Italy Re Cap - Visiting Venice

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I enjoyed time with family, warm weather and great food! I'm ready to discuss more of our Italy trip- next stop... Venice! Venice is always one of my favorite places in Europe. It's so magical and amazing. It's hard to believe that the city is built on water! Every time I visit, I am more amazed than before.

As you can see, I love taking gondola pictures!  :)  I might make a couple black and white prints and frame them! There is so much to see in Venice, that we decided to eat on the go. We stopped at a little sandwich shop in St. Mark's Square and sat on the steps to eat. This way, we were back on the move, ready to explore the sites. When you visit big cities in Europe, I strongly suggest purchasing artist sketches of the city. The vendors are everywhere and are so talented. For about 10-15 euros, you can take home an 8x10 matted sketch of a part of the city. When we lived in Germany and visited other cities, I always tried to find a pretty sketch drawing. This time, I chose a black and white sketch of a canal in Venice. It's all framed and on the wall- (I'll have to show you that soon!) Even though Venice is a heavily touristed area, I think it will always be my favorite spot in Europe!

Until we meet again, Venice...
