Venice


Did you know Venice has endured 1,400 years of nearly constant siege...from Barbarians, Napoleonic armies, water encroaching on its streets, to tourists and cruise ships?

Here are some things Venetians like for visitors to know...and some things we discovered on a recent trip.

It's good to get lost. We had maps and GPS, just like every other tourist in the city. A goal was to get lost at least one day. We did. I don't care how you turn that map, it doesn't show exactly that last little bridge you walked over. It just doesn't. That's okay. Venice is a maze. You can't really get lost...it's surrounded by water. It just may take you longer to get where you wanted to go.
