It was our time to leave Florence and head to Venice! Venice looks stunning in pictures and I was quite sure it wouldn't be as beautiful in real life as most pictures are edited right? Well wrong ! Venice is as beautiful as every picture you've seen.
We again headed straight to our Airbnb, now Venice is expensive! Our Airbnb was a bit away from the main attractions called Castello, a homely area. We took a little time in figuring out our transport there and we made a mistake with booking a one way ticket , we should have got a full day pass (which we did later) .
We were ready to start our day, I have seen so many perfect Instagram posts from Burano that I just had to go there, even though we only had one day in Venice.
We headed straight to Burano, got off at the wrong station 🙄. To get to Burano you need to change boats in Murano , we got off at the wrong station and had to walk to get to a station to catch the boat to Burano. Now Burano is a really small island easily walkable. We walked around , explored took millions of pictures and then setteled down to eat. We had a seat food spaghetti and fried mixed sea food. Not going to lie, it was the most expensive meal of our holiday but it was worth every bite. Also not to forget house wine. When people say that wine is cheaper than water in Italy , they are really not lying. After our meal we walked around a bit more bought some souvineers and then gelato. There is this flavour called stracciatella and it's creamy vanilla with choco chips I think, it's delicious!
We took our boat back to Venice, it is almost 2.5 hours so we couldn't really dilly dally.
I had read about this book store in Venice called Libreria Aqua Alta which loosely means water library. It's a very cool space where (I think) most people only go to take pictures. We did find a beautiful cat and everyone was obsessing over it!
