Venice, located in the norther part of Italy is 4 hours away from Pisa by train. Ideally, stay there for 2-3 days so you can explore the other islands like Burano. Venice is separated by canals instead of roads and linked by small bridges making it an interesting destination to explore.
I wish I could tell you to just get lost in the city (though you still can) but it’s a better idea to make sure you already know where you want to go. There are just too many tourists in almost all the areas that you won’t enjoy getting lost. They have public toilets for those who like to pee!
Rialto Bridge – is the oldest bridge across the channel separating San Marco and San Polo. You can get a good view of the Grand Canal from the bridge.
Grand Canal –one of the major canals in Venice where the water buses or also called vaporeti and private taxis use to take tourists around the city.
Rialto Market– before reaching San Marco, you will find the Rialto Market. Shop for some spices, fruits and even food!
Piazza San Marco – is the main public square in Venice. It has a good view of the sea and the St. Mark’s Basilica. And here I am chasing pigeons again amidst the people taking selfies and photos. You can stay here (like what the other tourists are doing) and take a rest from walking.
Saint Mark’s Basilica – It is one of the most famous churches in Italy especially for its Italo-Byzantine architecture. I wasn’t able to get a photo of the whole church because there’s just too many people.
Get lost in the streets!
I’ll definitely be back to explore the other islands!
Our last stop is next: Rome!
