2-day Venice itinerary - can we do it all? Also, Vaporetto question

Jump to last reply

We are from the UK, a married couple in our 50s, and this is our first trip to Italy. After Venice, we will be in Rome for 8 days.

After a lot of research, reading and most of all helpful advice from this forum, and based on our interests, here is what I've come up with for our Venice itinerary:

***Wed 24 Apr***
6.30pm Arrive Santa Lucia station from Rome
Vaporetto Line 2 to hotel
Check-in Hotel Galleria
Supper - somewhere?
Piazza San Marco
Café Florian


***Thu 25 Apr***
Breakfast at hotel
San Zaccaria
9.55am Doges Palace (Secret Itineraries tour booked)
1.25pm Basilica di San Marco (Entry booked)
Foundazione Querini Stampalia
Santa Maria dei Miracoli
Scuola de San Giorgio degli Schiavoni
9.00pm Four Seasons Concert @San Vidal (Tickets booked)



***Fri 26 Apr***
Breakfast at hotel
Check-out hotel (they will hold our luggage)
Rialto Market (early morning)
Scuola Grande dei San Rocco
Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari
Scuola Grand dei Carmine
Santa Maria della Salute
Collect luggage from hotel
Vaporetto Line 2 to Santa Lucia station (Pick up food to eat on the train for supper)
4.25 pm Depart Santa Lucia station for Rome


Q. Location-wise, I think I've placed everything in logical order. For those of you familiar with Venice, are there any adjustments I should make?

Q. Other than the vaporetto from/to the train station, will we need it for anything else on this itinerary or can we reach everything on foot? (Trying to determine whether or not we should buy a pass.)

Q. After reading Rick Steves' ITALY, I'm a bit concerned about the eating situation. It seems like so much to have to remember ... extra charges for eating whilst seated; this menu and that menu. eek! Is ordering something to eat in Venice simpler than it sounds?

Thanks!!
