As soon as you hear Italy the first thing pops in peoples head is mouth watering food and hot sexy men…… I was prepared to keep an open mind on both counts haha … and I was very excited about experiencing the beautiful Venice/ Venezia my way….
I arrived in Venice mid afternoon, it was a warm day, Clear blue sky .. not to hot not to cold… just perfect. The taxi ride…I should say the water taxi ride getting in to Venice was absolutely amazing, I have never experienced anything like it before. No roads and no cars, I can not imagine myself driving one of these boats to get around this floating island paradise. I have to admit without the road sings and road names I would be totally lost. Its like a maze. I have to say patience and courtesy are two main requirements if you want to drive yourself around these waterways, no one is in a mad rush here…..
Walking over the bridge in high heels or stilettos is extremely challenging so comfortable shoes is highly recommended and so is paying some one to carry your suitcase to your hotel. Never the less it was the experience I would not change for anything. After changing in to comfortable shoes, I had the pleasure of investigating this beautiful floating city ….. my biggest attraction to this City of water, City of Masks, City of Bridges and City of Canals …. The Floating City is the mysterious personality. The more I see the more I was drawn to it …. I am attracted more and more to the unknown … to the mystery
Venice is a city located in northeastern Italy, in a marshy Venetian Lagoon and is made of 117 small islands which are separated by canals and joined by bridges, This city is listed as a World Heritage Site. Architecture and artworks together with the beautiful setting and Italian food attracts tourist from all over the world all year around. My personal opinion is that the beautiful people is what makes this place even better place to visit and more enjoyable. Everyone I met from the staff at the hotel to waiters at the restaurant to shop assistants where so helpful and polite, their english is not fluent and in some cases its really bad but they all make a huge effort to help.
I adventured off to do a gondola tour with the musicians singing as we cruised though this mysterious floating paradise. Relaxing back with the soft music taking in the breathtaking views while this sexy hot Italian man manoeuvres the gondola through the water ways making it look just effort less ….. but I am sure if I went to do that I would definitely tip the gondola up side down in no time ..hahaha
I was very sad leaving this beautiful paradise and I can not wait to visit again some time very soon. If you are visiting Venice/ Venezia I would highly recommend the gondola ride. It is an amazing experience.
