I was in March, and everything was ok, but I believe that in summer becomes unbearable cool.gif


Precisely wink.gif it depends on the period, but as Sinisa said, the summer in Venice equals nose killer biggrin.gif

In september I'll go and see:
Venice (Italy) Ancona (Italy) Korfu (Greece) Santorini (Greece) Athens (Greece) Argostoli (Greece) Kotor (Montenegro)


I went to Venice with my parents around 20 years ago, so I can manage to see it again I guess.

Bruges looks beautiful too. People say there's nothing like Venice but there's probably nothing like Bruges too... all medieval smile.gif

I haven't been there though.

I was watching a film called The Tourist, which is set in Venice. I've never been there but it seems an amazingly beautiful place - one of a kind. Anybody ever been there ? smile.gif

Man I want to go there so bad! Tourist is a very good movie I liked it a lot! smile.gif

Bruges is amazing even if i say so myself. I live in Ghent ..a bit further east..actually they are called twin city's
because they have the same medieval character.Waterways,canals,ancient historical buildings..
In Ghent there also lots of huge cathedrals and even large ancient castle's in the city centre...
I'll post some pics..next to my house there are two big chestnutt trees about 550 years old..impressive.

Normal scene's for europeans but for americans or let say japanese people it's pretty stunning to watch ...

Where I live in America there really isn't much culture or history. There's just strip malls with fat people walking in and out of them dry.gif
