24 Hours in Venice / by Seyi Adejori

Hello fabulous people!

The beautiful city of romance, amazing food and breathtaking views. I landed in Venice, Italy while I was solo travelling it was a destination I have always wanted to see so when the opportunity came up I jumped at it. The city was so beautiful and filled with a rich sense of history and culture. The colourful buildings, the rich blue ocean, gondola drivers dressed in black and white striped uniform, Italian voices in the air and the absolutely amazing Saint Mark's Basilica made me feel so warm inside. Saint Mark's Basilica is the church in St Marks Square, it was stunning!  It is known for its extravagant design and luxurious interior, the church is nicknamed the 'Church of Gold' you can view many ornaments made of gold, emeralds and rubies.  I sat in the church for about thirty minutes, said a little prayer and just did some reflection, I felt so at peace. Then I went to the top of the church to view St Marks Square in all its glory and I was not disappointed. 

While in Venice  I consumed three different types of gelato ice-cream in a row and I have no regrets. There are many things to do while you're in Italy such as go to St Marks Square, ride a Gondola and  eat your heart's content in Italian goodness. Italians know a thing or two about food, everything tasted delicious. Venice is definitely a tourist destination, it was full of different types of people which is amazing but it is always good to be aware of pickpockets. Venice can be pricey as it is eighty Euro to ride a Gondola, which was one of the things I wanted to do but could not stomach paying 80 euros by myself however, if you can find people to accompany you on the ride or you have a travel buddy it should be on your must-do list. 

Unfortunately, I did not have a lot of time to spend in Venice, Italy so I did not get to see and do everything I wanted, but I wanted to share my photos from the trip so you can see the city from my eyes. I highly recommend everybody to visit Venice, it is truly a sight to see.
