Venice - Italy

Even though it's hard to choose favourites, one of my most adored places I visited is definitely Venice.  Located in northern Italy, it was hard to not be in awe of the beautiful setting, architecture and the endless canals filled with gondolas.

Venice unbeliavably stretches across 117 small islands, which explains all the canals!

Piazza san Marco - Venice's public square, crowded at the best of times

Biblioteca Marciana

St Mark's Campanile

Gondola ride

Some gondolas even had singers on board playing the accordion, so cute!

They had so many restaurants and boutiques that you could access via the water too, loved it...

 They had beautiful masquarade masks everywhere I looked

Lunch time

Overloaded on pasta during my Italy leg of the trip...

OohLookBel - I loved it too, didn't notice the pigeons but did notice the crowds!

sugarpuffi - So cool, and the tiramisu was good too

Vivian - awww, the gondola ride was fun, but had to sit quite still because the gondola shifts with any kind of movement!

Bang and Buck - Thank you :) It was amazing!

Dolly - I was well and truly pasta-ed out by the end of Italy haha

Wow Venice, your photos are beautiful. Sadly the only gondola ride I've been on is at The Venetian in Las Vegas. Lol.
