Hello Everyone,

Here’s another fascinating wanderlust post on her Venice travel experience from our beautiful reader Vidya. Now Vidya is a journalist and knows here words better than most of us – I din’t have to edit anything at all, everything was so wonderfully narrated. Her writing is idyllic but at the same time very informative. Lets just sit back and enjoy her journey through the historical yet picturesque Venice!

Over to you Vidya.

Venice travel experience:

Ciao friends,

This post is about one of the most romantic cities in Europe – Venice.

Venezia, as Venice is known in Italian, is a beautiful place, a honeymooner’s paradise.  So when my husband and I planned our trip to Europe, we made sure that Venice was on the itinerary.

The city of Venice is in the Venetian lagoon, an enclosed bay of the Adriatic Sea. It is a place where you can walk around, see some sights, go on a gondola ride, and just sit down and relax. It has canals, beautiful monuments and is the city that inspires poetry and passion.

How to get there:

We arrived at the pier and boarded a private boat which took us to the heart of the traditional city of Venice – St Marks Square. Needless to say we were ‘ooh’-ing and ‘aah’-ing by the time the boat reached the city.  On route we saw some huge cruise ships. Really huge ones, that, we could easily mistake for apartment buildings.

Piazza San Marco:

Known as St Mark’s Square in English, this square is one of the major attractions of Venice. We saw the Doge’s palace, the Basilica, campanile and the bridge of sighs.

Things to do in Venice:

When someone says Venice, the first thing that usually comes into your mind is the Gondola ride, so that is definitely my number one thing to do there as well.

Gondolas are expensive, they charge about 90 Euros for a 30 minute trip, but I think it is definitely worth it for a once in a lifetime romantic experience.

Venice is best viewed from the water, so the gondola ride gives you that awesome experience, after that you can explore the city on your own by foot.

There is no other mode of transport other than the waterways inside the city. You either walk or you don’t. No cars or buses. (Well, no place for them)

We also visited a Murano glass showroom where we were given a private demonstration on glass making. We watched as the glass maker expertly sculpted a Ferrari horse from molten glass. It was beautiful.

There are many touristy shops all over the place, but most of them were overpriced. But of course don’t forget to pick up a few souvenirs to remember your wonderful trip to Venice.

Another thing we did was to eat some delicious gelato, the most popular banana flavor was sublime. (And I don’t even like bananas that much)

Like any other tourist place, Venice too has its share of thieves and pickpockets.  It can get crowded, so be careful and always keep your belongings safe.  The only other negative thing I could think was the smell around the city, the place is on the water so that is a price we have to pay for the beauty.
