I have a hard time deciding whether Paris or Venice is my favorite place in the world. I think Venice is winning right now. I’m hoping to tag on four days in Venice with my trip this summer so I can research for my book: Venice by Vaporetto. I will be posting just as I did with Paris by Métro, but I will be focusing on the best sights and stops in Venice instead. I can’t wait to start it! I’d love to see your experiences with Venice. Here is how you can contribute:
1. Each Sunday, a place will be set as the theme (it could be a city, landmark, national park, etc.)
2. If you are familiar with the place and would like to contribute, you will write a post and title it Travel Journey of the Week: Venice.
3. Your post can be any medium that works for you; videos, photos, descriptions, itineraries, personal memories, poems, ticket stubs, etc.
4. Finally, be sure to provide a link back here so everyone can connect and share their own take on the place: http://liberatedtraveler.com/2013/09/29/travel-journey-of-the-week-venice/
Travel Journey of the Week: Venice
This week I’ll share some of my artifacts from Venice trips since I’ve already shared my photos. What do you do with your ticket stubs?
Here is a video for fun. A free postcard will be sent to anyone who can tell me the name of the song playing in the background in the first scene. I’ve always wanted to know what it is.

I think you should visit Paris and Venice many more times in order to decide which is your favorite.
I have only visited Venice briefly and not sure if I’ll ever get back there though you never know. I keep things like tickets and business cards and even in this digital age, I print trip photos and put them in albums with the tickets and receipts and things. http://tvortravels.wordpress.com/2013/10/06/travel-journey-of-the-week-venice/
Many years since I was in Venice but the memories are still vivid. Where else are you going in the Summer? 🙂
I am in Venice right now! La Serenissima … It is a jewel, but because it is small, it cannot accommodate all the tourists, even now in the more off season. So, my vote would go to Paris still.
It is impossible to choose. I love them both. (Although, I am not fond of the Aqua Alta).
I have already posted most of my Venice photos too, so I’ve gone for Burano instead. http://travelwithintent.com/2013/10/11/watery-beauty-in-burano/
Nice snippet. We stayed in an apartment near San Basilio in the Dorsoduro (about 15mins walk to San Marco). A much quieter part of Venice. Enjoyed the touristy stuff but then found much peace and beauty away from the walking masses. Venice is a life-size, crumbling photogenic museum. Never be over-whelmed by the tourists- turn left or right and you’ll find personal space and some real Venetian life, you will also be lost. regards Peet
Here are some of my Venice posts if interested.
