Everybody loves Venice, we know that. It’s a city for amorous twosomes, vagabonding on the beautiful streets of this particular city. I’ve been to Venice three times so far, and, well, for the first two I hated it. All the romantic streets are the same, the bridges are the same, and gondoliers and their gondolas are also the same! What a boring city, right?
I only understood the beauty of Venice when I got in the shoes of these twosomes. Wandering without paying attention to this or that bridge just makes the atmosphere magic.
Our journey started in Milano-Venice train, where I was trying to convert my boyfriend to Italian culture (which I am crazy about) playing all my favorite songs on my iPhone. He pretended to be reading a book, so I stopped till the return journey :D In less than two hours we were in Venice and started our discovery. After a couple of hours we got hungry and obviously chose a small local restaurant (not very touristic), but with an arrogant waiter (all the non-touristic restaurants in Italy must have an arrogant waiter, it adds them more charm). My favorite parmigiana di melanzane and some pizza, and we were ready to go!
I believe in the first two times I never made it to the San Marco Square – it’s incredibly beautiful. And it’s huge! We filmed some of myself there and felt a desire for the tastiest ice-cream in Venice. We found the best gelateria on Trip Advisor and headed there. Well, headed is a too strong word, we actually got lost and it took us a while to get our perfect gelato! But the long walk definitely was worth it!
It was already 6pm when we got back to the train station, however our train was only in two hours (never go to Venice for more than 5-6 hours!). Exhausted we found a cozy place to have a dinner, and then were happy to catch the train! The trip was over, but not my boyfriend’s torture – some more Italian music for him! :D
