Beautiful Venice

Is Venice, Italy on your bucket list?

Venice was at the top of my bucket list when we went in 2009 and after going I added going back to Venice onto my bucket list. About VeniceGo figure. It’s just like Hawaii for me.

I was still new to travel blogging when we went and I posted very little on our trip to Venice. Tonight on a www.TravelingMom.com twitter party on romantic travel they asked where the most romantic place you’ve ever been. I could list 10 off the top of my head, but Venice, Italy tops that list. Here’s a photo tour about Venice 3.5 years later!

We did tons of window shopping, including strolling through a local market. Venice is known for it’s Murano glass and you can see from these pictures that holds true. The glass art was exquisite, as was the glass jewelry.

About VeniceAbout VeniceNot every inch of Venice is on a canal, although most of it was! On our last morning we strolled back towards the entrance to the city to catch the bus. We stopped in a couple of shops, grabbed some lunch and hung out eating in this park.Meagan 901 Meagan 846

Walking around the city is an experience. Even if you do nothing but walk around and hang out in cafes you’ll have a great time. If you want some beach time jump on a vaparetto and head out to Lido Beach.

    Venice (anyplace in Italy really) is definitely on my bucket list- and you’re right, it is a bit like Hawaii in which I don’t think you can go and ever be bored. Just looking around it is so beautiful that you are happy, even doing nothing!

    I love this. Bucket Lists SHOULD have sequels! It’s more optimistic that way.
