Good morning everyone ~
If you’re in the UK I hope you are enjoying some cooler weather after the record breaking high temperatures last week. Not great when you don’t have air conditioning…!
On a better note, the week before last I spent 5 days in Venice with my friend Tamsin and we did so much and took a lot of photos. So, I thought I’d share some of my favourites with you here~
On the first day we had breakfast at the worlds first known cafe – Florian Cafe. I had orange juice with a roast vegetable croissant 🥐 . They had a live classical band playing well known tunes while we ate 🙂
When we arrived from the airport (after a day of cancelled flights 🥲) we were too tired to eat out so made some tomato pasta with Parmesan cheese and sat on our private balcony at our apartment, with a bottle of Merlot, in the warm air (soo good).
We explored Doge’s Palace – once the centre of Venetian power
Had to go on a gondola ride (how can you not when staying in Venice?!)
Where we were staying was very close to Venice’s central hub, St. Marks Square. The streets were jam packed with designer shops, I couldn’t believe how many there were! I’ve never been anywhere where there were so many designer stores in one place (Hermes, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Dior etc). No wonder the rich and famous come to Venice…
This was the nicest tiramisu I’ve ever tasted <3. It was a Nutella tiramisu and I got it from the birth place of tiramisu! How cool?!
This was taken at the Peggy Guggenheim Exhibition. It had the biggest collection of world famous art I’d ever seen in real life – including Jackson Pollock.
One night we couldn’t finish our wine at dinner so decided to take it back to our apartment…one man thought it was very funny we did this and laughed at us very loudly as we left the restaurant…haha!
I loved Venice, and can’t wait to see even more of Italy in the future. I really want to go to Lake Como, Milan and the Amalfi Coast ❤
