Destination: Venice, Italy

Interesting websites about the city: VeneziaUnica.it, TurismoVenezia.it and Venice-Tourism.com

Is it easy to navigate around the city? Actually not the easiest, especially if you haven’t been there before - so no. Venice consists of over a 100 islands all linked and connected together. This however adds to the charm and authenticity of the city. The canals, bridges and alleyways make every trip seem like an adventure, and a cool experience getting lost - but do so during daylight... 0 points.
