Venice, The City Of Love
Venice, well known as city of romance, is a city without roads but only canals. It radiates an unique old, antique charm with its rippling canals, bridges, colourful glassy arts, and its glorious venetian history. The favourite part of our visit to Venice is definitely indulging in sunset on a Gondola. Up till now, we are still reminiscing the love we felt in Venice.
Tia mo, Venice!
Flying from Zurich and landed in Marco Polo airport via Swiss airline, we purchased ATVO bus tickets from airport to Piazzale Roma in Vernice. Our airbnb was located nearby Santa Lucia station which was about half a km from the bus drop-off place. FInding our airbnb was not easy because for visitors like us, every alleys and turns looked the same. We were so excited when checking in because our house was literally floating on water! Still early, we decided to stroll around the houses before hitting all the hot spots. Venice was already crowded early in the morning, probably due to its popularity among tourists as well as the locals trying to catch up with the tourists business.
Trying to coax the pigeons into standing on my arms but never successful because I have no food for them haha. Nonetheless, HP managed to capture a beautiful photo with his gopro.
Next to St Mark's square is the Saint Mark's Basilica, covered mostly in gold mosaics.

Murano or Burano?
Murano and burano are two famous islands yet they are distinctive in their own ways. Murano is an glass-making island, there are many glass-blowing workshops and demonstrations by the talents on the island which show you how the glass is heated and moulded into all shapes of art. Murano glass art is remarkable, if you are impressed, there are souvenir shops selling pieces that are local-made.
