Venice is like a living piece of art floating on water! It’s a labyrinth of streets, narrow alleyways, and with no roads or cars you must navigate it on foot! It’s a romantic getaway for some, but with increased tourism over the last several years, you can easily fall into many tourist traps with over-priced dining and shopping. I’m not saying you shouldn’t come to Venice, I’ve loved both of my visits here, but if you’re planning a trip, you should be prepared in advance with some tips and tricks on how to have a fabulous trip and feel like a local, while sticking to a budget!
The romantic city of Venice, built on over 100 islands, is one of Italy’s must-see locations. Unfortunately, the city is sinking, and as sea levels rise, flooding is becoming more and more commonplace. Many believe that Venice will one day be entirely underwater, so we encourage you to go visit while you still have the chance!
