I left Austria for Italy, in Italy I visited Venice, Florence and Rome. My first destination was Venezia, Venice. I lodged at Venice Garden, which is located in Canaregio. It was quite difficult locating the hostel, I even asked at the information center just outside Santa Lucia train station. All what I was told was Canaregio is quite big and hence they can’t really tell. Thanks to some people I met on the street I was able to find the hostel.
I met some couple of nice people in Venice Garden from different nationalities. I hung out with some, and even got recommendations about where to visit. While with some I exchanged contacts^^. To make things easier for me, I got a 2 day pass, which cost 20 EUR. With this pass I was able to visit San Marco, Murano and Burano Islands, and also travel across the Grande Canal.
It was truly hot in Venice, drinking chilled water could be likened to breathing. Hence it doesn’t comes as a surprise how expensive chilled bottled water is. I did both Murano Island, Burano Island and San Marco in a day…… Yeah, it was a tight schedule. I only had 2 nights to spend in Venice. How naive of me, right? But it was worth it. I already promised myself, I will go back to Venice and spend a week and wonderfully take my time, no rushing at all. I couldn’t touchdown in Torceillo. I only saw the stop, but I didn’t alight from the waterbus. Due to my visit to San Marco, I was able to transverse the Grande Canal.
Okay enough of the blah blah XDD
Lastly here’s a video of a glass making section in Murano –> click me
The buildings are really cute and pretty!!!
