Venice, Italy – So Much More Than Glass and Gondolas!
I’d heard Venice was smelly, damp, expensive, sinking and outdated. Well they got that wrong!
OK, maybe it’s sinking, actually it’s tilting and sinking. Yes it’s pricey. However it certainly wasn’t smelly and it was so packed with gorgeous art, stunning architecture, history and irrepressible wow factors that I would have forgiven the city the smell anyway.
Venice is awesome, you arrive at the airport and get the boat, yes boat, from the airport to your hotel.
On the island there are no cars, which is no wonder as the pathways wind adventurously between the high and ancient architecture.
