“You know that Venice was once only a beautiful picture on the cover of my daily notebook? But now, here I am in Venice!” – Rizka Rahayu Putri. Ini kata saya waktu itu dalam hati. Terharu melihat bagaimana akhirnya bisa melihat Venezia tidak hanya dari sampul buku yang setiap hari saya pandangi, namun I saw it with my own eyes!
Stepping our feet on Venice, we could feel the good and peaceful ambiance there. We came there just in a good timing when the tourists did not flood this beautiful city yet. Two nights in Venice doing some lazy things were just perfect! After more than a week in Europe, we set our body to rest while sipping hot chocolate and enjoying the view of the canals.
No wonder that Venice must be on everyone’s bucket lists as this city offers not only the beauty, but also delicious food, friendly people, souvenirs at affordable price, history, and romantic ambiance. I highly recommend you to come to Venice with your beloved ones or you might get jealous LOL 😀
We spent 2 nights in Hotel Adriatico. This hotel is located only 5 minutes walk from Stazione di Venezia Santa Lucia and located at the second floor of the building (the 1st floor is a bag shop if I am not mistaken). We had to carry our heavy luggage to go upstairs 😥 The room was quite small, however this hotel’s location was really good and the price was also affordable. The breakfast was not so bad. Overall, we had a nice stay in Venice.
If you want to ride the gondola, prepare 80 euro for 1 boat (max 6 people). It was quite expensive for us who run out of money. We really hope to visit Venice again one day with our family to share the love this city has offered 🙂
