Venice, Italy 134

After reporting on the Venice flooding in the last post I thought this amazing city deserved a prettier photo. Venice was remarkable, a beautiful conclusion to our recently Italy tours where we visited the Cinque Terre, Rome, and Venice.

Personally I found the Cinque Terre to be the most charming of our many stops on the European Rail Adventure thanks to smaller crowds and more wild lands and the beautiful hike between the five cities, but my daughter felt Venice was the highlight of the trip.

The Venetian labyrinth of canals and walkways makes for some of Europe’s most intriguing and wonderful strolls, though you also will find it’s very easy to get lost here, where few paths are straight and even many of maps seem to lead you astray. I found intuition combined with the many pathway painted signs to big locations seemed to keep us on track better than our map.

Still, getting lost in what many consider to be the world’s most beautiful city is fun and has some advantages. Around almost every turn there would be new shops, restaurants, and pretty canal scenes.
Thanks to Eurail Pass for helping to sponsor the trip!
