Paris-Venice by Emirates?

Did you know that since November 2012 it has been possible to use Emirates miles toward Easy Jet flights? This is indeed a very welcome partnership for Europe-based travelers like us who use Emirates for Africa- and Asia-bound flights and accumulate a considerable amount of miles every year. It is fantastic knowing that we can now use these miles toward a long weekend in old European cities in winter or toward some beach time in the Mediterranean in summer.

Last weekend some of our miles were about to expire and we put this new partnership to the test. As a result, Venice, here we come! There were no hidden costs and indeed even the airport taxes were included in the package. The simplest and quickest purchase ever. Bravo Emirates-Easy Jet partnership!venice canal This photo was taken in Venice where we celebrated our one-year wedding anniversary. I very much look forward to picturesque walks, Venoto wines and sarde in saor (sweet and sour sardines), one of my favorite  Venetian dishes! Moreover, for the first time ever, we have already booked a hotel and will be staying at Palazzo Stern by the gran canal.

Last but not least, I would love to hear about your favorite spots in Venice: galleries, restaurants, wine bars and other places of interest. Be my guide!

    Unfortunately it is impossible to remember the name of one tiny osteria where I was more than ten years ago… But it seems to me that “Al Garanghelo” wouldn’t be very far from what I experienced. Also “La Zucca” seems to have some interesting reviews and “Osteria di Santa Marina” is highly recommended. Try to find some venetian living in Paris (one of my former work colleagues) and ask them!

      Thanks for the tips Annukka! Hopefully by January I will have so many followers in Venice that I know all best-hidden secrets of the city 🙂
