This is it. I am thrilled to share with you a few stories from my Eurotrip! We’ve covered Italy, France, Switzerland, Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic, Spain, Netherlands, and Austria. Okay, that’s quite a number of stories to tackle but I’m finally taking the time to sit down and immortalize those experiences through this platform. Venice holds a special place in my heart because it was my first time to travel alone and it was my first legit “Eurotrip.” My first trip was in Sweden and the next one was in Spain and Paris—this time, we tried to cover more European countries.
DFS hooked me up with the best hotel to stay in, the most amazing restaurants and the most fun and inspiring tours in Venice. Knowing that I was going to be on a solo trip for 5 days, I knew I had to make this an experience of a lifetime. We’re starting it off with my stay at The Westin Regina and Europa. I’m the type of traveler who loves staying in boutique hotels or Airbnbs, but since I partnered with DFS for this trip, they made sure I revel in an unforgettable Venetian experience.
The hotel is centrally located in Corte Barozzi, overlooking the Grand Canal and in the most exclusive shopping district in Venice and just a short walk from the La Fenice Opera House and St. Mark’s Square. This is the area you want to be if you want to go where the “action” is. I personally love staying at places near the squares because this is pretty much where the heart of the city is. In Venice, it was St. Mark’s Square and it was so convenient for me to walk to every morning and late night strolls when all the other tourists are gone. My favorite part of the hotel was the view of Santa Maria della Salute from my balcony. Because it was the first leg of my Eurotrip, jetlag hit me crazy for the first 3-4 days so the view of the basilica and its surrounding canals were so beautiful to look at even during the wee hours in the morning. Let these photos speak for themselves and I’m excited to share more of my Eurotrip experiences with you guys soon!
