Mar 23, 2011
We were now entering the big league, and despite the overwhelming number of people roaming the streets (it is as bad as you've heard), the confusing laneways (no where near as bad as you’ve heard), and all the craziness embodied by Venice – it is definitely worth it. The city still has its charms and quiet spots, the canals are amazingly beautiful (even if it costs +100 Euro to Gondalise them), the old architecture stunning, museums packed with exceptional art and an energetic vibe running through it the entire day. You can still find yourself some reasonably priced goods with a bit of a keen-eye and persistence, our greatest acquisition being a one euro/one litre wine purchase of some tasty Merlot (funny we keep finding these – not like we are looking out for them…). The Lido provided a little beach time, which is always refreshing, the food was fantastic, and the cafes and city at large are all rather nice.
