Good Morning World!
I don’t think anyone can turn down a good holiday, especially to one of the most beautiful cities in the world. So when mum suggested a weekend break to Venice, I’d be silly to turn it down.
To add a bit of humour to your lives, this trip was suppose to be a 21st birthday present but we went in June and I’m still 20! So when mum was telling everyone it was my birthday the whole trip and singing to me, I was a little confused.
We arrived in this beautiful city on the Thursday evening, and with no time to waste we went exploring, and of course found a bar. We saw the Rialto Bridge, and just had a general wonder around the narrow streets and bridges. Relaxed after a long day of travelling and treated ourselves to some authentic Italian food.
After our culture filled morning we had lunch along one of the small canals, followed by a gondola ride around the back streets. I would recommend taking a gondola around the back streets as opposed to the main canal, as one their cheaper and two, you get to see more of the culture. We then ended the day with cocktails on a rooftop bar before heading out for dinner and drinks again.
As we’d had our action filled tourist day we decided to end our weekend break by using the final day to take our time to observe and appreciate this beautiful city. We had breakfast along the grand canal, and a leisurely stroll around the back streets before heading back to the apartment to get ready for our flight.
I don’t think this post has done this gorgeous city justice. From the architecture to the food, I have fallen in love with Venice. To anyone asking whether it’s worth going, I would say Yes! I don’t believe you need anymore than a couple of days in this city before you’ve exhausted the sights, but if you plan your trip well Venice definitely has a lot to offer. There are many more day trips to neighbouring islands so if you go for longer don’t be afraid you won’t fill your diaries.
All my love,
