Venice’s Top 3
Venice is not called the “Queen of the Adriatic” for nothing. This floating island has been a European favorite destination for centuries. Venice is small, serene and quiet (unless it’s Carnival season!) and offers some of the greatest photo opportunities a traveler can ask for. Tiny winding alleyways, draping clothing on drying lines and gondolas aplenty create an atmosphere that is unlike any other European city. Venice is worthy of a visit regardless of the season. If you’re heading to Venice this winter, here are three of Venice’s best that you should be sure not to miss.
Enter our EuropeanWinterness contest this week to be entered to win a Conquest Dyad Tandem inflatable kayak, inspired by Venice. You’ll also be entered to win the grand prize of a trip to Europe for two on a nonstop Delta flight to Amsterdam! Head to http://europeanwinterness.com and enter daily. Read more »
