A Day in Photos- The Venice Canals (ITALY)

Gondola in Venice

Blogging yesterday about the Canals in Venice, California I thought now would be a good time to share some photos of an even more famous Venice, the one in Italy which is called Venezia in Italian. I am a big fan of Italy especially since my husband is 100% Italian (and then some). I first visited Venice on my first trip to Europe, which was a tour, at age 21. I fell in love with the cute, small touristic city. Venice has great food, beautiful views, is very romantic, and famous for the Venice Canals with gondolas and water taxis everywhere.

My second trip to Venice was with a college friend named Lisa. We spent time traveling around Europe before I settled into my job in Switzerland as an ‘au pair’. My most recent trip to Venice was with my husband and it was great! Never speaking Italian prior and traveling with him we explored off the tourist path starting with walking to St. Mark’s Square to talking more with the locals. We hope to bring our kids there on the next trip and have them experience taking a gondola ride in Italy!
