Lost in Venice

 

Because we only had a 1.5 days left of our trip, we didn’t have an exact schedule for Venice. Few things I wanted to see and do in Venice were:

  • Piazza San Marco, Doge’s palace
  • Grand canal
  • Saint Mark’s Basilica and Square
  • Gondola ride
  • Bridge of Sighs
  • Murano Island/ Burano Island
  • Santa Croce

Looking back, I’m glad that I didn’t have anything planned (Except for having a reservation at Trattoria Al Gatto Nero) because all we did in Venice was wandering around the canals and bridges and carefully getting lost. As we got lost in Venice, we found ourselves discovering most of the things we wanted to see as we went.
