Venice was everything I remembered and more... The charm and beauty of this place is absolutely unequal to anything I've ever seen!!! Every corner we turned, every bridge we crossed, revealed breathtaking views... This is a place where I did not mind getting lost...

Rialto Bridge

We stumbled upon the same hotel my husband and I stayed at during our honeymoon almost 18 years ago... This is what we could see from our room...

Feeding the pidgeons in the Piazza S. Marco was one of my kids favorite things!!

... sighing in the Bridge of Sighs...


  1. Ahhhh, Venice..could you imagine living everyday with such beauty? Did you make it to Murano too? Thanks for the pictures of one of my favorite places in the world.

  2. Looks wonderful, you are brave to take four children! I love the look on their faces in that one pic - like not another picture! LOL. We just got home from Spain and only took the 16yr old. He had many "near death" experiences..."mom, I am dying, I can't shop anymore!"

  3. When I looked at your first picture I "ooohed" out loud. They are gorgeous views. I HAVE to go. How was the smell? Was it as hot a Rome?

  4. Now I'm in some serious need for rose color glasses. I've never been. ALWAYS wanted to go. I'm jealous beyond words yet very greatful that you took time out to share such lovely photographs.


  5. Someday I plan to see this all for myself. In the meantime, Thanks for taking me there a wee bit early!! Gorgeous photos!

  6. What great photos Isabel. I love them all! What great memories for your kids too! Boy, they are having a busy year!

    Thanks for sharing! Looks like it's cooling down a bit in Washington, thank heavens.

    Have a great weekend!

  7. So romantic and beautiful! It's great that you are sharing these lovely views.

  8. Haven't been there in 33 years, but it still looks the same :) Thanks for the pics. How I miss Italy.

  19. Hi !!
    We went to Venice in February and I adored it so much we go back in September!!! Did you get to go to Cafe Florian?

  20. Okay, I am soooo jealous! Hubby and I were married in Venice and had planned a return trip this September. Work interfered with our plans so everything is on hold. Looks like you had a wonderful time and your photos are beautiful!
