Last year in July, we went to Venice for a long weekend and I absolutely loved it!
It is an amasing place, it's beautiful everywhere! Every street, every corner is to be discovered.
It is busy but like any big town. Bare in mind it is very expensive as well but the pizzas are definitely a must! Something I love is that there are no cars, no motorbikes, only boats! You are constently surrounded by water and it is quite easy to get by as the touristy places are always indicated but you walk a lot though...We had a wonderful weather and I highly recommand it, there is no other place like Venice.
