Visiting the “City of Water” is one of the best short travel experience in my life so far. It was somehow a fulfillment to my craving soul, longing to capture the enigmatic beauty that lies behind the floating city. I felt tremendously amaze by how it was built as I imagine the laborious work exerted back during the time of construction. With the wonderful scenery and spectacular landscape from different angle, due to slim time, I missed some interesting places which would probably suggest that I will have to come back again.
Where to stay: Alla Torre (booked from Booking.com) – 15 mins walk from Sta. Lucia train station on Cannaregio District. Newly renovated apartment with the touch of modern Italian design and furniture. Clean and quiet. The apartment is run by a mother and son. Contact: Andrea +39 331 1029200 – the young Andrea is very helpful and accommodating.
Where to dine: With the complete set in the kitchen of Alla Torre apartment, buy healthy raw foods from a nearby supermarket and cook on your own. It saves money and it is healthy too. Don’t forget to grab a local-made wine to complete your Venice dinner experience.
