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!
How to Experience the Best of Italy and Croatia in 10 Days
Croatia has been on our bucket list for some time, but we didn’t realize how much cheaper it would be if we flew to Milan first (note: your mileage may vary depending on flight prices at the time of booking). This itinerary starts with 4 days in Italy, making Milan our home-base and taking day trips, and then heads over to Croatia for the remainder of the trip.
