Venice's Murano glass is known for its unique and high quality and many shops specialize in selling the glass. Venice is known for its Carneval and the city excels in the skill of making masks. Bridges of Sighs Piazza San Marco is the city's top attraction The multitude of islands are attached by a network of bridges Venice is just as beautiful as I had imagined

Though it wasn’t easy to leave behind Florence, knowing we were headed to Venice made the departure a bit easier. Arriving in Venice was quite the shock since we were so used to dodging cars and people buzzing around in scooters, whereas there were only two methods of transportation in the city: by boat and by foot. Outside of the major tourists streets and locations, the city felt very intimate and quiet and wandering was an adventure since you never knew if  you were going to end up at a dead end facing the Grand Canal!

I&#39;m currently studying Architecture and minoring in Urban and Regional Planning (which has me even more excited to study abroad in Rome with its rich architectural history). As a lover of art, food, and adventure, I look forward to delving into the dynamic Italian culture and sharing my experiences!</span></p>
