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 :)))

Going to Venice is somewhat of an experience. Something you do once and you enjoy it but might not do again. It's not really a living city and rather gives the atmosphere of huge outdoor museum where you take your place in the cue walking through the city. In addition it is silly expensive.
Find some side streets and you might find a cosy place, but be prepared to pay for it!

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.
