In Venice there are canals instead of roads and boats instead of cars. Canals are like little rivers running through Venice. Canals are in all different sizes.
The biggest canal is called The Grand Canal. The Grand Canal is very busy with boats of all sizes, because it is like the main road.
On the canals there are boats that are called gondolas; there are lot of gondolas. Gondolas are very fancy and are expensive (that’s why we didn’t go on one).
Once we saw a dog that was swimming in a canal and it nearly got run over by a gondola! It is very romantic in Venice, except when gondolas nearly run over dogs.
In Venice there are lots of churches, they are like on every second street. I mean canal!
We went to the main square, Piazza San Marco, and there is a big church that is really beautiful because it has lots of gold and blue carvings and turrets and decoration. Tip: get there early in the morning because there aren’t many people.
There are lots of glass shops in Venice and I got a glass owl and dog. The dog is for me and the owl is for my friend Matilda.
There are also lots of shops selling masks. I got a mask and my sister got a mask too.
The thing I liked most in Venice was sunset walks. That’s when it’s the best time to take pictures.
