Venice is beautiful and very romantic but the entire island feels like one big tourist trap. I’ve heard people say that you can’t get lost in Venice because it’s so small, but we found that to be totally wrong. It’s like a labyrinth! The “streets” are so narrow and windy that after about 5 turns you have totally no idea which way you are traveling. Trying to use google maps on the iPhone is hilarious. That poor blue dot just never can quite figure out where you are; most of the time it thinks you are in the middle of a canal. But I guess that is kinda the point of Venice: get lost and wonder around, you’ll eventually find your way. I’m glad we went, but one day was totally enough for us.
