Afloat in midst a lagoon, Venice is known as one of the most extraordinary cities in the world. Unfortunately sinking away slowly, the entire city is listed as an UNESCO site (though much of Italy seems to have made the UNESCO list).
Its numerous bridges and canals, and overall architectural impossibleness leave you in awe and distracted from the frustration otherwise felt in an attempt to navigate the windy little laneways and chase the inconsistent signs towards “Per Rialto”.
The canals are probably best appreciated by a gondola ride but those luxuries are unfortunately way out of our budget. Aside from gondolas, speedboats also cruise the canals, naturally prompting me to make the comment “oh he’s probably doing an Italian job” everytime another one flies by.
