Getting lost on the canals of Venice, Italy

Sunday, October 15, 2017

I love Italy! But this is coming from a girl who's favorite food is pizza (besides french fries, but that's a different story).
If you have a romantic weekend getaway in mind, Venice would definitely be the right choice.
If being in the land of pizza, pasta, gelato and Aperol spritz is not enough, just add some lovely buildings, narrow and quiet canals, gondolas and one of the most romantic vibe ever.

For sure you cannot leave Venice without visiting the San Marco square, Rialto bridge or the Grand Canal, but I felt that the true charm of Venice was not given by these famous overcrowded landmarks, but by just getting lost through its narrow streets and canals.

This was a lovely sculpture made for the Art Biennale, with this occasion the whole city was filled with little art installations. 

While in Venice I would recommend you dedicate a half day or maybe a full one to visit the lovely islands of Murano and Burano.
Visiting Burano was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Venice! If you have not yet read our post about Burano you can check it out here.

Keeping it short as all this talk about pizza just reminded me that I have a frozen one in the freezer and a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do!
