Benvenuti a Venezia!

It took awhile, but we finally made it to Venezia! Drove/skipped through Austria overnight. Sorry Austria, maybe next time. I know you are a beautiful country that’s worth more than one layover and an overnight drive.

Being able to come here has always been a dream to me. To make this into a reality gives you a feeling of being on top of the world. This city is filled with beauty.

Honestly, never once did I believed, while growing up in the suburbs of San Francisco, I will be able to see this city with my own eyes.

We ended up taking a ferry to get to the main part of the city. Venice has a long highway that connects to the ports. This highway is the only way to get to Venice by car. The picture below was taken as we drove on the highway. This was the side view.

Once we were in the ferry, you could see the landmarks of Venezia. Below is St Mark’s Campanile (the redish tower) and Doge’s Place (the tanish square building on the very right).

After we landed, a rush of emotions swept over me. The historical city was under my feet. It was unreal! As you see below, the flag of Venice.

Thank you for taking your time to read this post! Next week, we will explore more of the city and enjoy the food. Much love! Enjoy your week and stay healthy!

  1. i agree with you. venice is indeed beautiful in spite of the crowd. i still have fond memories of our visit there. while in the city, we rented a small flat where we could watch the gondolas from the kitchen window as they passed by.
