A Vacation Itinerary: Athens to Venice
Your whole trip planned out, including what to see along the way.
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.
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.
