My first proper summer in Europe and the heat is already taking its toll - I spent most of the day laying by the pool, scoffing gelato! By the time I actually explored the city it was late afternoon, but I still had to fight every urge to jump into the canal to cool off! Serves me right for wearing jeans... genius idea, I know. Now we’re off to Bologna, but I’ll definitely be back to the wonderful Venice. Please leave any tips for what to see in Bologna or Rome below, I’d love to know the local secrets! Ciao x
