you should spend a time visiting MURANO. it's a really beautiful place. the glass art is incredible and you can visit factories to see people producing the objects. it's easy to get there, you can spend the morning there, have a lunch and came back to venice.
Not to be missed:
Murano

There's lots of traditional food, even though the prices are a little high, and it's very ... romantic! We came home to our appartment via a different route every night, through all those lanes, and those canals! Bring your trainers because you can only get around on foot!

THE DIFFICULTIES ARE NOTED. THERE ARE A LOT OF BRIDGES AND STEPS TO OVERCOME, YOU NEED TO BE PATIENT AND REMEMBER THAT YOU CAN'T EAT IN OR AROUND THE SQUARES. THERE ARE TOO MANY THINGS TO SEE AND EVEN THE GONDOLA IS TRICKY BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY AROUND. BRING A VERY DETAILED MAP.

GORGEOUS. A CITY ON WATER. YOU CAN GET AROUND WITHOUT THE FAMOUS GONDOLA (WHICH COSTS 70.00 EURO). THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT YOU CAN'T EAT IN THE SQUARES OF THE CITY (EVEN IN SAN MARCO). THERE IS AN INFINITE NUMBER OF SHOPS AND STALLS. THE RIALTO BRIDGE AND THE BRIDGE OF SIGHS ARE THE BEST.

IT'S A CITY FULL OF CHARM, UNIQUE, COMFORTABLE FOR TOURISTS, GO ROUND ON FOOT TO APPRECIATE THE MOST INSPIRING CORNERS. THE GHETTO AND THE SYNAGOGUES ARE INTERESTING. ST MARK'S SQUARE IS ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SQUARES OF ITALY. THE FOOD IS GREAT AND THE CITY IS VERY WELCOMING.

The food and drink is divine, there are lots of nice restaurants, and although some are a little expensive it's really worth it, even for the view. I recommend going there in the spring because of the pleasant temperatures, and don't forget a romantic gondola ride!

Venice is beautiful to visit and walk around. From the Rialto Bridge to the characteristic 'calle' (streets). You walk a lot but it's worth it. A gondola is unmissable, tourists enjoy it so much. Also visit Murano, Burano and Torcello by boat.

The food is good in all Venetian restaurants. I recommend the Remer restaurant for the location and its breathtaking view of the Grand Canal and the Rialto Bridge and the availability of aperitif, which allows you to eat for only 10 Euros, it's the only Venetian place that offers "aperitivo".

Take comfortable walking shoes and no wheeled suitcases, backpacks turned out to be an excellent solution, especially for going up and down the stairs of bidges and of our hotel, which was at the top of a never-ending staircase! The weather was good but a light jacket is always handy.

For me, the best time is around the end of October, tourism drops and you can enjoy the best climate, it's misty, the bars and restaurants are not completely overtaken by people and you can sit in a square without Japanese people taking pictures of you as though you were a piece of the city.

In February it's quite cold. The Carnival is magical, the whole city is masked, attractive, engaging. I stayed in a hostel just outside Venice, I also visited the island of Murano, I ate in restaurants and at night there's live music in several bars.

It's not a bad city, it's unique, romantic but chaotic at the same time and very expensive ..... especially the accommodation. I stayed in a 3 star hotel that had a bathroom without a toilet. But Venice is like that, if you love it you accept these things. I've been going for 25 years now and I overlook these things.

I walked a lot and I took the ferry: both were fun and I spent unforgettable days, Venice is a city that allows you to relax without worrying about traffic while you stroll through the alleys, streets, and bridges ... discovering the hidden corners and fascinating places.

Venice is beautiful all year round, but of course the best time is during the carnival! It's wonderful to get lost in the "calli" (the famous streets) and then re-emerge in a small unknown square, or to look for a place to take a picture of a hidden corner which manages to capture an element of city life.

April is less busy with nice cool weather. Accommodation is also less expensive off season and it is much easier to get accommodation booked. When it is cool it is easier to walk vast distances and see more. I have been in mid winter but that is a little to misty and cold

Venice is most charming in spring and autumn, even at the turn of November you may be dressed light and sun is shining. And yes, prices are definitely lower. You'll be almost alone in those churches-museums that will introduce you to the best of art in this city. This ticket used to allow visiting almost a dozen structures for 10EUR whuke a single entry to each was 3EUR.

The picturesque city of Venice, Italy is full of romance and whimsy in every season, so it’s always a great time to plan your getaway! Looking for romantic trip ideas? Carnet suggests hiring a Water Taxi to take you to the Giudecca Canal just before sunset so you can enjoy the colors and reflection of the waters. Watch the rays of the sunset play on the gold of the domes of San Marco from the Bell Tower of San Giorgio Maggiore, far from the maddening crowd. Whether you’re traveling to Venice, Italy looking for romance or are a seasoned traveler, the Carnet travel guide to Venice has insider ... More travel reviews for culture rich entertainment, art museums, galleries, fine dining, luxury hotels and fashion designer shopping addresses. A stroll through the neighborhoods of Venice is a lovely and charming experience. In the summer months, visitors and locals alike enjoy long evening walks along the Giudecca. In autumn, you can walk across piazza San Marco, but don’t forget to bring your rubber boots because of the high tide! In winter, ten centuries of history are covered by a silent blanket of snow. In the spring, make sure to experience the flowers and scents of the secret gardens in the city of the Doge. While in Venice, Carnet suggests taking a motorboat across the Venetian lagoon to the island of Torcello. Visit the ruins of the old Byzantine Cathedral and have a late lunch under the shady pergolas of the gardens of Locanda Cipriani. You might be seated at the table where Ernest Hemingway wrote “Across the River and into the Trees.”

Many don't know that Venice also has a Hard Rock Cafe! It's a bit small but for lovers of the chain but it's still nice to visit! It's behind Piazza San Marco. You get to it through several arches in front of the famous Florien bar. It might be tricky to find it then you get there, ask :)
