We took a bus and boat ride from Bibione into Venice (bus took around 1 hour and a half, boat took half an hour).
I had heard you can get lost pretty easily in Venice, but I didn't think we would walk off the boat and after 5 minutes be lost! Where we walked to wasn't even on our map! The advantage with this was there were no tourists anywhere, and you could imagine that this is how it is to actually live in Venice.
An hour and a half later we found our way back and visited San Marco Square.
Buzzing with tourists and almost unbearable heat, I was happy when we started making our way through the tiny shaded passageways that offered some cool air.
There's something so magical in Venice that I can't even describe. Seeing no cars around is already something so different and how close all buildings are and the tiny streets that wind their way in between each building is just amazing.
The crumbling and not so perfect buildings is what makes Venice so quirky, and after running around for a few hours we stopped for some food.
We chose a little restaurant away from tourists. Joerg had octopus and polenta, and I had a vegetable omelette. It was the best food I had all week!
We carried on walking deeper into Venice, sometimes stumbling upon tourist attractions and other times being completely alone.
I am so jealous of whoever lives here!
We stopped off at a coffee shop that was called "cooffee" (slight spelling mistake!) and I had a fresh fruit juice which was so good. Ginger, orange, apple and carrot.
We arrived at half 10 in the morning and left at 16:45. It was already time to travel back but we managed to see a lot of Venice!
This is in the boat on the way back - on the way there we had seats outside but on the return trip we had to sit inside.
Hands down Venice was the highlight of our trip to Italy.
Venice I love you and I can't wait to visit again!
