Location | Venice, Italy

Our guide for Venice… look at the map, remember where your accommodation is and then leave the map behind. You can pretty much almost guarantee that if your lost in some back alleyway you can follow the crowd and find your way back to the main centres aka Piazza San Marco. And make sure you go to Piazza San Marco both during the day to chase pigeons and at night to soak up that Italian orchestral music bellowing through the entire piazza.

The dreamy gonadal ride is about 80-100€ per half hour, which turns out is for the hire of the gondola not per person (this could have just been our dumb assumption). We never actually got around to doing one, although you can take a ‘ferry’ (we use this term loosely because it’s more the size of a water taxi) for about 8€ all the way down the grand canal. It’s a much cheaper way of seeing the city from the water which is a must do in Venezia.

Another spot we loved was the markets around the Rialto bridge and the bridge itself. You can get some great leather goods in the markets which turned out to be cheaper in Venezia than in Florence (wishing we knew this in hindsight). We ended our two days in Venezia with dinner and a bottle of vino rosso by the Grand Canal. The city really has such a romantic allure about it. You could walk around for days just getting lost. But if your on a tighter schedule like us, we personally recommend that two nights is more than enough.
