Sightseeing Sundays: Venice (Italy Part 4 of 4)

By Shawndrarussell

Venice was only a one-dayer and was definitely touristy, but we made sure to get off the beaten path and walk through tons of tiny, empty, skinny and twisting alleyways. The center town square is where everyone goes for shopping, eating, and hanging out off the boat.
The best part of the day was the boat ride over. Gorgeous view of the entire coastline, watching the hustle and bustle of this small sinking island. It felt magical to be somewhere that I had read so much about and seen so many pictures of prior.
Romance seeps through every inch of air with the winding canals and unexpected, almost secret-feeling openings that led to small cafes, tiny shops, and bridges of all shapes and sizes. My only regret is that we didn't take a boat taxi tour. Skip the overpriced gondolas and see this water wonderland how it should be seen.
