A Glimpse Of Venice, Italy

Hello Everyone!

My friend is currently on a 6 week volunteer placement in the beautiful Italian city Venice. She loves travelling and is working in a hostel right in the centre of town. 

One month ago myself and another friend booked a spontaneous trip to visit her and set off for a four day break. We had a great time exploring the area and taking so many photos! I thought I would give you a glimpse of this trip through some of the many photos that I took.

The main streets were packed with tourists but a short walk would take you to calm cobbled paths with tall classic Venice homes.

The gondolas were very expensive so we didn't bother going on one but appreciated how traditional and pretty they looked on the canals as we passed over the bridges.

We sampled many of the expensive cocktails and enjoyed eating in the beautiful restaurants. Although one restaurant near our hotel definitely ripped us off!

Down some backstreets my friend showed us this little bookshop. It had books in a gondola, stairs made from books and a fire exit straight into the canal!

We took a boat to another island called Murano where we saw a demonstration of the making of a glass bowl. It was fascinating and so clever!

We also visited Burano which had the most colourful buildings! It was so pretty.

In the evening we went up Campanile di San Marco (the tower in the main square) and watched the sunset.

Have you ever been to Venice?

Love, Phoebe x

  1. Lovely photos! I haven't been to Venice but it looks so nice, if a little expensive. I found the fire exit into the canal rather funny, got to be the best place to be. Looks like you had a lovely time. =^-^=

  5. Venice is beautiful, and so is Italy, every place we visited in Italy was different from the other.
