I went for a day trip to Venice, Italy. This city was beautiful and unlike any other!

Getting There

Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia, Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy

I traveled from Florence to Venice via train. It was super fast, inexpensive and comfortable. The area around the station is perfect for souvenirs!

Visiting the Jewish Ghetto

Apartment Ghetto Vecchio, Calle Ghetto Vecchio, Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy

We walked around the former Jewish Ghetto. It was a very sentimental experience, and we got to taste some authentic Kosher Italian food. The shops lining the main square have stunning glass pieces. I purchased a dreidel. Keep your eyes peeled on the narrow streets for tiny art shops with gorgeous work.

Cruising on the Canal

Grand Canal, Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy

We chose to walk, but I highly suggest taking a gondola ride. The canals are so beautiful and it's a great way to see all of Venice!

Photo Op

Rialto Bridge, Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy

We stopped on the iconic (and biggest) bridge for a photo. Love this area for touristy shops and great restaurants on the water.

Lunch with a View

Riva del Vin, 180, Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy

This was the BEST pizza I had in Italy. Highly recommend this restaurant. This street is full of awesome places to eat!

Doge's Palace Tour

Doge's Palace, Piazza San Marco, Venice, Metropolitan City of Venice, Italy

We toured the famous Doge's palace. Highly recommend - it was beautiful and interesting!

Treats on the Go

Venice, Italy

On our way home, we stopped for a famous meringue cookie!
