This weeks unofficial photos come from Venice Italy. I was luck enough to spend a few days there during the end of June with my girlfriend and we saw some amazing things. Checking out Venice is something I have wanted to do since I was a little kid and walking around in the narrow corridors in the less crowded parts of the city made me feel just like a kid again.

There were certainly plenty of parts of the city that were more crowded with tourists and shoppers, but if you tried hard enough to get lost you could find yourself alone and in awe. The city of Venice has a long and glorious past. Check it out: Venice history. There are four ways to get around in this city of canals. First is to walk through the streets and over the hundreds of bridges that connect all the mini islands. Your second option is to take a water taxi. The taxis pick up a piers that are located all over the city and will drop you off where ever you like.

The third option is to buy a water bus pass. These passes let you get on and off any of the water buses that connect the city. There is a very easy to use map of their routes. It looks kind of like any other public transit map except all the lines are in the water. We used the water bus extensively and it was awesome! Your final option for transport is the romantic gondola ride. We really wanted to do one of these rides, but the cost was so high that we opted out. The word on the street was that they are 85 Euro ($150) for a half hour ride.

Between the history and the beautiful architecture you can keep yourself very busy in Venice for a few days. If you need to get you blood pumping a bit on vacation you can rent bikes on the island of Lido and go for a cruise. I would recommend checking it out before you die, it was way worth it!
