My trip to Venice

I spend 5 days in beautiful Venice. It was my very first time there and I didn´t quite know what to expect. Of course I did my research on the internet, about what to expect when it comes to prices or what the most common places are to visit.
I have to say I fell in love with Venice right away. The weather has been amazing all 5 days. It was sunny and we had between 9 and 16°C. Our hotel Villa Rosa was very close to the canal de grande and only 30-45 minutes to the famous S. Marco.
The Hotel only had two stars, but it was very close to the center of the city and we had an amazing room. The breakfast was okay as well, totally enough for the 5 days.

The city itself is just stunning, there is not one modern building. The whole character of the city stayed the same during the years. Venice is breathtaking. There is so much to see and you can literally see everything by just walking around.


There are no cars in the whole city. Everything you want to reach you can by walking there or taking one of the famous water taxis. The water taxis aren´t expensive. A single ticket is around 7 euros or 20 Euros for a ticket which you can use the whole day.

Obviously, when you are in Italy, one of the best things is the food! We had breakfast in our hotel and only had a small lunch every now and then. 
When it came to eating dinner, we had a blast! In Venice there are restaurant everywhere. The prices are unbelievably high and you really need to have a good look around before deciding on one. Never eat in a restaurant on the main road, try to find smaller once in alleyways. The prices are much better and the quality is great. 

The whole trip was just amazing. It was good to go away for a few days and just breath. To just see new things and discover such an amazing city, was exactly what I needed. 
I would recommend visiting this city to anyone who loves a good trip to a city. Everyone who loves to walk around, to take some good pictures and to discover a city so different to the modern world, will love this city. It is worth a trip!
