A DAY IN VENICE

Venice is one of the most interesting cities in the world, it is built on over 100 tiny islands and connected by bridges. It is one of those cities where you want to get lost while travelling and discover the place by your self. The only means of transport here is by boat or by foot, making it more fun to explore since everything is close by.

Start the day by the railway station area and make your way towards the St. Mark’s Square.

Stuff your bags with fun souvenirs- masks and glass ware that is not easily breakable. There are also boutiques that sell some pretty unique stuff like hats, beaded accessories, wooden ship models etc.
