Grand Canal cruise
The first in the morning – take cruise of the Grand Canal between Piazza San Marco and the Ferrovia (train station) or Piazzale Roma (car park). Look for them at 1 or 2 vaporetto line and enjoy the experience.
Campanile di San Marco
This bell tower is good to visit first as in this way you will avoid long lines as well as will see all the panorama of the city you a going to walk through.
St. Mark’s Basilica
Here you should come also early in the morning as queues to see its treasures would make you a little bit desperate. Believe me, you won’t regret this, as this basilica contains the thousands of square feet of glittering mosaics swathing its interior.
The good place for a lunch gathers between Piazza San Marco and The Accademia. If to suggest something authentic, there is a hidden place Osteria La Campana. And if you want just quick bite, you could opt for one of two excellent tavola calda joints selling hot, prepared foods near the Rialto Bridge.
Here you can see the old masters paintings such as the works of Titian, Tintoretto, Giovanni Bellini, Paolo Veneziano and many others.
Rialto Bridge & market
Cross over the Grand Canal on the Rialto Bridge and here you can wander for a bit to the stalls of the Rialto Market.
Overpriced touristy, hackneyed and so on, but still so romantic and spectacular. And it’s pretty cool way to relax after day full of adventures.
Venice is not like all the other Italy, the dinner here is not so late, so keep this into account and choose a place until 9pm as many kitchens closing at this time. And what to eat for dinner? There shouldn’t be event a question – seafood, because Venice is all about that!
Piazza San Marco
End your day at Piazza San Marco with piano players playing for the tables in front of competing cafes and wonder aimlessly around Venice’s labyrinth of alleyways.
