What we liked about it
here’s just a few ideas….

Did you know that it’s an island city located on 118 small islands (a little like Stockholm in Sweden).

Still not convinced? Here’s another one:
The Rialto Bridge puts you close to perhaps the best place for a takeaway lunch in the city…. a pizza place for the locals… making the most delicious array of pastries, pizza, olive bread… you’ll smell the place, before you see the queues… check out the above blog to find out more details
