The rumours are true – Venice IS more romantic than Paris!
I love it.
We paid a huge sum for lunch (silly) and a huge sum for a gondola ride (essential) and had a lovely day exploring winding streets, tiny bridges, canals, shops; as well as the usual people watching and taking photos.
Apparently many buildings are vacant (though anything with plants in the windows is not, according to our gondolier!) because rent has gone up to around €4000-€5000 per month. The average Italian wage is €1200 per month! Someone who was born in Venice can’t necessarily afford to live there as they did as a young adult.
