I love Venice.
Like, really really REALLY love it.
It was freezing cold and raining on and off today… and Venice was still beautiful and awesome :)
I’m obsessed with the canals and all the tiny little unique streets — I love that you can just turn a corner and come upon something like this:
Look how adorable this couple is — so romantic!
As you guys know, I headed to Venice today with my brother, Steve! This was my second time visiting Venice, but Steve had never been, so it was fun showing him around :)
The train station is about a 45 minute walk from the main square in Venice (Piazza San Marco!), which was nice because it gave us time to take in all the beautiful scenery and tiny winding streets! It’s very easy to get lost in Venice, but it’s so small you won’t be lost for long, and even if you are it’s so cute you won’t care :)
Our first order of business upon arriving in Venice, however, was lunch! We found a cute little pizza place and dug right in.
Move over, German sausage… it’s time for a calzone the size of my entire body.
Seriously. This was so enormous it overtook the plate.
Stuffed full of delicious veggies: spinach, eggplant, zucchini, and… corn?! Why do Europeans randomly add corn to everything? So weird! Oh well… it was delish, corn or not ;)
My brother enjoyed the sausage and mushroom pizza. Yum!
Italian food, you rock.
After lunch, we headed toward Piazza San Marco (the main square) for some sightseeing!
But… I must leave you all in suspense now, as this post has gotten out of control and I still have a billion pictures I want to share with you :)
Stay tuned for part 2, including some great pictures of the palace and basilica in Piazza San Marco, plus our awesome dinner (yes, I had pasta with black squid ink sauce!!). Also, I may or may not have gotten a photo with the cute little Italian man who worked at the restaurant. Heh!
I’ll be back tomorrow morning with part 2 — have a great night, friends!
