Venice Travel Guide

Q: Which are the best places to travel in Europe?
A: Big continent, big question... but given Mount Vesuvius has been active recently, we are going to put Sicily as our number one European destination this month.

eric jolliffe says:
"All your preconceptions go out of the window on your first sight of venice. the light coruscating off the water of the grand canal splashes off the renaissance buildings which line it and bring a new meaning to colour. the rialto, the maggiore church all seem larger than you ever expected. your first view of st mark's square and the basilica make you want to rush for a paint brush, even if you have never painted in your life. away from the grand canal itself the side canals give you an intimate insight into what life is like for the everyday venetian. washing hangs haphazardly on the walls, neighbours lean out of their windows and hold conversations but the light is still there impossible to escape. at nightfall when the day trippers have gone the city takes on a new appearance, the subdued lighting will allow you to imagine what venice was when the city was one of the most powerful in the western world, the power reflected in the grandeur of its buildings. once you have been to this city you will be dragged back inexorably time and time again and each time there will be something new for you to discover."
