Romantic Venice {Italy}

Our adventure continued on a short train ride (2 hours) from Florence to the most  romantic place in the world, Venice! We spent 1 1/2 days there and stayed outside the city, about a 20 minute bus ride from our Airbnb place.

We also did some planning on our own through books, videos, and travel forums. Travel Book We used […]

With the help of friends and online research we planned an adventurous trip – rented our own […]
