Venice is always amazing, but during Carnival it’s just something that is worthy seeing at least one time in life.
The celebration has officially started with the first Venetian Night, where a joyful procession of decorated boats, baloons and tricks of light have crossed the Canal Grande.
Colors, costumes, masks, cheerful processions of smiling people: that’s what you can see if you decide to visit Venice in these weeks.

STORM IN VENICE – DEBRIEFING
What happened on 12 November 2019?
On Tuesday, 12 November 2019, Venice was hit with an “acqua alta”, or high water, of 187cm. This was the highest level since the 194cm witnessed in 1966, which was the highest tide of all times for high water in Venice. Continue reading “HIGH WATER IN VENICE – DEBRIEFING, MOSE, HOW CAN YOU HELP”
You may not know that Venice is not only the city of water or enchanting landscapes, but also one of the most recognised places for its supreme education: we are talking about Ca’ Foscari University, a guarantee since 1868 and, by now, perfectly incorporated with the citizen reality.
Ca’ Foscari Univesity was founded 150 years ago by three Italian politicians: Luigi Luzzati, Francesco Ferrara and Edoardo Deodati.
The first, and nowadays, more prestigious faculties were economy and languages: as a matter of fact, the university’s purpose was to form merchants and business owners, but after years and years of changes and renovations, many faculties and different subjects had been introduced.

It was natural to choose Venice this summer, as my husband and I were looking for a short holiday. Actually, I bought tickets to Milano Bergamo Airoport before we even started to plan anything. So, after buying plane tickets, we googled how far the airport is from the centre of Milan and we were surprised — actually, the airport is situated right between the cities of Milan and Venice. That’s why we decided to visit Venice! We had four full days in Venice as we booked in advance a train in the early morning, to be sure that we could spend most of the time in Venice. Four days are not that much, but definitely enough to catch the feel of a city and see some highlights (don’t plan too much, Venice is a place to return again and again!).

Cari amici, ben tornati sul nostro blog.
Venezia vive di luoghi comuni: l’amore, la gondola, Rialto e i tramonti sono spesso gli stereotipi per eccellenza di questa fantastica città. Ma come diceva Nancy Kress, “A stereotype may be negative or positive, but even positive stereotypes present two problems: They are cliches, and they present a human being as far more simple and uniform than any human being actually is”.

Dear friends welcome back to our blog,
Venice is full of commonplaces: love, gondolas, Rialto and nice sunsets are the most abused stereotypes about this fantastic city. However, as Nancy Kress stated: “A stereotype may be negative or positive, but even positive stereotypes present two problems: They are cliches, and they present a human being as far more simple and uniform than any human being actually is”.
