A Day In Venice

As I told you, this time we have time to visit Venice. And there it is my first advice: DO NOT GO THERE BY CAR.

It's expensive, traffics is a nightmare, you have to park outside the city and then take a boat or a water taxi. So if you are coming from Milano take a train and for 35-60 euro (if you travel regular or first) and you will be in the center, but less hassle.

The city is nice, but expensive, so if you plan to enjoy it, prepare some thousand euros for a nice weekend.

The best Venice is The Grand Channel, and moving there requires a water taxi or some Gondola (that are expensive, but not a rip off as we expected).

The little streets are plenty of shops with stupid stuff that you don't need - if you have coming from Milano, you have already bought a 1,000 euros jacket, so avoid those streets.

Too many tourists and too many rip offs (like a coke bottle at 5 euros) made that what started excellent ended badly.

At six o'clock I was dying about getting out of that giant tourist trap and getting into my awful car.

Again AVIS cheated us and a nice Alfa Romeo
 turned into a horrible Lancia Delta. Pure crap

They were filming a movie, that's the reason for the old costumes

More Milano

More pictures from Milano. First one is "Il Duomo" a nice Gothic Cathedral made from "Marmole Bianco". Try to visit if in a sunny day to admire the nice windows from the inside.

Piazza dil Duomo is a nice place but it's normally very crowded and a good advise is to be aware of your belongings all the time.

All the restaurants are expensive, and the food is not the best of town, but if you are on a budget, try the Autogrill close to "La Rinasente" and of course pay a visit to this famous department store.

This year during summer sales reached 70 % off even in Montenapoleone a Via de la Espiga (one of the most exclusive and expensive streets of the world)

We went - again- to Milano, and spent there a week. This winter was not so cold there, so we missed some snow. Still we managed to visit a lot of places that we miss in our past visit.

Additionally we got some extra time to visit Venice, but that day i missed my camera. But don't worry everything has a solution, so I borrowed father's bunny to take some pictures.
