Venice is absolutely beautiful!! We drove there from Florence — about a two hour drive.
The water level rises about a centimeter every year in the famous canal-filled Italian city. So when it is high tide, you have to be careful of the steps because they are all covered in water!
We spent the day walking around then had an amazing dinner on the water.
Oh, this is funny: Look at the picture with all of us standing with the beautiful
background. You will notice that I am wearing socks with hideous sandals! That’s because my luggage got lost and I had nothing to wear!
My family and Reggie were
making fun of me all day! Ha ha!
Here are five awesome things to do if you ever find yourself in Venice:
Visit the Basilica di San Marco (a post on my visit to the square there is coming soon!)
Take a gondola ride, of course! I recommend the Grand Canal — that’s like the city’s main street.
Get a room with a kitchen and cook a fresh catch from the fish market.
Take a lift up to the top of the basilica’s tall campanile.
The best window shopping is on the wide street, Calle Larga XXII Marzo.
