Italy, June 2017: Murano & Burano Video Moments

Last up on our Venice trip is our Murano and Burano Video Moments. These two islands were an absolute highlight of our trip. Their colorful homes, small canals, unique bridges, and artistry truly pulls you in. Murano and Burano are an easy trip from Venice making it no brainer to visit (a mistake we made on our first trip to Italy in 2013). We loved getting lost wandering around and discovering new nooks and crannies. I'm a bit at a loss of words to how to describe how beautiful these little islands were so you will just have to take my word for it and watch the video yourself!

Back in June we took a four-day weekend to head back to Venice, Italy. On our first trip to Venice in 2013, we were unsure of the city and a bit run down from our whirlwind of a trip. Since then, we always knew we needed to return to give it a second chance and this summer we finally went for it. I think it's safe to say we full in love quickly and didn't want to leave this time around. From wandering along the side canals to checking out the Peggy Guggenheim Collectio and enjoying the 57th Biennale di Venezi, we enjoyed ourselves immensely. We can't stop scheming up ways to return to the wonderfully unique city. I can only hope a visit happens again soon!

Italy, June 2017: Venice

We visited Venice at the end of our whirlwind first trip to Europe together in 2013 (read here). We were exhausted by that point in our trip and we were coming off the high from visiting Cinque Terre, which still today ranks as one of our favorite places on Earth. Suffice it to say, we weren’t in the best mindset to enjoy the city. We’ve always thought back to that and wondered how we’d feel if we gave it a second, more proper chance. When we were trying to think of what to do with a four-day weekend we had left over after planning all of our other trips for the year, Venice floated to the top of our list of choices and we knew we couldn’t give up the chance! This time around we stayed in an Airbnb on Rio di San Boldo in the Santa Croce district.
