    A beautiful city, Venice, and so unique with its waterways. There is nothing like a view from any high-up place, the the rooftops of the city look to be lovely from your pictures, but difficult to get to and see. There is nowhere quite like a tourist attraction to capitalize!

    What expensive drinks! I am amazed at the prices but will say that was a cute little coffee. Love that you shared the things you loved and hated; that makes it more real.

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, definitely a unique city and very cool to see from up top.

  2. The view from the roof top is so pretty. You have taken some great photographs! Venice looks so pretty. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on your trip!! 🖤

    1. Thanks so much! Yes, that rooftop was definitely a highlight!

    I kinda feel the same way about Venice. I really enjoyed my trip but it’s not my favourite place ever either. We stayed right near St Mark’s Square and so obviously got to see it when everything was open. There are a lot of things that are over priced but I definitely think it’s worth the visit x


    1. Thanks for reading & commenting, Sophie! Definitely the same boat on enjoyable visit but not a favourite. Would probably have been cool to see St Mark’s Square when everything was open, so would like to give it a try if I ever go back to Venice.

    I love your beautiful smiles in the photos! 🙂

    I really like how you pointed out what you loved and hated about this city. I’ve been meaning to visit but did not know anyone’s experience of it, so this makes me feel more confident about going there, especially because I know what to look for and what to avoid. Thanks!

    1. Aww, thank you so much! I hope you enjoy Venice. Definitely a city with a lot to love and (maybe) a lot to hate.

    I love this concept of writing about the good parts and bad parts! The rooftop looks gorgeous and your pictures are amazing as well. I feel like they captured the Venice vibe perfectly.

    1. Thanks so much, Melissa! Yes, the rooftop was definitely a highlight.

  6. You are so right Riana! Absolutely love getting lost in Venice, the handbags of course and the islands of Murano and Burano.

    Did not love the cost of transportation, the crowds/queues or the cost of gondola’s. Although if you do go again I’d recommend you take lessons in gondoliering- similar price but you get a few hours and you get to have a go. So much fun!

    And a great tip to stay near the train station. Wheely suitcases are an absolute nightmare in Venice!

    1. I saw the gondoliering lessons on Somebody Feed Phil and it did look like fun, but something I’d be horrible at. Good tip though!

    Thanks for sharing your love and hate list about Venice. As seems to be your style, (as I am new to your blog) you let it all hang out in an ambassadorlike manner. Also, your pictures are sensational. We will be going there in about 2 weeks for 3 full days, and are looking forward to it. I appreciate your tips about the crowded boats, and overpriced food. Every travel adventure comes with some travail.

    I hope to be able to take it all in stride, because I hear Venice is uniquely beautiful.

    Much thanks.

    1. Thank you, Howard! I really appreciate your comment and hope you have a wonderful time in Venice!

  8. My god, some of those prices are eye watering even compared to Sweden! I just love how honest you are in your writing. Venice looks absolutely stunning but I’ve heard very mixed reviews and it was nice to read so much detail about both the good and the bad. Thanks for this post!

    1. Thank you so much – I really appreciate you reading the post and leaving a comment!

  9. I loved finding and reading your blog! So helpful! Do you remember the name of that coffee shop? Thanks again

    1. Thanks so much! Unfortunately, I don’t recall the name of the coffee shop. I think we kind of just stumbled upon it and I can’t find my notes from that trip anymore. Sorry! Hope you stumble upon it too or an even better one!
