    Fascinating read. Never would’ve guessed that Venice is actually not the perfect, romantic spot to visit in the summer, so definitely would take the suggestion to go a different time of year! Also great tip on where to eat! Gnocchi is a personal favorite of mine too 🙂

    I resisted going to Venice for ages since I’d always heard how crowded/hot/humid it was in the summer, and crowds plus heat turns me into a crazy person. Not fun. But finally a couple of years ago I booked a long weekend there right at the beginning of January, and ahh, bliss. This was the Venice that I had imagined. Quiet, mysterious and foggy in the mornings, and… freaking freezing cold. I have never felt so cold in my life, but I also packed a woefully inadequate coat because I assumed it couldn’t possibly be that much colder than Rome, right? Wrong, obviously. I will definitely return to Venice, but only in the depths of winter when tourist avoidance is totally possible!

    (Side note: I agree that spritzes are not as great as they’re made out to be. They look sweet and delicious and they’re… so bitter! I’m slowly learning to like them a bit more, but for now they remain more gross than great. For a spritz variation that’s actually not disgusting, try the Hugo Spritz, with elderflower liqueur. Sweet and refreshing!)

    Thank you for blogging your experiences. I have been going through every article you have on Europe, and have yet to find the one in the title… Rome ^_^ Going there for our honeymoon in July. You two are travel- and relationship-goals. Thanks again!
