Our Trip to Venice, Italy

Home to many of the world's greatest works of art, architecture and gastronomy, Italy inspires and moves like no other.

Recently, my boyfriend and I went to Venice for our three year anniversary. I am going to share with you my experience and of course - a lot of photos.
We were told that Venice could get terribly crowded during December, but we were lucky that it wasn't that crowdy. Since you’d be walking a lot it is safe to say that wearing comfy shoes and clothing would be best. Make sure to bring a winter hat and gloves because it was really windy and cold.

After approximately 8 hours of travelling from Zagreb (bus), we finally arrived at Punta Sabbioni.
From there, we went on a boat to Venice.

We arrived at Riva degli Schiavoni (35 minutes from punta Sabbioni) which s a waterfront in Venice. There is a lively, although often overcrowded, promenade along the waterfront.

On top of this monument is an equestrian statue of Emanuele II., first King of unified Italy. On either side of the monument is a woman and her winged lion - one is posed as if in battle with a lion gnawing at his chains, on this side is a women dressed in royal garb and a roaring lion with his claws upon two closed books.

If you’re up for a romantic trip with your partner then a gondola ride is perfect for you. The only downside about it: the price. They can be very expensive, but you can always negotiate.

From here on, our tour guide left us and we explored Venice on our own. A lot of people say that it is easy to get lost, but thankfully we didn't.

  12. Italija je jedna od meni omiljenih država u Evropi, ali i šire. Do sada je nažalost nisam posetila, ali imam neke planove da mi to bude 'poklon' od same sebe, ako tako mogu reći, za 17. rođendan. Meni definitivno najlepši a i omiljeni gradovi su Milano i Venecija, mada mi je cela Italija nekako autentična i specifična, skroz onako 'druga priča'. Drago mi je zbog tebe što si posetila ovu prelepu državu i nadam se da si se (a na slikama deluje da jesi) dobro provela. 😊
