That Moment You First Meet Venice

It's a dull old day in a station, the usual chaos of train noises, station noises and people talking loudly and then, at 1 minute 30 seconds, it all changes.

The scene before you causes you to shake, sometimes, that first time, you will cry. 

Venice is a city of emotions and the most powerful of all emotions is that first moment.  It is a moment that stays with you forever.

Unforgettable.

The sights, sounds of Venice completely overwhelm the senses. 

Whether you then head off to your hotel in Venice,  take a gondola ride or head off shopping.

Whatever things you do in Venice, Venice has left its mark on your soul. Your love affair with Venice has begun.

You realize the main highways are canals and everything travels by water, commuter traffic, public transport, taxis, garbage collection, police... all are a vast array of specially adapted boats.

Watch the video below to see just how incredible the reality is.
