We moved to what appeared to be a rental house the next day. My aunt had done a pretty amazing job at finding a place. It’s massive! The one downside is the mosquitoes (but that’s a problem anywhere in Venice). She’s a very experianced traveller so her advice has been really handy too.
We spent a while walking around and just checking the place out. It has a nice ambiance, but it is very touristy. I can hear more English being spoken than Italian by the passers-by.
I’d always wanted to visit Venice for two main reasons; firstly the canals and my interest in boats, secondly the badass Roman history and culture the city has. I saw a lot of the former and little of the latter, but it was still great. I wish I had a bit more time to check out Rome or somewhere in Italy with some more historical stuff about the Roman Empire, as that has always fascinated me.
