Walking in Venice is not an option, it is a way of life, literally. Seldom would you see motorbikes around and much more seldom than that are cars. For how can cars travel around on alleys and road made for pedestrians? This is the charm that only Venice can bring. A beautiful setting, truly inspiring architecture characterized by vibrantly-colored buildings, a thousand bridges, a city in itself an artwork. All to be appreciated when on foot, not by choice but by necessity.
Dubbed as the “La Dominante”, “Serenissima”, “Queen of the Adriatic”, “City of Water”, “City of Masks”, “City of Bridges”, “The Floating City”, and “City of Canals” (City of windows too if I may add); I have to agree that Venice is the most beautiful city built by man. It wouldn’t lag behind Paris for being a romantic city as well.
If you are considering to book one of Italy holidays, I recommend Venice to be on your list. Getting lost in this city is a welcome escape. Going through a maze of streets and alleys mean discovering magical passageways, a window of amazement and bridges to another wonderful world.
That’s what hubby and I did there, walk our way out of the maze, took photos of the buildings, the streets, the canals and bridges to our heart’s content. We dined at one of the restaurants by the Venetian Lagoon to have authentic pizza, pasta and tramezzini…It’s a trip full of memories I’d always treasure and hope to have again.
