Travel Journey of the Week: Venice

Venetian Parking LotI have a hard time deciding whether Paris or Venice is my favorite place in the world.  I think Venice is winning right now.  I’m hoping to tag on four days in Venice with my trip this summer so I can research for my book: Venice by Vaporetto.  I will be posting just as I did with Paris by Métro, but I will be focusing on the best sights and stops in Venice instead.  I can’t wait to start it!  I’d love to see your experiences with Venice.  Here is how you can contribute:

1. Each Sunday, a place will be set as the theme (it could be a city, landmark, national park, etc.)

2. If you are familiar with the place and would like to contribute, you will write a post and title it Travel Journey of the Week: Venice.

3. Your post can be any medium that works for you; videos, photos, descriptions, itineraries, personal memories, poems, ticket stubs, etc.

4. Finally, be sure to provide a link back here so everyone can connect and share their own take on the place: https://liberatedtraveler.com/2013/09/29/travel-journey-of-the-week-venice/

Travel Journey of the Week: Venice

This week I’ll share some of my artifacts from Venice trips since I’ve already shared my photos.  What do you do with your ticket stubs?

Here is a video for fun.  A free postcard will be sent to anyone who can tell me the name of the song playing in the background in the first scene.  I’ve always wanted to know what it is.

    I am in Venice right now! La Serenissima … It is a jewel, but because it is small, it cannot accommodate all the tourists, even now in the more off season. So, my vote would go to Paris still.

    Nice snippet. We stayed in an apartment near San Basilio in the Dorsoduro (about 15mins walk to San Marco). A much quieter part of Venice. Enjoyed the touristy stuff but then found much peace and beauty away from the walking masses. Venice is a life-size, crumbling photogenic museum. Never be over-whelmed by the tourists- turn left or right and you’ll find personal space and some real Venetian life, you will also be lost. regards Peet

    Here are some of my Venice posts if interested.
