Venice, Italy



choose from my separate journeys in this country



venice & lagoon islands

Gondolas, Piazza San Marco and Grand Canal colour many people's perceptions of what Venice is but its lagoon islands offer escapism and the chance to feel more intrepid explorer than tacky tourist.


rome & pisa

Italy was our penultimate stop on our Inter-railing adventure around Europe and a chance to take in two of Europe's, and the world's, most famous sights: the Coliseum and the Leaning Tower at Pisa.


Every traveller should visit Venice at some point. It is one of the most iconic travel destinations in the world and almost entirely unique with its turquoise waters lapping against buildings in genteel decay.



Turin has a special significance for me being my first destination abroad as an adult and so represents the start of what has quickly become a life-long obsession with travel. Turin started everything.
