Venice Italy


Venice is one of the most famous tourist attractions in the whole world. The historic buildings, the amazing canals, the small islands and the bridges make it one of the loveliest places on Earth. If you are planning to spend some time there, we will help you with these tips in order to make your trip easier. 

1. The Ferries:
The price of the ferries is good. The trip takes about an hour including the switches time and you can either have a ticket for the ticket machines or from the ferry itself when you are onboard. If you didn’t buy a ticket, once you get onboard try to get one to avoid being charged.

When you buy a ticket from the machine, you will need to validate it at the water taxi stop by running it via the machine there.
If you really love the ferries and enjoy them, buy Venice’s all-inclusive transport pass.

2. The Hotel:

It is better if you booked a hotel near a water taxi stop. It is also better if you stayed more than one day there to be able to enjoy the whole city.
Even if you will spend a day there, it is better to book a room. It is so tiring to walk around with your luggage in Venice.
The prices of the hotels are fair but they increase during summer so take care of this point.

3. The Outer Islands:
If you want to take some of the most amazing pictures you will ever take, just go on the outer islands. Burano and Murano are among the islands that must be visited during your trip. Have an unforgettable lunch there. One of the most amazing meals is the Italian fish Gatto Nero on Burano Island.
If you want to enjoy the beach, go to Lido Island.

4. Restaurants of the Locals:
Before going there, research for the best restaurants in Venice especially the ones that are popular among the Italians; these should be on your top list. There are some apps and websites that can help you like Yelp. You also should ask the native Italians for their favorite restaurants and they will tell you where you should have your meals to enjoy the Italian cuisine.

5. Even Maps May Get You Lost:
Venice is the kind of cities that you will definitely get lost there; it is inevitable. You should be prepared to get lost there by knowing some information about the city, the hotels, the restaurants and the transportation. Always ask Italians about the directions and try to mark the road all the time.
