4 Things I Loved About Venice

There is countless things I loved about Venice. It always seemed like one of those places that would forever be out of my reach. When Aaron and I decided to book our Italy trip we originally only had one day here and I’m so glad we changed it to two! Everything was breathtaking and it really was like a storybook place.

Here are four things I loved about Venice!

I Loved The Canals

This is a given for anyone who visits Venice but how could I not mention how beautiful the canals were? Everywhere you went was so photogenic and colourful – it made my heart swoon. I always feel like we miss out in Canada because we’re such a new country that we don’t have anything of this historic beauty to marvel at. But I guess that’s why plane tickets are my addiction. One of my favourite things Aaron and I did was grab fresh bread from the market and had a bottle of wine sitting along the canal watching the gondolas drift by. I have exactly how we spend a perfect day in Venice here!

I Loved The Narrow Streets

I don’t know what I expected when I got to Venice but I did not expect there to be so many tiny streets. And then there were streets where you had to duck under a wall/gap to get to another streets. Some streets your shoulders were almost touching the walls and then some streets wound round and round until you hit a dead end in a maze of brick walls. If it wasn’t for Google Maps I think Aaron and I would still be lost somewhere in that maze. But it was so cool! There’s no other appropriate word. I’ve never experienced anything like it.

There’s something about being in the middle of two towering walls, squeezing through, trying to get to a bridge that connects you to more towering walls that eventually leads to a beautiful mossy covered courtyard that makes you believe you’re in some story book. add my Instagram for more photos!

I Loved The History

One of the greatest things, besides food, about Italy is the history. No matter where you go it’s like you’re transported back in time which is one of the reasons I loved Venice so much. We made it to the Bridge of Sighs and learned that it was called that because that was the passage between the courthouse and the jail that the prisoners walked through once finished their trial. Who knew such a beautiful bridge had such a somber story? Also did you know Venice is 1500 years old? How insane is that?

I Loved How Easy It Was

 

It was so easy to fall in love with Venice. I know I say this a lot but it was like being in a story. The canals, the cobble streets, the food, the wine, the gondolas, the experience, the architecture.. Everything was so beautiful. All you had to do was walk around and let Venice take you. I got lost a few times and I didn’t care because everywhere you went had something to offer. So let the city engulf you and enjoy one of the few cities that’s so easy to be apart of. There’s aren’t many places like it and it’s something that should be appreciated.
