As you may or may not know, im not the greatest fan of Venice. I know most people get ecstatic about visiting ‘the city of love‘ but crowds of tourists, pigeons and kitschy souvenirs just make me want to roll my eyes. In spite of that; i do visit Venice quite often, mostly to see the Bienale and during those visits i have managed to find neighbourhoods that have not been flooded by tourists and where one can still find that authentic feel of the city. In september, the girls wanted to experience the ‘real’ Venice so we set out to find those little /untouristy/ streets with /cheaper/ pizzas and enjoy some prosecco by the canals. Since dogs are so welcome eveywhere in Italy i even decided to bring Linda along and i think she enjoyed the trip as well.
