Venice - the city of canals, gondolas and masks. The old buildings, the narrow lanes, the old churches, the bridges all add to the charm of it.
In every lane and by-lane there will be people eating and sipping their drink in open air restaurants.The most prominent character of Venice's streets are its musicians. Their music can stir your soul and actually make you stop for a moment.
The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of Venice, is not it's narrow lanes or the canals or the Gondolas. It's the beautiful soulful music that flows through it's lanes.Coming from Paris, Venice suddenly felt a lot cheaper.In paris, the only thing you would get in 1E or 2E is beer. But here in venice everything from pizza to collectibles to copies of famous brands seemed within reach.
It is the city of love. Venice has an old world charm. If Paris is the arm candy of a man that he wants to show off to his friends, Venice is the true love of his life which he fell for as a teen.
Walking through the lanes, I was transferred to a different age.
