Our trip continues to Italy…

First stop was Trieste, then Venice, and finally Verona. We got to Trieste really late so we only had a quick view of the town in the morning. We spent a bit of time in Venice…it was nice nice. But, Verona…😍 Wow! In this post, we’ll quickly visit these three cities in Italy. But stay tuned for a closer look at Venice and Verona 😉

Fontana dei Quattro Continenti (Fountain of Four Continents) in the middle of the town square faces the gulf.

We made it to Venice!

Campo Sant’Angelo AKA the only place in Venice that had a restaurant that would let us sit and just have drinks (and with free Wifi). This was much appreciated after our group separated for the day and we couldn’t find each other 😨

St. Mark’s Square…Random story: At night, after finally getting a hold of our missing people (and before going to dinner), we had to change behind a column at St. Mark’s Square #awkward
Pigeons EVERYWHERE!!! Except when I tried, they ran away from me

OK, OK. One more because I just loved this little tree’s branches. It may seem gross to see gum and locks all over the walls at Juliet’s House, but it was actually somewhat magical.

Pasta at the market!! Did I mention that my checked bag coming back to the US was basically full of pasta and wine?? 😂

It’s not fair for Trieste since we didn’t get enough time there – I will go back! Venice, well, it’s still a place to visit before it goes underwater. But, it’s just a bit overcrowded for my taste. Verona, while usually too touristy for my liking, was very surprisingly charming and quaint.

As a whole, northern Italy was completely different from our recent stop at Plitvice Lakes, but still beautiful in its own way.

Can you guess which city was my favorite? Have you visited? What’s your favorite Italian city?
