    Take a tour with Doges Palace and the Basilica di San Marco. We used Viator the the tour was great. Worth seeing both of these!

    Nice place with lots of shopping and a good meeting place. We wanted to sit on the steps and wait for our tour out of the sun but were told you cant sit on the steps

    Going to the opera, wow, this was special. Verdi’s “I Lombardi alla prima crocera”. Never heard of it so did some prep prior to coming to Venice and the music sounded glorious, and indeed it was simply splendid when heard in the most beautiful opera house. The interior was decoratively outstandingly beautiful.
    The only hiccough was the interval. We missed a glass of Prosecco because we did not understand the local system to obtain your drink. First you needed to find the till which was not by the bar. You pay at the till, keep your receipt and then queue up at the bar and show your receipt to a barman who then prepares your drink. We of course queued for a while and when we tried to order at the bar we’re told to go to the till, get a receipt and return. Irritating but in the scheme of things only mildly so.
    Yes, it’s expensive and it’s a treat but it’s a one-off and so worthwhile. So glad we took a risk, the memory will be for life.

    What a fabulous museum filled with the works of many of my favorite modern artists--Klee, Kadinsky, Picasso, Calder, Ernst, Dali, and many more. You can get right up to the art--no roped off areas. This was my favorite stop in my two days in Venice.

    Canareggio is an oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of tourists. Although there are fewer tourists. A very friendly neighborhood, still inhabited by true Venetians. Beautiful and quiet squares, streets and canals. Don't miss a walk along the Fondamentas with several options for eat or simply drink a coffee or an aperitif. Inside, don't miss the Jewish Ghetto. Very interesting

    Stunning 360 degree views around Venice from the bell tower. Well worth 8 euro and so peaceful - no queue at all at 11am. Beautiful church and island too. So pleased we followed the advice of others on trip advisor and did this bell tower instead of St Marks Square. Just a short trip across on the vaporetto. One of the best things we did.

    Lovely old part of town. More for the locals than tourists. More Campo's to see as in all other the areas. Buildings are amazing. We wandered through San Polo into Dosoduro acoss the bridge to the Basillica at the end of the Grand Canal

    We visited this church when wandering the streets of Venice. It is so lovely, with Titian paintings. A very good guide in English to wander around and take in the art. Best church we visited.

    This is the most famous bridge in Venice and as such it’s very busy! Not matter what day or time of day you go there will always be lots of people.

    I recommend getting the public water bus and then you can go underneath it and see it from a different perspective.

    Just magnificent. The Tintoretto’s are spectacular, and well looked after. The Treasure Room was excellent, although we almost missed it due to poor signage

    We went for the roof deck experience but also enjoyed walking through some of the departments to browse. 15 minutes is plenty of time to enjoy the views. Check the website about a week in advance to ensure you can reserve the time you want.
