An Italian Road Trip

Venice3

        All of the seemingly never-ending cold gloomy weather in New York lately, has me dreaming of planning another vacation. So the next best thing has been reminiscing about my travels last fall and pouring through all my travel photos. For a long time I had dreamt of visiting Venice, and that dream came true last November. Through an interesting turn of events, and a last-minute car rental, my cousins and I planned a weekend road trip through northern Italy. Along the way, we found a designer outlet mall, dinned in a quaint trattoria, sampled authentic gelato, and became immersed in centuries of history and culture. Perhaps my favorite part of the weekend was walking through Venice’s narrow side streets, shopping the charming shops, and stumbling upon a hidden gem of a jazz bar, before eventually making our way to the Piazza San Marco. Once in the sprawling piazza by the water’s edge, surrounded by the captivating Venetian Gothic architecture you may even feel like you’re in one of Turner’s dreamy paintings.
