After a long day visiting Venice and strolling around the cutest little places, we got ready for a wine night on a boat. We headed to the Jewish quarter to have a sense of how it was like and then, famished, headed to a restaurant. I had pizza and it was too good, duh!
After getting our Prosseco, an Italian white wine that sparkles a bit, we sat in the little wooden boats and we were ready to drink! We purposely started our night early to not come home too late since we had no WiFi and a bad sense of orientation, therefore getting home at midnight was playing it safe for us.
Little did we know, the place was dark, we didn’t know where to go and getting back to our place was going to be one big challenge. Around midnight, like mentioned above, we started going and quickly got frustrated that we couldn’t find our way! We passed by the Piazza San Marco at least 10 times from every single corner with no sense of where we needed to go. We asked people in the streets but around 2 am, everyone was starting to go to bed and we were left alone surrounded by bridges and water all around.
We really were desperate and sleeping outside was part of our plan at this point. Around 3 am, all our phones died and we just sat down and all looked at each other angry, tired, but still laughing. We got back up, decided this time we needed to find our apartment! After screaming at one another, walking into rats, cats and drunk people, we found our apartment. Getting into bed at 4 am NEVER felt so good and this was one hell of a good memory!
Have you ever gotten lost in Venice? I wouldn’t be surprised!
