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 budget, we stayed in a small hotel near to the University of Venice.
Turned out that wasn’t the worst thing that could happen to us. Away from all the tourists we actually met people who are living in Venice. The restaurants were affordable and we even got a table directly at the channel. Basically, everything bad which we were told about Venice before we went there didn’t happen.
This picture I took as we came back from the touristic centre of Venice in the evening and it’s taken close to the hotel where we stayed. Lucky it was on the main channel that went west so we could see the sunset.
