Venice is a dream… Before visiting this magical island, people told us about the smelly water and dirty crowded streets but we found it exactly the opposite. The warm air smelled like fresh sea water, the streets were clean, and the light was golden. Once you escaped the crowded thoroughfares around St Mark’s Square, it was as though you were alone on a Renaissance island. Most of the alleyways and streets were empty on the warm July day when we visited. It was amazing! Imagine the sound of birds chirping, flowing water and a warm breeze flowing through your hair…that is Venice. Oh and the food wasn’t too shabby either!
