Travel Blogs from Venice
... would want a bunch of tourists in my wedding pictures, but I guess that's what photo shop is for. The Spanish Steps were for the most part the last thing we really needed to see tourist wise in Rome, so after we had walked around the area for quite some time we began to just relax and be at peace and really let ourselves enjoy the city of Rome, without worrying about the next thing we needed to do or see.
Italy is one of the most visited and popular countries ...

We were very proud of this achievement and some amazing kebabs that we bought in the supermarket with little sausages on...however, some not so amazing “beer” which we realised after buying 2 cases is non alcoholic! Oops! Its now half 9 and i’m just finishing writing up today’s blog... the rain started about 10 mins ago... had to quickly ...

My Italian is getting better and I am trying to use it as much as I can. The people around are so lovely and everyone seems very friendly.
We made it safely to Florence, which is where we are now. The next place where we get good internet I will be able to discuss my love affair with this city.

... We had to catch the train in Nice to Monte Carlo, Monte Carlo to Ventimiglia (on the border of Italy), then we had a 4 hour train ride to Milan. Then we had 9 minutes to connect to our train that would take us to Venice.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Marconi Venice
It was steps away from the Rialto Bridge which was ideal for us. I hear people complain about all the foot traffic but we had no problem with that. The rooms were just big enough for the three of us and the bathroom was surprisingly large. The staff was nice enough, we didn't have any problems with our stay so didn't interact with them much. The breakfast was ok, filled us up enough to head out and enjoy the sites.
