Although Italy isn´t located far away from Germany, it´s one of these destinations I love to go back at least twice a year. After a two hour flight it feels like being thousands of kilometers away from home, surrounded by a unique combination of italian life style and weather.
One of those cities, I cant get enough of, is Venice. Due to the fact that most parts of the town haven´t changed since the 16th century together with it´s transience, you will fall in love immediateley after arriving.
One of those spots I spend most of the time when I´m back again in Venice is the Piazza San Marco. During the daytime you will be surrounded by hundreds of tourists. If you really want to have a moment of pure joy, it´s necessary for you to get up early for a lonely walk across the Piazza, followed by an amazing view up to Le Stanza del Vetro.
Numerous gondolas with their colorful fittings and seat covers drop anchor along the Canal Grande in front of the place I previously described.
But, if you let your eyes wander to the right, in the direction of the neighbouring island, you will have a look up to the baroque church Santa Maria della Salute.
During my last stay in Venice I decided again to take a time out by walking along the Piazza San Marco followed by a silent moment in front of the Canal Grande, while watching the sunrise together with one of my best friends at a time when most tourists usually are still sleeping or having their first cup of coffee.
Dressed in a sweater from the french brand Orcivall, combined with a two tone overall and striped shoes by Espadrij I´m thrilled to share with you my favorite spot.
