VENICE : LOVE, GONDOLAS AND CARNIVAL

Photo de Venise en hiver.

I’m happy to be back ! A few days before Christmas, I stopped blogging to be able to really enjoy my friends and family in France. Then, I went to Tenerife for a few days, got back to Malta, and finally flew to Venice last week… So I haven’t written anything on here for a long time, but I am definitely back on track !
And I am going to write about my last travel in today’s post… Visiting Venice, especially during the Winter Carnival, is something I’ve always wanted to do. My boyfriend knew that very well, since he’s the one who offered me this trip for Christmas ! One of the best gifts I ever got, and without a doubt one of my best trips so far. I can’t stop falling in love with Italy these days !

We stayed there during five whole days, which is already enough to visit the city well. Contrary to our recent stay in Rome, where we had decided to visit as many places as possible in as little time as possible, we have decided this time to go at our own pace and not follow the usual tourist attractions. Therefore, we have only visited one museum (the Natural History Museum, that I strongly recommend) and we have spent our days strolling through Venice, only by feet (we didn’t take the vaporetto once). According to me, this is the nicest way to discover the city, and we have been able to visit every venetian area, without exception. Walking in the beautiful streets, drinking cappuccinos at the terrace of a bar, drooling in front of the pastry shops’ windows, finding delicious traditional restaurants… this was, for us, the key of this trip’s success.

We spent a great stay in a magical city, cradled by the lapping of the water in the canals and illuminated by its gorgeous Winter Carnival. For now, I will be sharing my favourite pictures from this trip to Venice. Next week, I will post a city guide in which you will be able to find some detailed advice as well as my favourite places : visits, restaurants, bars, shopping…

Next week, I will publish a second post about Venice, which will be more informative : I will write about the different areas of the city and what you can find there, places to go to do some shopping or to buy venetian souvenirs, places you need to see, and of course my best addresses (restaurants, bars, pastry shops…). Don’t miss this post if you are planning on visiting the city !
