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!
