A week after being in Milan, I jumped on a plane once again, and headed back to Italy – this time to Venice.
The sunshine group was traveling through Italy so I decided to meet my parents in their last stop, Venice (primarily because they weren’t coming to visit me in London!).
It had been 13 years since I had last been there, and it was still as beautiful as I remember it.
While extremely touristy, something about the canals makes Venice charming. You can easily spend a day just wandering through the tiny alleys, winding through the city. It is pedestrian-only, making the only way to get around by foot or boat.
On foot, you go over briges, viewing canals filled with gondolas on either side.
The cafes filled with Venetian food and wine, gelaterias and espresso stands, high-fashion and of course, the local murano glass.
In addition to visiting Venice, we spent an afternoon on the neighboring islands, to see the churches and the murano glass factory.
Of course, being with the sunshine group, no trip would be complete without an indian meal. Therefore, we found the one-and-only Indian restaurant in Venice, Sri Ganesh for dinner one night.
It was alright, but in my opinion, stick to the local cuisine.
