Advice Needed: travelling alone and on tour to Murano Glass Factory-Venice

Jump to last reply

Hello,

I'm going on my first trip to Italy and I am staying in Venice for 5 days. I was looking for advice on two things:
1. Tips on traveling alone in Venice. I've traveled alone in South America, but never in Europe and any advice about Venice, would be greatly appreciated..
2. Taking a tour of the Murano Glass Factory. Should I try to schedule a tour before I get to Venice or wait until I arrive in Venice? My concern is cost and availability.

Some people have told me that tours can book up and it might be more expensive to do it when I get there..

Thanks!
kiki
