Venice, Italy is one of those places you have to go to before you die. 

From the moment you step foot off the boat and start walking to your hotel, your eyes will be overwhelmed with amazing imagery making you realize you are very far away from your ordinary life.

Step foot onto St. Mark’s Square and you will feel like you have stepped into another world full of history.  You’ll have to do a double take because you can’t beleive this place has existed for as long as it has.

If you are thinking about proposing to your girlfriend, do it here.  If you want to impress the crap out of that uber hot supermodel you are dating, take her here.  If you want to have one of the most insane dates that you will remember for the rest of your life, yeah – do it here.

The only bad thing I could probably say about Venice is that you will get sick of the Italian food.  We actually ended up eating dinner at one of the two Chinese restaurants there during our last night because we just needed to change it up a bit.

The surprising thing – the shopping.  For whatever reason, they had the coolest shops with the coolest gear.  The added bonus is you get your tax back when you leave Europe.  You will save about 20% on your shopping versus shopping in the U.S. 

Hey, at least you get some form of reconciliation after spending a boatload of money on your trip.
