Venice - the real Italy and something completely for itself

Venice is both classic Italian and at the same time something completely for itself. The buzz of history follows you through the alleys and canals of the beautiful city.

The best country in the boot country - Venice

Have you been in Italy? Or do you still have your first visit to Støvlelandet for good? I have been in Italy 17 times. The first time I visited this amazing country, I was 5 years old and was on 'drive yourself vacation'with the family to Lake Garda - known as Lake Garda in Danish. Ever since the first time I fell in love with Italy and have considered it my second home country.

I have also visited Venice - or Venice as it is called in Italian - and it is a must to take a walk past the city. Venice is located in northeastern Italy in the region Veneto, where the city is also the capital and has just over a quarter of a million inhabitants. But despite being an Italian city, it's like coming to a completely different country when you cross the bridge and enter this adventurous city.

Some might say that it is 'the real Italy'. Because it's like Lady and the Tramp with small streets, gondolas with singing, accordion music and a relaxed lifestyle. When you cross the first bridge from the mainland, the only engine sound you can hear is from the boats in the water. It is liberating to have to park the car outside the city, although it can be a bit expensive to stay in the large parking garages for an entire day. But it does, in turn, give an atmosphere without equal that few elsewhere in Italy can match.
