Hello friends! We’re finally moving on from Barcelona and onto a new and exciting adventure in Italy, starting with the most serene city of Venice! We’re so excited to explore this most dreamlike city with you for the next 2 videos! Make sure to tune in next week for Venice Part 2!
0:00 – Intro
0:20 – Arriving in Venice
We arrived in Venice coming in from Barcelona late at night and we were greeted with an incredible foggy Venetian night that oozed all sorts of magical movie set vibes.
3:14 – Piazza San Marco (St. Marks Square)
The historic centre of the Venetian Republic is a sight to behold. The square is home to beautiful St. Mark’s Basilica, the towering Campanile di San Marco, the Palazzo Ducale (Doge’s Palace) and countless other gorgeous buildings and museums. Piazza San Marco is a must-see when in Venice and there is so much to learn about the interesting history of the Venetian Republic.
5:20 – Trattoria alla Rampa
A great traditional Venetian restaurant at the very eastern end of the more local feeling Castello district, this is a great restaurant to dine away from the hordes of tourists if you’re willing to make the trek there. The name is a reference to what used to be a boat ramp out front and you’ll also find the last remaining floating produce market boat in Venice right in front of the restaurant. We got ordered some great pastas and Venetian dishes such as the Black Squid Ink Pasta, mashed salted Cod and Polenta and Venetian style liver. An incredible spot that’s frequented by locals that is sure to impress your tastebuds.
10:40 – Fried Land
Venice is infamous for being an expensive place to both stay and eat and so for dinner we opted in for a budget-friendly meal at Fried Land. As its name suggest they specialise in all sorts of delicious friend seafood but they also have some of the most bang for your buck mouth-watering pastas in Venice. If you’re not too fussed about getting traditional Venetian food but still want some great, cheap Italian food then Fried Land is your spot.
