Wait a minute. A chance to visit the iconic city of love? Venice is one of those places to visit at least once in a lifetime!
Before you go to Venice, you absolutely must watch movie “The Tourist” 2010 American romantic triller staring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. The story is unveiling in Venice with the utmost luxury hotel The Danieli as the centrepiece where the room cost from €600 till €9000 for Doge Dandolo Royal Suite. You can always have a cold refreshments in the lobby bar even when not staying in the hotel. Enjoy 🥂chin-chin
And now the Venice how I see it: unique, with character and charming.
I always keep thinking how on earth they buy and move furniture? The grocery shopping without a car?! There are two options how to move around: walking or by boat.
Not many parks and green places there and although on the water- there is nowhere to swim.
The weather catastrophies can be rather dramatic- from floods till dried out canals – what disaster and smell that brings- the whole city must be paralysed.
The spectacular centrepiece of Venice, St Mark’s Square, now floods more than 60 times a year.
Anyway- pack your suitcase and go, just out of the tourist season please as it’s truly crowded (20 mil tourists annually). The municipality even are putting up the crowd control barriers.
However if you step aside to the smaller streets- you can enjoy some quiet time and who knows- maybe even paddling.
With limited time here, and eyes already set on the next stop, it is more than important to make it count. A few classics of Venice should do the trick!
Head to the pulsing heart of the floating city, the St. Mark’s Square and marvel at stunning scenery all around you alongside buzzing tourists and children chasing pigeons. Hosting iconic and most beautiful landmarks such as St Mark’s Basilica and many more, it is a place impossible to miss in Venice.
The second trick is, of course, a soothing sail through the famous Grand Canal. Whether it’s a classic Venetian Gondolas, water bus or taxis, discover charming buildings from the 13th century to the 18th as it is one of the best ways to admire and explore Venice. You can take the waterbuss for €8 for one journey or ~€20 for a day ticket. Enjoy!!!
With love 💕 from Venice
