Venice by Night

Venice at night is a beautiful time to explore

Exploring Venice at night is somehow even more magical than during the day. With its famous canals shrouded in darkness, an air of mystery and romance takes over. All of your favorite Venice, Italy landmarks are lit up and more beautiful than ever. I first arrived in Venice in the evening, so my first taste was after dark. Explore Venezia by night with me and see why I fell in love with the city at first sight.

    Your post reminded me of when me and my husband (then my boyfriend) were staying in Treviso and just took a train in the evening for Venice! It’s really beautiful, and I wish I had more time to explore Venice by night! Thanks for sharing!
