After spending the day exploring Venice (read about that here!), we headed out for an apéritif and dinner.

This was my favourite time to see the city. Not only was it cooler and less crowded, the evening sunlight made it even prettier and more romantic.

We loved having an Aperol Spritz or two in this little square, which was really popular with the locals. People watching and admiring chic passers-by is my type of sightseeing!

Outfit details: as above, with addition of Ray-Ban Folding Wayfarers and Chanel 2.55 handbag (vintage).

Afterwards, we headed for dinner at Birraria La Corte – a lovely pizzeria and restaurant that was recommended on the Italy Heaven website. We sat outside in a bustling square and enjoyed a feast of melon and parma ham, bruschetta and pizza.

In a city full of tourists, it’s not surprising that there’s a lot of bad, overpriced restaurants. We did well to avoid them by doing lots of research ahead of our trip, but I wouldn’t say Venice is the best place for foodies.

Yum!

Places close surprisingly early in Venice, so after dinner we grabbed some gelato and watched the boats go by from our apartment’s pontoon. Perfetto!
