Venice

Having been immersed in the dramatic sights and exotic tastes of the Mediterranean, I wasn’t convinced that there was anything that could parallel the experience, until I arrived on the shores of Venice. The Adriatic island is unlike anywhere else in the world. Nowhere else do boats replace cars and 12th century buildings line the canals to meet in a grand square.

Take a gondola ride in Venice

Traveling by gondola you will see the medieval buildings up close, touching the calm waters, for a one-of-a-kind experience that will relax even the most hardened traveler. To prolong the feeling, walk the cobble-stoned streets to shop for everything from Murono glass plates (made on the island of Murono just off the Venetian coast) to trendy Italian clothes.

    These are all great reasons to get the Athens. But for me, the history and culture of Greece and Greek mythology is the magnet that will draw me there. Of course, these are all valid reasons and each is the icing on the cake.

    I asked my girlfriend where she wants to celebrate her 26th birthday, and I guess she already read this article because she answered Southern Europe.

    Can you suggest a local food that we could try? A trip couldn’t be a complete journey without a taste of a local dish or snack!

    How much would be the Gondola ride? And how long does it take?

    Watching the sunset in Santorini while in a spa in Athens would be a dream. That’s a wow!

      I am working at night. I hate sunset actually it is my constant reminder that I have to leave home and go to work. I don’t want to go to Santorini then.

        Vacation is always pricey. If you want to enjoy your vacation, your budget should be much.

    I’m glad you featured the Southern parts of Europe. If you want something more of nature, then this is the perfect article for you.

    Europe is a blessed country because it has a lot of tourist spot. Planning to visit Southern part this September.
