When we decided to embark on a road trip through Italy, we had no specific plan. We picked locations we wanted to see but had no limit on how long we’d stay in each place. That’s the fun of travelling in a camper. You stay as long or as short as you want. We also visited a few places we hadn’t even heard about or planned to visit. I highly recommend not using highways when travelling through Italy. Not just Italy, any country. When you choose highways, you can’t get surprised on your trip. You will only go from point A to point B without any chance of stumbling upon a village or a medieval town you hadn’t originally planned to visit. Yes, the drive may be longer (at times, but not always) but you will get to see the country, not just the cities. Explore! Enjoy!
Our first stop was beautiful Venice. It’s only 7 hours from Belgrade or hours from Rovinj, which was our previous stop. We arrived at night, so we waited till the next morning to visit this majestic city. It’s definitely unlike any other place you will visit. I’ve heard before one day is more then enough to visit this gorgeous city but I will highly disagree. If your plan is to rush through it just to take a few pictures, then maybe a day is enough (though you will be exhausted as it still covers a large area). But if your plan is to really explore the city and get lost in the streets, enjoy a meal or two, experience Venice at sunrise, take a boat ride on the big canal or take a gondola ride through smaller canals (which I highly recommend, despite your opinion that this is too touristy), then you will need at least 3 days. I assume the city is too crammed with tourists in the summer. We were there in October and it was still packed, so I am glad we didn’t come in the summer. It was still warm enough but not hot. Though it was busy, you didn’t have to bump into people as you walked, which happens in the summer months, in full season.
And if you’re wondering if you can wear heels when visiting Venice, the answer is Yes! There are no unwalkable cobble stones, so you won’t twist y our ankle if you wear heels. This is the outfit I wore on my second day in Venice. It was a foggy morning and I was a little chilly in this outfit, but couple of hour later, sun came out and I was worn again.
I hope you enjoy the outfit and the pictures.
