Italy is practically my first love (sorry Paris). If you have ever see a full moon shimmering on the Grand Canal while standing on the Bridge of Sighs you will understand why.
Arrival by boat in the City is magical - spying the Lion of St. Mark and the Doge's Palace is such a privilege.
I like to wander the City without a strict schedule - have espresso in St. Mark's Square, explore back alleys and shops, visit Murano Glass factory (ship a chandelier or some glasses home).
Go to Teatro La Fenice - a jewel box of an opera house - and see a production of Madame Butterfly or La Traviata.
Go for a gondola ride and get swept back in time....
