Things to do in Venice

Visit Venice at least once in your life. This city is, without any overstatement, stunningly beautiful. It's justifiably legendary for its architecture and canals. On your first day don’t rush off to all the sights. Get a map and just wander down the narrow streets and across the canals. You’re sure to get a bit lost, but just enjoy it. Remember to also get a map of the Aqua Alta, or High Water. It will show you which areas flood and how to get round them. Don’t wear your best shoes when it’s high water!

Take a trip on the Grand Canal, either on a gondola or more economically a vaporetto (waterbus). Alternatively, sign up for a walking or boat tour. Visit the big three of the Palazzo Ducale, Saint Mark’s Basilica and Saint Mark’s Square early in the morning. That's not just because they get very crowded later on - the morning light in the square will enhance the experience.

Don’t forget the lovely Teatro La Fenice for an opera to round off your Venetian experience. And after all that there are lots of restaurants and shops to try out too.
