With our first full day in Venice packed with colourful houses, fresh spaghetti and terrible attempts at learning the basics of Italian- Joe and I spent our last few hours covering as much ground as possible- with an agenda of spoon-thick hot chocolate and pillowy crusted pizza topping our last minute lists.

As I mentioned, Venice really is a city to get lost in. With crams of tourists lining each bridge and square, it makes all the difference to wander a little aimlessly and avoid the sea of selfie sticks and leisurely paces (it's the Londoner in me, I promise). So- with a few hours we attempted to be as aimless as possible (as much as you can be with an airport check in time and a cab home booked)- and made a beeline for Dorsoduro, and corners we hadn't properly had a chance to scope out.

With Caffè Florian satisfying our need for something sweet after hopping of off boat from our hotel- we quietly nestled in this regal cafe (which felt incredibly Parisian and Wes Anderson) before picking up the pace to while away our last couple of hours...

  4. I am so in love with your outfit Liv! These burgundy colours are just gorgeous and I love the frilly details of your jumper. It must indeed be hard to wander around Venice and it is apparently packed full of tourists all the time, but hopefully the city manages to keep its charm and unique vibe. I've read that going there really early in the morning is the best because you avoid the crowds and can enjoy the place almost to yourself!
