Here's a good general rule: If you don't get lost, you're not doing it right. I loved visiting Venice on my study abroad! And this is definitely true, you will get lost, but what better place to be lost in?
Venice, Italy looks to be the loveliest place. Doors and windows everywhere. It is just so whimsical. I hope that I get the chance to visit. Next January, when I plan to take ECON in Italy, I want Venice to be a city I see.
