I’ve been to Venice many times throughout my life and on occasion, alone. Venice is a romantic city especially at night, after many of the tourists leave. During the day I like to just pick up a panini and walk the sites (Rialto Bridge, Piazza San Marco, the Dorsoduro, the Guggenheim Museum). At night though I like to splurge so I’ll start off at Caffe Florian (inside so I can stare at the frescos) and enjoy a beautifully handcrafted martini and then head to a wonderful dinner accompanied by perfect red wine. This trip, I got to experience it all with my love. Hand in hand, we curved the alleyways and crossed the bridges to our favorite galleries, shops, museums, cafes….I was in heaven. Truffle heaven to boot.
