Venice

The next morning, Lori and I woke up bright and early once again to being the next leg of our trip: Italy. The first stop was Venice. However, we had a minor (major) set back. When booking our Airbnb, I managed to somehow book a room in a completely different city, about an hour away from the actual island of Venice. Luckily, at this point in the term, we had enough money to get a hotel on the island, deeming it much more worthy of our time and money than trying to make daily trips from Treviso to Venice and back. So we ordered a land taxi to catch a water taxi to get to our new destination.

While I’m sure there are many who will disagree, there isn’t a ton to see in Venice, as far as sites go. Venice is much more of a “take in your surroundings” than a “go-see-do!” city. Wandering the canals and winding through cobblestoned streets was how we spent most of our time. We dedicated a whole day to getting lost in the city, while in actuality we only needed a few hours because the island is so small. Venice was our relaxed stop of the tour, since every other one was jam-packed with too much to do in too little time. The photos shown in this post are mostly from the leisurely stroll we took that day.
