Buongiorno Venezia! This summer’s adventure took us on a long trek to Venice where it was a very balmy 37-38 degrees. The city itself is beautiful and filled with so much history and an interesting melange of culture. But I must admit, the heat, mosquitoes, crowds and general-constantly-getting-lost got to me. If you have more time, spare about 3 full days for the city. We rushed it over a long weekend and it was about a 7hrs drive+bus+water taxi+walk for us. The food was great though, and cheap! Which was really refreshing for us given that we were accustomed to the crazy high food prices up North. Will I be back? I’m not sure. If the crowds thin out (I’m told its also busy in the winter, so I’m not sure when is low season), and I find a more efficient way of traveling there, maybe. If not, I’m happy to check if off my list and never return.
