Venice is my favorite city in all of Italy and one of my favorite cities in all of Europe. My fascination with Venice began after I read the book, Death in Venice, by Thomas Mann. The book is thrilling and uncomfortable and romantic and intriguing. While reading the book, I could feel the humidity and stickiness of the hot, summer days in Venice. It is a mesmerizing book and one that everyone should read.

Venice is a photographers paradise. The colors are so rich and vibrant while the architecture is old yet intriguing. I could spend days photographing the city!

Snapshots of Venice via Wayfaring With WagnerI first visited Venice during April 2012 with my cousin. We ended up staying on the island of Lido which I would highly recommend. We were outside the hustle and bustle of Venice yet it was easy for us to get to the main islands. Plus, because we went in March (low tourist season), our hotel was right on the water (and we had a ocean view) and it was fairly cheap! The weather of Venice is perfect in early April. I wore a lightweight jacket and there were hardly any tourists in the city.

It was overflowing with tourists and the temperatures/humidity was unbearable. I felt like my clothing was sticking to me the entire time. I would definitely recommend not going in the summer months!
