Updated Venice hints please

Postby Polishgirl » 20 Aug 2017, 06:50

I'm off to Venice next month- annual city break with my trusty gal pal. It was her choice. We went to Vienna last year and I absolutely, desperately fell in love with it, so it's a hard act to follow for me.

I've booked an Air Bnb in Cannaregio. We're also planning a day to either Verona or Padua.

I'd really appreciate hints/ tips - especially for things off the beaten track; an update on the older Venice thread.

Just wander about at night. I will see if I can find the restaurants we ate at - they were decent - my wife checked reviews on trip advisor.

Try to learn and speak just a little Veneto - it goes a LONG way.

Don't eat in any restaurants that have a tourist menu.
