If you duck into the alleys of Venice, you can discover a side of the city that many people miss as they travel the main tourist paths from the Rialto to St. Mark’s and elsewhere.  Venice is a maze of narrow alleyways and small bridges.  Inside these alleys are many architectural delights – from ancient buildings to fountains and small squares.  You won’t be caught in the crowds that take over Venice and can save money at the local shops and restaurants that are off the tourist path.   One caveat is that it is very easy to get hopelessly lost in the maze, so bring a map, be ready to ask for directions, and budget enough time for getting lost.

The most romantic city in the world... we were there in winter... and it was like something out of a fairytale... the little alleys are so safe... day or night... the little shop windows are divine... with surprises in each one... from the handmade mask makers to the ancient cobblers passing their craft on to the next generation.... the food was superb... Phantom of the Opera could have been playing through speakers and it would have been perfect!!!

Venice...such a beautiful, ancient architecture full of romance and love! Cathedral of St. Marco, Church Santa Maria de la Salute, etc...The bridge of love, etc...simply beautiful!
I have visited couple of places in Italy and it is still one of my favorite countries:)

Well, while in primary school, I have seen "The Godfather" for the first time and my dream was to marry Italian guy and live in Sicily :)))

We wandered twice in the narrows alleys of Venice. The first was cause we got lost trying to find our hotel... The second was on purpose to avoid the crowds near the Grand Canal and the other bridges. We had the chance to see and feel the other side. More quiet and romantic we had our drink where locals do.

A labyrinth of Alleys in Venice. Make sure you have a map handy because as you wander the cobblestone alleyways and cross dozens of canal bridges it`s easy to get turned around and lose your sense of direction, as I found out while exploring the Rialto Bridge area one afternoon.

Em uma única palavra, APAIXONANTE.. Não existe outra cidade como ela. À noite, os restaurantes enchem e os canais refletem as luzes da cidade, dando um toque especial ao lugar, que se torna ainda mais romântico. No outro dia, era hora de partir... (1 dia é o suficiente!) ;)
