Last month, I was thrilled to spend two weeks in Italy. One of my favorite parts of the trip was the time I spent in beautiful Venice. It doesn't matter how many movies or photographs you have seen, nothing can compare to the total awe-inspiring experience of seeing gondolas in the canals and Venetian architecture. Even though this was my second visit to Venice, it is almost impossible to find the words to describe this amazing city!
Venice is made up of more than 100 little islands interconnected by canals and bridges. Two of my favorite areas of Venice were Murano and Burano. A visit to these islands seems to send you back in time to a quieter, more laid-back atmosphere. Read more about Murano and Burano on my blog.
And did I mention the food and drink? Gelato, pizza, espresso, traditional fish dishes, gnocchi, tiramisu, wine... need I go on?
