Venice in December
Before I created this blog, I travelled a little around Europe. I have a lot of photos from these trips and rather than not use them, I have decided to do a series of “Blast from the Past” posts starting with Venice! I was in Venice in December 2006 (time really does fly!) and actually got engaged there (it didn’t last).
Anyway on with the photos…………
One of the obvious tourist things to do in Venice, is to take in a Gondola ride. Is it expensive! Back in 2006, it was €70 for two people for a 45 minute trip (seranading optional). Then again, you will probably only do it once in your live, so is it really that bad?
Saint Marks Square
Of course no trip to Venice would be complete without a visit to Saint Marks Square!
My Hotel – Foscari Palace
If you are interested, the Hotel I stayed in was the 4* Foscari Palace located right on the Grand Canal itself and complete with solid marble bathrooms. Very fancy! Too fancy for me if I am honest!
Have you ever been to Venice? What did you think of it? I visited Venice in December and got very lucky with the weather. While still feeling quite touristy, I can only imagine it being really bad during the summer months! Of course, another advantage of going in winter months is getting good deals on flights and accommodation.
