Venice, Italy 2018

Stop number 3 of my Italy trip!

Stop 1: Rome
Stop 2: Florence

Grand canal views right as you step out of the train station


Ponte degli Scalzi


The ferry system is like their metro. You can see the vaporetto (water bus) station just to the left of the church.


Campanile di San Marco and Palazzo Ducale


Rio de la Pleta


Rio de Palazzo o de Canonica


From the other end of Rio de Palazzo o de Canonica


Rio del Mondo Novo


Piazza San Marco


Ponte di Rialto


T Fondaco Dei Tedeschi, high end shopping mall with rooftop views of the Grand Canal




Hustle and bustle of the Grand Canal










Rio de San Barnaba








Rio de San Trovaso


Expensive ride, but well worth it!


Palazzo Balbi


Instead of sticking their heads out of car windows, the dogs here enjoy the thrill of boat rides!




Dinner spot with a front row view of Basilica di Santa Maria della Salute

Took a short day trip to nearby Burano!

Extra long and skinny ferry




Quaint, colorful, little fishermen's village








Done with Venice/Burano, and now on the way to Cinque Terre with a transfer at the gorgeous Milano Centrale station!

Beautiful! Venice is one of the few famous places in Europe I haven't been to yet.

You should definitely check it out! One of the most unique cities in the world. Despite the crowds, there are tons of small side streets and alleyways that are quiet and serene.

They were there, mostly in the areas around Piazza San Marco and Palazzo Ducale, as well as Ponte di Rialto. But there were certainly plenty of areas where you could easily walk a little further and find some reprieve from the crowds.
