Our week-long trip to Italy got its kick-off with Venezia. Since this was a package deal, accomodation and transportation was already taken care of.
We stayed in Jesolo Lido, it's a town with a coast to Adriatic Sea. It definitely seems like a slow-pace, holiday location.
The vaporetto ride - our means of transportation to Venice - takes about 30-40 min.
As we were first approaching Venice, I was truly amazed by its beauty. I mean, come on... We have been reading it in books, articles, have heard people going on and on about it, seen it gizzilion of times on film. I was convinced that this would yet be another disappointment - you know, when you see something with that much built-up anticipation for the first-time, the reality bursts its bubble... NO, that was not the case with Venezia. Simply beautiful :)
- Pros:The natural beauty, the architecture and the Murano glassworks ;-)
- Cons:OK, overcrowded with tourists. And full of traps to take your money!
- In a nutshell:Venice is absolutely breathtaking and it could be one of the most romantic places, despite the crowd.
This is an average bar that seems to be frequented by tourists and locals. It had a friendly atmosphere. No dress code. more travel advice
We've been to a couple of bigger stores - and you'd notice that quality of the craft they have is almost the same... more travel advice
