Venice leaves me speechless, I am always in complete awe every time I visit this place. It’s romantic, unique, lovely, beautiful and enigmatic. Just by being in Venice itself will leave you breathless.
The city triggers all your senses – your smell as you inhale the Venetian air with a hint of a pizza dough from a nearby pizzeria, your sight as you bask in the beauty of the architecture that surrounds you…
…your hearing as you listen to the sounds of the birds chirping in St. Mark’s square or the splash of water as a gondola passes by or a violin playing a distinct Italian song from a nearby restaurant.
The food will also tickle your taste buds, everything that I have ever eaten in Venice (well actually in the whole of Italy) is absolutely delicious.
Venice is one of my favorite Italian cities as it has a lot to offer. In every corner, every turn and every step that you make – a beautiful scenery will be right in front of you. It may be a centuries-old building, a beautiful antique door, a bridge, a canal, a church, a campo, a palace – it’s never ending. My favorite place is of course the St. Mark’s Square – playing with the pigeons or just sitting in one of the restaurants at the square and observing the life around me are some of my favorite ways to pass time while in Venice. Of course, taking photos as well. 🙂
Second favorite place will be the Rialto bridge where I spent a good hour just watching the gondolas beneath me pass by the last time I was there.
I normally don’t like going back to a place where I’ve already been but Venice is a totally different story. I’d grab every opportunity I will have to experience the romance once again of this city.
