“You’re going to get lost in Venice regardless, so stick your map in your back pocket, forget about it and just wander.”
Our tour manager couldn’t have been more right.
This was one of the narrowest alleyways we went down when we had lost ourselves in a seemingly deserted part of busy Venice.
The atmosphere changed completely as we walked around these eerily silent alleyways.
I’d give a more exact location, but even with our map I still had no idea where this was taken – fifteen minutes of exploring the alleyways of Venice and you’ll probably find it.
We didn’t see a single other person aside from a man in a long trench coat who was behind us one minute and in front of us the next. We wandered around for a little while, and enjoyed the tranquility of the quieter canals but before we knew it we’d been channeled back into a busy square.
This is what I love about Venice. Around every corner you are greeted by beauty, even after walking through the shadiest of alleyways. I spent all day lost in Venice and I have no doubt I’ll be lost all day if I go again with Chloe. My boyfriend informed me this morning that he knows his way around Venice relatively well now – it took him five trips there to achieve this though!
