Venice is another city that is completely mesmerizing. There is really nothing like it: the number of bridges you cross to get over canals, the way that water taxis work, getting lost turning down small streets that end in a dead end (it’s really comical to think of how people did this before Google Maps). But this city is truly beautiful with it’s colorful buildings that add such a charm to this wonderful place!
A place I recommend visiting is Doge’s Palace. It’s a quick walkthrough the palace, but you get to walk through the Bridge of Sighs and into the prison area which was super interesting to see.
A bakery that I really recommend is Marchini Time. We stopped here in the afternoon’s for a coffee (the largest cafe latte I got on the entire trip) along with their strudel which was so delicious!
And I made it my mission to visit the Church that was used in the film Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. It was super exciting to see it and the area surrounding the church is positively adorable.
And everyone at The Westin was absolutely wonderful. The location was fabulous – except for the creepy streets you had to walk down to get to it – and they gave us a room with a fabulous room of the Basilica across from the Grand Canal.
On to Como tomorrow!
