My main reason for going to Venice after Munich revolved around flights. I’d already decided that I would be going to Iceland via London, so I really just had to follow-up Munich with a city that had cheap flights to London. Knowing that I wanted to see a bit of Italy, I chose Venice, due to the fact that it’s a pretty unique city. The train ticket from Munich to Venice Santa Lucia (the railway station on the main island, connected by bridge) was only around $65 US dollars, so I figured it would also be a cheap way to see some of the alps!
Near Innsbruck in Austria, a city that I want to visit someday.

Random canals and alleyways are everywhere. It’s super easy to get lost, but equally easy to find your way back to your destination once you’re on a main pathway.
Even at night, Venice is a city filled with visitors. But once you step off the main paths, it’s easy to find beautiful scenes of normal (and quiet) Venetian life.
