Venice is the most unique city I’ve personally visited in Europe – consisting of 118 islands connected by bridges and separated by a network of canals. There are also no cars allowed on Venice Proper. Just imagine the freedom of exploring without stopping at crosswalks or looking out for cars – it’s a pretty great experience! To be honest, I liked Venice on my first visit but it wasn’t until my second that I really loved this city. My advice is to make sure you have enough time to both visit the main attractions (my favorites listed below) and wander aimlessly in the city. Venice is made up of 6 neighborhoods so there’s quite a lot of ground to cover! Though if you ask me, San Marco is still my favorite.
To continue our romantic getaway, my boyfriend and I chose the unique city of Venice. This was our first time in Venice and with only two days, we made sure to pack in all the main tourist attractions. We even crossed off “gondola ride” from our bucket list! No cars are allowed on Venice Proper so get your walking shoes ready! I do think the best way to explore is to walk aimlessly around the city, passing by all the shops and crossing over numerous canals. I would absolutely visit Venice again because two days is just not enough!
