Venice, Italy

0

Venice is definitely the most photogenic city we’ve met so far. In every corner there’s a new texture, color or special scene. Every window, bridge, gondola, is an invitation to a new picture.
We spent two days there, but it was one of the cities that we photographed the most. It was hard to select the best shots, that’s why we decided to make a big post, full of pictures for you.

Oh! We heard a lot of people complaining about Venice being an expensive and smelly place. Well, we didn’t witness any of that. We stayed in a camping at Mestre, a city next to Venice, and it took us 15 minutes by bus to get from one to the other. And we always chose restaurants that were a little further from the most touristic places, and the prices were really fair.

It’s amazing to notice that two things change when you walk one or two blocks away from the main sightseeing spots (and this in every city we’ve visited so far): first, the number of people walking around drops drastically; and second, the prices fall in the same proportion. Generally the tourists are a little lazy and follow the same route as everyone else, from one monument to the next. They end up knowing a city full of tourists, with stores and restaurants directed for tourists. Well, better for us, who end up paying less, getting to kmow the city, walking around in calmer places and finding different photos. =)
