Travel Blogs from Venice
After leaving Innsbruck we joined the Brenner Pass to Venice. The Pass is one of the most important North-South passes in Europe and links Austria and Italy. The road is built in the same area that was used by the Romans when they traveled between Venice and Munich. What really amazed us during this three and a half hour journey was that every …
... Lots of lovely buildings to look at as well like St Mark's Basilica which we didn't go in as the line was too long but the outside was very nice. This was our last city in Italy so made sure to eat a final pizza and gelato! In the evening we had a meal at a Venetian restaurant with musicians and NINE courses - I only made it to ...
