For my last night in Venice, I treated myself to a Wine & Cicchetti Tour with Urban Adventures (hint: book via TripAdvisor/Viator rather than through their website and save $20 euros).
It was a beautiful way to end and recap my week in Venice, and at the end I was the only one who didn’t need assistance with directions back to my hotel. After having been there for a week, I was pretty familiar with the maze of streets and canals in the San Polo area. I even gave away my map to another couple from Buffalo, who was walking all the way back to the train station. It felt pretty awesome to head out of there like a boss, passing all the restaurants and sights I’d been enjoying all week. Sad to know it was my last look at the Grand Canal at night. I happened to look down a little street and saw the yellow sign of the restaurant we’d had our farewell dinner at the night before, and quickly ducked down to grab the shot. We’d missed it the previous night because when we came out, they’d already turned it off. So I was glad to snag that one last souvenir photo.
