Venice was unlike anything we’ve ever seen! Venice, the world’s longest existing Republic, began with the Venetian lagoon offering a refuge for people fleeing the barabrians who conquered Italy after the fall of the Roman empire. It is a group of 118 small islands separated by canals and linked by bridges. It is located in a lagoon off of the Adriatic Sea. With it’s many bridges and narrow ‘streets’ and no vehicles of any kind at all, it was a really fun experience. We got lost several times but always found our way eventually with our trusty maps. It rained much of the time we were there but that just added to the adventure!
Thanks for looking in on us. We truly had the trip of a lifetime and hope to return to Italy again one day!
