In February 2013 we spent a few days in Venice, Italy, during our round the World trip.
I was in two minds about visiting Venice. I feared it was going to be crowded, tacky, and the food would be overpriced and disgusting. To my surprise we had some of the best budget meals of our entire Italian travels.
Venice was busy as expected, but we went to see the main sights early in the mornings, and explored the lesser visited back streets and canals at midday. These were particularly good for restaurants serving decent food at reasonable prices, which no explains why they were full of locals and no tourists.
From being a place I almost dreaded visiting, and only really decided to visit because Mrs.R had never been there before, Venice became the jewel of our travels in Italy.
