We can tell you about activities, museums, palaces and incredible experiences. However, one of the best things you could do here with your soulmate is just wandering through the old city's alleys, called "calli" in Venetian.
Each time of the day (or of the night) you will choose, you will find here different scenarios that will embrace your hearts and emotions.
You will get more deeply into Venetian real daily life but you will also discover many hidden spots that you will not find so easily on travel guides.
