Venice St Mark’s Square with St Mark’s Basilica and St Mark's Campanile – summer in Italy

St Mark’s Square | Venice, Italy

Piazza San Marco, internationally known as St Mark’s Square gained its own nickname “La Piazza” – THE Square, and I think it says a lot about Venice’s importance. There is a legend that Napoleon called it “the drawing room of Europe”. In our day, I would say the “photographing room of Europe”.

Island in the Venice Lagoon – Burano and San Martino Church with the Leaning Tower, Italy

Burano and San Martino with the Leaning Tower | Venice, Italy

The Burano, with its distinctive colours, was unlike anything I had ever seen before. I later learned that there was a purpose behind the colour-toned design. During the golden age of development of Burano, if a house owner wanted to paint his belongings, he had to apply to Burano’s government for a colour. The government would only allow a few options of colours of choice.

Venice gondolas standing still; summer in Italy

Gondolas | Venice, Italy

You mainly see gondolas in one place on this Earth – Venice. There is more history and meaning in them that you would probably expect. And there are only a few hundred of them – you can only be a gondolier if you receive a license from the Venice’s guild.

Perfect Mirror | Venice, Italy

Those who take only one day to visit Venice will regret it in the evening. Not even just because the city is worth it to spend more time in it. That’s for sure. But no, you will walk all day long. Obviously you can’t just hop on a tram or bus; instead you rely entirely on your legs and feet. Oh, and I bet you will get lost!

View on the Grand Canal in Venice during a sunny day

The Grand Canal | Venice, Italy

The Grand Canal is so to say the main road of Venice. It starts on the railway station and goes in form of an S-curve south to the St. Mark’s Square. You can also take the “bus” for that way which takes more or less one hour for the 4km trip. You’ll have a good sightseeing tour for a fair price and it’s great to experience Venice with a perspective from the water.

Sunset in Venice | Italy Italy, Venice In Venice (Venezia) we’ve spent two days and one night on our trip through Italy as we didn’t find any couch which we could have surfed there and the hotels are, let me put it like that, somehow pricy. As we had to look at our...
