Venice is one of the “must” places you have to go if you are coming to Italy. At the beginning I have to confess that I wasn’t much enthusiastic about going to Venice. I had this idea about Venice that was some sort of cliché city that you have so high expectations that disappoints you at the end but if you are in Italy you can not not to go, so I did.
As soon as I arrived I was left speechless. Yes, Venice is all the things that I thought it will be: The canals, the gondola, the small streets, the costumes, the acqua alta. But it is something in the city’s atmosphere that just enchants you and just make you falling in love of it.
I went in the middle of the carnival so it was pretty crowded and since I am a weird crowd lover, it was perfect. You have people with masks all over the place, tourist taking photos and then you go off the touristic path and find yourself in a quiet, empty small street… or canal.
I had great company, the best sunset at Murano’s island with italian coffee and for the close a typical venetian spritz at a bar in one canal.
So at the end, Venice became the italian must that I liked the most.
