My first time to Venice was in 2010 with a group of 30 art history students.
We were studying the Renaissance as it was in Venice and how it differed from their Florentine counterparts.
Venice is one of those special cities where you can see art in the exact same place it was intended to be hung hundreds of years ago.
I know it sounds cliché but I fell in love with Venice. And really, it is the trip that inspired me to write and blog. Four years later, 2014, I returned and rediscovered the city with my sister and partner in tow. I felt lucky to see their faces light up when they first stepped into the grand Piazza San Marco or when they saw the Assumption of Mary by Titian in the Frari Church.
For me it is a place to be shared and I can’t wait to return again one day perhaps with children of my own.
