In Venice, the Sinking City

I felt it necessary to add "the sinking city" to my title because we experienced this first hand! As soon as we stepped into our hotel, I noticed the floor was a little, um, slanted. One side of the building's foundation was SINKING! I knew this would make for interesting times after a few drinks.

Still, Venice has a certain charm to it. And, I think Krystal put it best when she called Venice, "a parody of itself." So true! I felt like I was in an amusement park. But it was fo' real.

Take a look at this.

 And see...I found Pinocchio! IT IS A THEME PARK.

 St. Mark's Basilica 

Having been to Italy before, and being totally infatuated with Rome, Venice didn't charm as much as I expected it would. It can be done in a day, and should still be seen (OF COURSE), but it's not the best place in Italy. My heart still belongs to Rome! But second place goes to Verona, for which the next post will be dedicated (stay tuned)...


  1. I went to Verona, Venice and Lake Garda a long time ago and I thought I knew what Italy was about. Then, years later, I visited the South and I was like 'oooooooh... so this is what everyone was talking about'. I fell in love with the South.

    1. The south has heart!! (well, as far south as I went). I would love to go even further south!

  2. These pictures are wonderful. I love seeking cities like this that have just kept all the old buildings. That's nuts that you could notice obvious sinking!

  3. I'm shocked because Venice looks awesome, especially from these photos. It looks stunning!

  4. Funny, you're like the fourth person I hear saying this. "Venice is nice but not all that" is what I hear mostly. ;) I'm still loving these photos!

  5. Ah am sad to hear it's not all that. Ha :) Will still somehow navigate myself to Venice one day.

  6. This you post is absolutely fine about venice city is very beautiful and other images.
