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.

Unfortunately, when I went to Venice with my cousins from Milan last August 2016, I wasn’t really impressed. The waters are dirty green and too much commercialization which makes everything horrendously expensive and crowded. Perhaps I need a second visit in a less touristy month and see if my views will change… with these covid cases around the world I am not sure anymore if we can travel like before. So sad. Keep safe!
i have a love/hate relationship with venice. The last time i was there, I was alone and it was raining. i walked a lot, got lost in beautiful alleys, took a lot of selfies… didn’t ride the gondola coz it was expensive… i felt lonely though coz venice is suppose to be romantic… but ill definitely go back with frank. just to see if ill enjoy it more with him. I did enjoy doges palace though. i am a museum freak.
I’ve never been there, but my sister was there a couple of years ago. She visited the city in the beginning of August, and it was so hot, she didn’t do anything else than eat gelato and drink Peroni:)
The first time I was there was July, scorching hot and then the second time was November – freaking cold. Lol. Nevertheless, I loved it both times. :p
awww, I love Venice too. Great pics – the one with the pizza is funny! 🙂
That’s one big slice of pizza, yes? :p
