Stunning architecture. Mysterious passageways. And of course, the canals. Venice is one of the most alluring cities in the world—the type of place where, as a visitor, you'll welcome getting lost (as you inevitably will). Relax in Piazza San Marco, take a moonlit gondola ride or taste the original Bellini at Harry's Bar. Or just wander. No matter where you go, you'll find history, beauty and romance.
I could not be happier. After months of working lots and lots, I had the privilege some years ago to spend 2 weeks in paradise. Actually, I wasn't splashing money to be there. I had a nice little room in a scuba-diving kind of hostel. As I spent most of my time under water, it wasn't that important to me. But see for yourself and enjoy :-)
