14 Feb 20 PHOTOS TO INSPIRE YOU TO VISIT VENICE
Oh Venice, it’s true what they said. No matter how often you’ve seen Venice through films and photos, the real thing is more surreal than you could ever imagine.
– Walk, walk, walk. I always say that this is the best form to connect with a city, nothing changes with Venice. Go everywhere walking, cause everything is close and you don’t want to pay 8€ for a 30-minutes jam-packed Vaporetto ride through the Grand Canale or a 3-day-pass for 40€. Better go walking and save your euros for some unique experiences!
– Visit the Basilica di San Marco, located in St Mark’s Square, obviously. It’s free and it’s unbelievable! So beautiful. Put it on your list. Now.
– For something quick, grab a takeaway pizza from Antico Forno.
– You can’t properly say you’ve been to Venice before going on a Gondola Ride. They charge per gondola (up to 6 people) so grab some friends or ask around to make the price worth it.
– But yes, if you still can’t afford the Gondola ride but you’re so keen to experience it, you may know that there are some gondolas for 2€ that bring you from one side to the other side of the Grand Canale. They are called Traghetto.
– If you are an obsessed like me and can’t leave Italy without eating gelato. Your place is Gelatoteca Suso. Gelatos here are to-die-for! 😋
– Head to the terrace of T Fondaco dei Tedeschi shopping mall next to Rialto Bride for amazing views over Venice. And save the 8€ that cost climb the Campanile Tower.
– Catch the Vaporetto and go ahead Murano and Burano islands. Both worth a visit. If you catch it in San Zaccaria stop you’ll spend 40 minutes on the boat before arriving at Murano, but if you catch it in Fondamente Nove stop, then you’ll only spend 10 minutes on the boat!
– See the sunrise/sunset from Ponte dell’Accademia.
– Discover Venice through the eyes of a local. Do the touristy things, but also get to know the floating city as a local, eat, drink, and do everything as a local do!
