Europes most romantic city- Venice!

Consisting of 117 islands, Venice is one of the most beautiful cities that we visited. Few fun facts about this “Floating City” connected by canals and bridges:

-According to tradition, a couple stays in love forever if they kiss under the bridges while riding a gondola
– Water from fountains which is actually all over Italy is safe for drinking.
– Also, Venice is sinking at the rate of 1-2 millimeters a year.

We rode a gondola on our very first night but sadly we only found out about the kiss tradition after we got off. The time we spent in Venice was just not enough and I’m not sure how long it will take to enjoy this city. Most of all we absolutely loved our strolls along the Grand canal watching the busy life around, the canal filled with gondola’s and water taxi’s while the surrounding buildings were classical and unique. There were Venetian masks at every corner, colorful and so beautiful. Some were quite daunting but mostly they were all so unique.
