A very photo heavy post I know, one of the reasons why I couldnt post whilst in Venice like I'd hoped was because although there was wifi it was too slow to handle the large photo files!
Anyway, this was Day 1 of my trip to Venice and I can confirm two things, yes the City is even more beautiful than the photos and hell'yeah the men are hot! #italianstallion

The first photo is one of the first sights of Venice we saw after leaving the airport, I knew from then on things were only going to get more beautiful. It was honestly breathtaking crossing the canal on a water-bus, blue open water, the rainbow-painted City ahead and we were so lucky with the weather which was around 14 (Degrees C). I travelled in a Tee, jeans and Converse to keep it comfortable during the flight, I had a coat also but it wasn't needed once we arrived on land around 3pm.. I took a few photos and then we watched the sunset whilst drinking Pistachio hot chocolate outside a little cafe in Piazza san Marco, and planned the day ahead.

For dinner, we ate at a traditional Italian restaurant recommended to us called 'Trattoria Da Arturo'. It's expensive at £30 a main but well worth it if you want to exeperience true Italian cuisine and conversation. It does not look impressive from first glance, it is just a very small restaurant that hasnt had a refurb for what looks a good decade, but the food was cooked to perfection and the aromas that filled the air were sensational! The staff made us feel like we were dining as guests in their own homes, the conversations were flowing throughout the entire meal and at not one point did I think "Leave me to eat!" infact we stayed drinking Disaronno on the rocks with them until after closing and they gave us some great 'local' tips on what to see whilst in Venice.
And if what I've said so far doesn't appeal to you enough maybe the part where I mention Brad Pitt, Courtney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman and Kim Kardashian to name just a few have wined and dined here and theres a whole album of photos to prove it! So of course I assured the owner I would email him that final photo above to add to his collection once I'm famous ;)

I'll be back tomorrow with Day 2, hope you found this intersting..
