Is there anything more romantic than losing yourself in Venice? The world’s most magical city is a tangle of quiet streets, each instincts guide through the calli and the campi, over the city’s bridges and into its breathtaking churches. And seeing the view of the lagoon at with a story and a treasure to be discovered. The best means of transportation is your feet, so wear comfortable shoes and let your sunset is an unforgettable experience. Summer is a great time to visit, but it does get hot, but to take a break from the heat and refresh yourself, there’s always the Lido beach, one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in Italy.

It's difficult to wander around Venice as a tourist without running into picturesque spots whose beauty and singular charm takes your breath away. But, if you have a curious and careful eye, you can find new, less common ways of seeing the city from on high or on the water.
In November, the traditional month of "high waters" when many roads were flooded, you would see men going about with high rubber boots. For a few coins, they would carry people on their backs, taking them from one dry spot to another, or transport passengers in the carts used to carry goods and crates of fruits and vegetables.
Sometimes I like to play tourist in my own town. The camera strung around my neck let's me blend in with the colourful mass of summer tourists. According to the latest statistics, each year nearly 20 million foreigners peacefully invade the alleys and small squares of Venice.
There are few areas of the city that they don't get to these days, although it may be in smaller numbers than the crowds visiting the main tourists destinations like Piazza San Marco or the Rialto.
