Venice is a city for couples. As a single traveler backpacking Venice, I didn’t really enjoy Venice all that much. It was fun to wander the streets but I really wanted to be there with someone. It had romantic appeal and, as an expensive city, it was difficult to not spend a lot here. That being said, Venice is beautiful, historic, and has amazing food (especially seafood!). So, in honor of Valentine’s Day, I present Venice in photos, which will do the city more just than I can do!:

Local life in Venice
A romantic gondola ride in the city
Life on the canals!
….and more canals with colorful buildings!
…and finally, a little mood music:
Venice, Italy is a beautiful city. There are better budget destinations in Italy but Venice is worth a visit for its canals, historic architecture, meandering and maze like layout (half the fun of Venice is getting lost), and seafood markets.
