Seeing Venice is definitely one of the highlights of my “year” abroad. The city is gorgeous. It is also crawling with tourists and tourist shops. I think it’d be a pain to live there, though we did stumble into a few quiet, residential areas that were quite nice.
Venice is so beautiful. I wish a had a friend there that I could visit and who would show me more local haunts. It seems like such a wild place to live, but from what I hear not many Italians know other Italians living there. It is a small place. I know a guy from the mainland near Venice. He’s really nice.
I spent three days in Italy, and I loved them. There’s so much to take in, and it’s all so beautiful. The people were nice too–no run-ins with “typical Italian men” or whatever people complain about. The exception would be this one somewhat racist guy we talked to who thought I was twelve.
