Trip Report Trip Report - Venice, Florence, and Rome

Jump to last reply

Our first visit to Italy was incredible. Venice ...was...amazing! I LOVED the pastel colors of the buildings, the iron work throughout the windows ,the architecture, and found the door knockers incredible artworks of their own. The area we stay in was away from the throngs of tourists so it was not overwhelming with people. We were there for only three days but had no plans so we took our time and just began walking! It was wonderful. I ate the best calzone I have ever experienced!

We walked long distances over the period of a day but it was worth seeing the beauty of Venice.One day it rained the entire day! We weren't about to let that stop us from walking on an adventure. We walked in that rain for 8 hours! I have to be honest, I think that was my favorite day of our trip. It was such fun day!

Our apartment however was not what we expected. It had plenty of room but it had a heavy musty smell which we quickly realized came from the bathroom. The bathroom ceiling had mold growing on it. It was not a good situation.i We were also left with one roll of toilet paper so we asked for more and were told we'd need to buy our own. Seiously??? I felt that was a little out of line. It seemed like once the landlord got the money, she wasn't interested in us anymore..

So we score the apartment : 2
