December 14th is gonna be our anniversary and for the occasion, as I mentioned some posts ago, we are gonna travel to a beautiful city. I was searching through the net for some deals in Europe and I was really sure to go visit Barcelona, but instead… we are going to Venice!
Since I am italian and not a halfie or someone who just lived abroad for her entire life, it’s really a shame I couldn’t visit yet one of the most famous italian cities. Venice is renowned for being a romantic location abroad, where every year there’s a famous film festival. In an american point of view is a place for love, best location for vips marriage or a city to visit once in a lifetime but for an italian is simply history and art.
Venice for me is not a romantic city but a place where I can see beautiful architectures, art and discover the history behind it. Since Venice is basically an artificial island made of 100 small islands linked and supported together by wood poles planted in the mud centuries ago, I wanted to visit it to discover new things to know.
Venice is an essential part of our history: once one of the maritime republic, was a really prosperous city that linked the East Europe (Russia, Turkey and the other countries on the Mediterranean Sea) with the West through Italy, transporting merchants and products by ships even before Marco Polo appeared (13th century).
I will visit Murano and the glass makers, the famous “bridges”, piazza S.Marco and the orthodox cemetery, of course there’s gonna be our anniversary celebration but if I have to say the truth we’re more excited by the possibility to see Venice!
I’m already preparing everything I’ll need: buying a new and bigger trolley, a warmer jacket along with clothes since we are gonna spend most of our time outside site-seeing, train tickets and boat tickets and gifts for his family that we are gonna go visit after Venice. Christmas and maybe New year are with my in-laws so I will be back in January.
Kisses and always enjoy travelling! Bye ❤
