I once worked in Venice for half a year and fell in love with this magical city. It's an important place for me, and I want to share it with my family. April is such a nice time to go since it's neither too crowded nor too hot, and the wisteria is in full bloom.
My two children were the best travel and sketching companions. We walked for miles exploring remote parts of the city and loved riding on the boats around the lagoon.
The weather was perfect. For two days it was clear enough to see the entire range of snowcapped alps across the horizon to the north.
We had such a great time, and I want to return again soon.
Farewell, Venice. A dopo!
