St. Valentine’s Day in Venice

Love keeps me alive only to enable me to die again
                                                 Giacomo Casanova


Venice, with its romantic and hidden spots surrounded by the wonderful lagoon landscape, is the city of love and lovers.

Here are five romantic places and off the beaten path where you can hold hands admiring the beauties of the city of water: the portico of the Abbazia de la Misericordia overlooking the Rio della Sensa in Cannaregio; the Ponte dei Miracoli, near the beautiful Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli in Cannaregio; in Dorsoduro along the Fondamenta degli Incurabili, Zattere, overlooking Saint Mark basin and the Giudecca island; Campo della Confraternita next to the Church of San Francesco della Vigna in Castello; Campo San Nicolò dei Mendicoli, in Dorsoduro, dominated by the bell tower of the Church of San Nicolò dei Mendicoli, one of the oldest in Venice.
