Of the cities I’ve visited in Italy, Venice has been one of my absolute favorites! The color palette of the city is amazing, and the lack of cars and mopeds makes it so much less stressful to wander around! Everyone is walking or taking a boat, and when you cross canals you’re either on a bridge, or on a one of the boats.
While I was exploring I couldn’t help but feel like the movie, “The Italian Job” was going to unfold around me at any moment! The buildings really do have “garage doors” that allow the boats to dock inside the building, and then when they are ready they can navigate into the canals.
Venice of course had gondolas! They are such graceful boats, and it was fascinating to see how they share the (often incredibly narrow!) canals with motored boats.
Do you ever feel like a movie is going to unfold around you?
