Travel: Salute Venezia! Discovering Enchanting Venice

“It’s Venice dear the whole city is a museum.” – my friend Dacotah R.

As we packed our bags for the summer, last year, to head off on the road trip that took us to 3 destinations, I had no idea how true these words, by the lovely, Dacotah, were going to be.

Venice has been on my bucket list forever and the fact that we were finally managing this trip was more than exciting. We had just a few days in the city and I wanted to make the most of it.

Yes, I wanted to see those famous landmarks and attractions that every travel guide mentions as a “must see,” but I really wanted to experience the Venice real Venetians live everyday. Walk the narrow streets, beyond the tourist attractions, sip an ombra in a bàcaro, nibbling on a variety of cicchetti with the locals away from the hustle and bustle of the exploding crowds so well known for Venice.
