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.
I went to Boston with my college roommate, Veronica, for MLK weekend. This was my first time in Boston and it quickly became one of my top three favorite cities in the United States. I became obsessed with the red brick streets and fell in love with the delicious food. I was also lucky to have Veronica as my guide because it was the perfect 3-day itinerary!
