Sunday Snapshot: Venice

The Venetian canals get me every time. In a city dominated by waterways, big and small, there is no shortage of beautiful canals. At the same time, in a city flooded with tourists, there is something incredibly peaceful (and triumphant) in finding an empty canal. I love how the stone and brick buildings have begun to crumble and show the age and character of the city. Stay tuned for more posts in the upcoming weeks about my trip to Venice!

    • Thank you – I love the colors too! Finding a quiet canal was one of my favorite parts of busy Venice!

  3. Oh I love Venice! Definitely want to read more and see more photos. I’m lucky to have been there twice and both visits just blew me away. Spring time is lovely there. It can be chilly, but nowhere near as crowded as I imagine summer must be. I need to go back again!

    • I’m glad to find someone else who loves Venice! People have such mixed emotions about it, but I found it to be charming. There were certainly a lot of tourists in September and I would love to return when it was a little less crowded. I did not have enough time to adequately explore!

  4. Venice looks amazing, I cant wait to visit there but I am looking to go in September/October when it is less crowded!

    • Yes, Venice is amazing! I went in September which I thought was “shoulder season,” but it was still quite busy. I would definitely try for early October if I were you as you may have a better chance at avoiding the crowds. I hope you make it there soon!
