Italy – Venice

Hey friends!

I’ve got some catching up to do. I started a blog before my study abroad experience, but due to preferences and such other reasons, I began this new one. So, I’m going to be trying to update this blog with all of the posts from the old blog in the next few weeks. I’m trying to make them better than before, so for my friends who are keeping up with my craziness and had read the old blog, then followed to the new blog, you might enjoy reading them again! Either way, I hope you all enjoy!

So, Venice. Venice was spectacular! I loved the city. The winding streets and back alleys provided a super fun labyrinth to explore, with colorful buildings and plants hanging out of windows at every turn. The canals running through the entire island are so cool to see.

The clock tower was where our group met up a few times. There’s some nice shops around this area, though if you’re looking to save money, the further away from the main square that you go, the cheaper things tend to get.

There were many street performers here, like in most places in Europe. This one in particular was very impressive. This guy was playing both of these guitars at the same time!

If you get the chance, definitely take a gondola ride! It’s a great opportunity for pictures, and a unique way to see a city. Very peaceful.

Wandering the streets of Venice is quite an adventure. There are so many beautiful sights to see there.

The Frari church was beautiful! Just a euro (if I remember correctly) to get in, if that’s something you’re interested in. I’ve been seeing a lot of churches here, and I think that the Frari church was nice because it was a little bit simpler design inside.

Venice is definitely worth the visit, if you ever get the chance. Get lost in the labyrinth and simply enjoy the sights!
