Travel: Venice, Italy

Ohhh man.  My heart belongs to Venice.  If this city wasn't half way across the world, I would visit at least twice a year.  I mean, look!

This city is SO distinctively different from any other place that I've ever been before.  Imagine: 115+ small islands, connected by over 400 bridges.  A city you can navigate by foot or boat through 150+ canals.  No streets, no cars, & nothing but sheer quaintness around every stinkin' corner.  That, is that City of Venice.

My best advice to enjoy all that Venice has to offer:

Wander out into the streets & get lost.
Pop into a quaint little restaurant & order something you cannot pronounce (it will all be in Italian, of course).  Dine outside with a glass of the house wine & linger longer.
People watch.
Admire all the blooming flowers.
Walk past a bakery & take in the scent of freshly baked bread.
Stop for gelato. 
Park yourself on top of a bridge to watch the sunset.
Walk back to your hotel with only the light from the moon & street lamps to guide your way.

Then, do it all again tomorrow.

Please please PLEASE don’t just hang out at the “touristy” and cruise ship stops, specifically Piazza San Marco, or solely along the Grand Canal, the whole while you visit.  If you fall to this mistake, you will likely dislike Venice & never want to return.
