Venturing to the northern capital of Italy, Venice offers amazing architecture, adventurous alleys, fun fashion, gorgeous gondolas and new ways of thinking.
1.The city’s wooden and limestone buildings embrace you, sparking memories of the empire ages in the history books you read at school.

2. Get lost in the maze of alleys where locals will help you reach your destination, who knows you may even make a friend while practising your Italian. Can you say: “Ciao, come stai? Dove si trova…?” (Hello, how are you? Where is…? in Italiano).

3. Along many cobblestones streets are the infamous Venetian masks. It’s fun to explore the color palettes and buy one as a token souvenir.

Venice is one of my favorite cities and I treasured my visit. Autumn is a lovely time to go as the temperature is reasonable and flight fares are low since it’s off season in Europe. Enjoy!
