Traveling to Venice can be overwhelming and not worth the time, money and effort during the high season. For those that cannot live without experiencing the romance of Venice, there is hope. During the winter “off season,” the crowds are smaller and easier to avoid. It is also during this time a year that Venice is at its most romantic. Quite winding streets cover in a foggy mist adding to the magic of Venice. In this fog, there is a cafe waiting for you to experience a slower local way of life. Where people have known each other for years and are willing to hang out killing time until it is time for dinner. With a willingness to get lost comes the reward of winding decaying marble mansion from the Venice’s heyday and picturesque views of the canals. The mist of winter provides the perfect drop to a romantic trip to Venice without the hassle of claustrophobic crowds of the high season.
