If you’ve got no idea where to go on holiday this summer, then look no further. Venice is your answer! It’s one of my four best cities to visit in 2016 – so, why not take a look at it in-depth? Wondering how you are going to truly gain a Venetian experience when on your travels this year? Here’s how. Check it out below!
Take Your Partner
Venice is one of the most romantic locations on the planet. The famous floating city is the ideal destination for two people to get away from all the hustle and bustle of home life. It’s not just for lovers, though, as there is something for everyone within the incredible culture that has been instilled there. Although, to gain a truly Venetian experience, don’t go on your tod! If you’re planning on going by yourself, then you might be in for a rough ride as a singleton. Expect to erupt with jealousy, because the Venetian country is jam-packed with happy couples who are head over heels in love with each other. With that in mind, make sure your partner comes with you to enjoy this truly special experience. You won’t get the most out of Venice if your loved one isn’t there to enjoy it with you!
Take A Gondola Ride
There are little to no cars in Venice, and one of the main methods of transport is actually the gondola. So, why not throw yourself in at the deep end and take a ride through the city on one? This is an incredibly romantic experience – this is one of the many reasons why your partner has to come with you! Some gondola rides will offer guided tour service. Whereas others might be more tranquil, quiet and let you and your partner take in the romance. Either way, this is an incredible experience. If you are looking for something romantic to do while away on holiday, then what better than this? I recommend taking out a gondola in the evenings, just as the sun is setting. The reflection of the sunset on the rippling water is absolutely gorgeous – something a true Venetian would not miss out on!
Never Have An Empty Stomach
With so much incredible Italian food to try while you’re out there, make sure that you never go hungry! Every rumble of your tummy is an excuse to sample some gorgeous, authentic cuisine. One of the best ways to make sure that you’re getting a truly Venetian experience is to do a food tour. Many companies offer up this luxury to travelers who are new to the city. So if you’re wondering what to do in Venice, then this is just one of the many great ways to experience everything that Italian food has to offer. The fun doesn’t just stop with your main meal, however. There are some gorgeous wines, including dessert ones, to sample over your stay, too. Top that off with a gelato from a local cafe and you really have had yourself some traditional Venetian cuisine.
It seems to me that the only way to truly experience Venice is to follow these steps. So, if you manage that, then you can fly home knowing that you’ve come away with an authentic Venetian experience. Happy holidays!
