So after spending a day in Milan, Ste and I then got a train and boat trip to Venice. I always say how beautiful Italy is and Venice definitely exceeded expectations. You really get a feel of the culture with the contrast of huge, beautiful buildings and then the cobbled alleyways with little boutique shops. There was the best of both worlds – you could grab an ice cream from a small parlour and opposite would be a huge Prada shop. It was like walking through a maze with the canals winding through Venice. Going on a Gondola (which I may or may not of kept calling a Granola by mistake) was such an amazing experience. It’s a very romantic place and we finished our trip off with a lovely meal in a restaurant on the edge of a canal with flowers and lanterns hung above us.
