It’s that city where you can bathe in history. It’s that city where you can hold in your hand the most beautiful memories and never let them go. It’s that city where it seems like all dreams may come true. It’s that city where history merges reality and where love is infinite.
It’s Venice. Yes, the beautiful Venice. Venice, the city people talk about throughout the world…
I’ve always dreamed about visiting this awesome city. To walk on all its streets, to see its waters, to wander all its cafes. As I’m an artistic person, I imagined myself sitting on a road side, with a book in one hand and with my journal in the other. This meant perfection for me.
Well, as I had the possibility to spend in Venice just one day, it wasn’t exactly as had imagined, but it surely fascinated me. I knew I would like Venice even before getting there, maybe this thing also influenced the way I saw it.
Firstly, I didn’t even imagine a city on water. Of course I’ve read a lot about Venice and about its public transport, but still!
From the first moment I got off the bus and stepped on the „venetian territory”, I understood how lucky I was! What a beauty and I didn’t even see anything!
More I went forward, more delighted was I! The uniform arhitecture and, at the same time, such a different arhitecture, colorful buildings, new and old, but without noticing it! The tourists who were walking up and down without even knowing where to start from, as the place was full of beauties! The cafes that were full of travelers who stopped by to drink their coffee! The beautiful taxis, which you see in movies and say to yourself: „Well, it should be so romantic!”
And, of course, the bridges, both small and big, which Venice stands on!
Here is the taxi! 🙂
I returned home tired. Physically, not morally. If I always listened to my heart, I would remain there forever!
Still I have a thing I didn’t like about Venice. There were a lot of tourists in July. If you want to enjoy Venice as it expects form you, if you want to taste all the beauties that it offers you, you should visit it in spring, autumn or even winter. But not summer. Venice is a great city. It requires attention and time. You can’t just pass by. You have to study it, to understand it. You have to look for its history and to listen to it.
I wish you a beautiful vacation in Venice! I hope you will return with a smile on your face, my dear reader!
