I guess Venice needs no introduction, for who hasn't heard all about this Italian city built on water, with its hundreds of bridges, canals and gondolas? But no matter how many pictures I'd seen, or how much stories I'd heard, nothing could prepare me for the kind of beauty that was waiting for me in Venice - it was love at first sight! The minute I stepped out of the bus and took my first look at the colourful buildings surrounded by water, it gave me the impression I was walking around a movie set because it all seemed too perfectly beautiful to be true!
We spent a little over five days in Venice and instead of getting used to its special kind of beauty, the feeling only increased as we ventured further and further into the city, moving away from Piazza San Marco to discover those quiet, almost deserted streets. Many people will tell you that Venice is small and that you only need 2-3 days to visit the city, but in my case, I wish we could have spent even more time there because it truly is the kind of place you want to get lost into. I've no idea if my little travel page will do the city any kind of justice but in any case, my advice if you haven't already been there would be not to take my word for it - go and see for yourself, you won't regret it!
