Some of my favorite things about Venice: My first real gelato, the gondola ride (it was a must for Josh and I'm glad I gave in--okay crazy fact...did you know gondolas cost around 50-75K!!!) I loved our bathroom in the hotel (random but it's true), the entire thing was marble! Of course St.Marks square is amazing, and all of the hundreds of little bridges strategically placed everywhere...and I LOVED the glass blowing shops--Venice is where that all originated from. It really is one remarkable city! Not sure we will ever go back, but I am glad we at least went once in our lifetime :-).
This was a restaurant that a "local" told us about. So if you're ever in the area, this is THE place to dine! :-)
This was the entrance of our hotel...I had to snap a shot
