Travel with me in ITALY | Part 2

Here is the second part of the trilogy “Travel with me in ITALY” (which by the way rhymes..yas). In case you missed the first part, here it is.

Our only stop today is in Venice!

Venice, the capital of northern Italy’s Veneto region, is built on more than 100 small islands in a lagoon in the Adriatic Sea. It has no roads, just canals – including the Grand Canal thoroughfare – lined with Renaissance and Gothic palaces. The central square, Piazza San Marco, contains St. Mark’s Basilica, which is tiled with Byzantine mosaics, and the Campanile bell tower offering views of the city’s red roofs. (via Wikipedia)

I felt like home here. We walked in the days we went to Venice about 14 km and it felt like nothing. We were so busy admiring every building and every gondola that we forgot about our feet.

The main path to the central square, Piazza San Marco was full with clothing shops and souvenirs shops so my eyes didn’t have the chance to rest not even for a second.

It felt so strange to see only boats and water where you should have seen cars and roads, but really unique. I felt more like in a village.

I loved the architecture because, as I mentioned in my previous article, they are really concerned about keeping every building in the same way it was originally designed. But I really can’t imagine how it feels to live in such a ‘strange’ city.
