken on my Canon camera.

Venice

When my family and I arrived in Venice by the Grand Canal, I was amazed by the beauty of the architecture and by the colours of the buildings. I felt as if I was walking straight in a film set as I couldn’t believe that all of this was real! If you are an art, architecture, culture or Europe lover, you will absolutely love your stay here. I really wanted to see the Piazza San Marco, the Grand Canal and the Doge’s Palace, as they are major cultural and historical sites. This city as itself is simply charming: the people are very nice, the streets are filled with activity and the coffee shops/small boutiques were lovely.

My favourite part of my visit was to walk through the small streets and on the bridges – and of course to stop right in the middle of the Grand Canal to admire the beauty of the heart of the city. You can have a glimpse of the essence of Venice on my pictures but they really don’t do it justice. Another aspect I really enjoyed was to see so many Venetian masks shops (as you may know, this city is very well known for the Carnival of Venice). You will be overwhelm by the amount of incredible and gorgeous masks they are selling in preparation for this huge event.

If you ever get the opportunity to see Venice, I highly suggest you to spend a few days to visit all the beautiful sites as well as talking walks in this city’s labyrinth (make sure to bring a map as it is very easy to get lost since they are so many streets!). I also have to warn you that everything is over-expensive. Make sure to have a budget, to bargain and to spend your money wisely – going to a public bathroom can cost you €2.50 in some places! My too-short trip in Venice was unforgettable and I can’t wait to go back and continue my visit here I left it.

    It looks so great! The only thing with Venice is you have to go when the weather is good otherwise it can be a bit depressing! I love Italy so much…

    πŸ™‚ Looks like you’re having a wonderful time Arielle πŸ™‚ Unbelievably when I went to Venice it actually flooded! πŸ˜› Piazza San Marco (St. Marks Square) was under water… a regular occurrence it seemed though as they were well prepared and tables promptly appeared for people to walk on! Enjoy! πŸ™‚ … ooo post some Italian food photos please! πŸ™‚

    Those photos are gorgeous. I went to Venice years ago though we were staying nearby and only went twice due to the poor weather at the time so I really want to go back and explore some more, next time hopefully when it’s sunny!
