In the summer of 2012 I went on a cruise with my mum. We cruised from Barcelona, around Italy, up to Dubrovnik, and back.
I don't know about you, but I'm one of those travellers for whom food is a key thing I need to experience. And I like to eat where the locals eat.
On my second day in Venice, I discreetly followed a goldolier into a small family-run restaurant.
Well! I had the best spaghetti con vongole of my life, with wine, and a heavenly serving of tiramisu, for around 12€ — and even if I wanted to tell you where it was, there was no name out the front that I can recall. I wonder if I'll be able to find it again next time I'm in Venice...
Have you been to Venice? Where did you eat?
Venice 10 years ago and now 👇
Exactly 10 years ago I’ve visited Venice for the first time. It was my first trip to Italy.
Our guide gave us 2 hours of free time and I hoped they would past as fast as possible. It was rainy and cold, the food was too expensive for a student on a tight budget. And when I finally made it into our touristic bus I couldn’t happier to leave for the next city on the plan.
Before going to Venice this time I wished so much it would be different. I packed some sandwiches to take with me, took my camera hoped for a good weather. And I wasn’t disappointed. Exactly 10 years later it was cold but sunny. The city was not too crouded and the food didn’t seem that expensive anymore.
I usually don’t like visiting same places twice, but after 10 years it seems like I have never been there before. In 10 years I’ve changed so much that It might be true. Don’t you feel the same way?
