There is no doubt in my mind that my favorite place in Italy is Venice. There is something unique about it that I can’t exactly explain. Perhaps it is the feeling that I get when I walk around and see the ancient buildings, the gondolas and water. I can’t help thinking about the history of the place particularly when Venice ruled the region as a “City State” for almost 300 years.
While many other European cities claim to be like Venice (Amsterdam is known as the Amsterdam of the North), there is only one original. Walking around the city, you come across so many little alleyways that have a gem hidden in them. They all seem to have a uniqueness to them but fall into the classic Venice look and feel. This is just one of the alleyways that I fell in love with.
