Venice

DSC_0872This past weekend we zipped off to Venice. And, honestly…it’s magical. Yes, it’s completely overrun with tourists. But it’s a city in the middle of the water! Full of gorgeous, slightly crumbling buildings and incredible food! How amazing is that? Leaving the airport, we decided to splurge on a private taxi boat to a stop near our hotel. A travel tip: taking a boat to your hotel immediately makes your weekend special.

We tried to minimize the time spent in the crowds of tourists, taking a sharp turn away from any crowd we met. Our hotel was a bit off the beaten path, with a lovely quiet square in front of it, which helped a lot in feeling like we could have some quiet moments. And, if all of that wasn’t exciting enough, the New York Times ran a 36 Hours in Venice…while we were there! How fun! DSC_0976 DSC_0968 DSC_0958 DSC_0883 DSC_0877 DSC_0882 DSC_0922 DSC_0911DSC_0903

  1. This is one of the perks of living in Switzerland: traveling in Europe is simple (you are just in the center of it!) and looks always cheaper (not Venice although)! Venice is amazing for a weekend and it seems you’ve captured the spirit of it. Bravo!
