Going to Venice, have questions :-p

Jump to last reply

1) We have some liras at home, will a decimille (10,000) be enough for a taxi from the airport, and I will use ATM later.

2) Are there safety vests on the waterbuses, or there are only enough for the bus drivers? I worry, as I can’t swim.

3) Are the gladiators still dangerous? Maybe if we avoid Rome we shouldn’t worry? I see gladiator sandals sold in shoe stores in San Francisco, is it because the market for them is dwindling in Italy?

4) Should we, just in case, bring swards and shields to fight off the occasional gladiators?

5) Is it true, boats to Murano are made of glass? As I wear skirts, modesty is a concern.

6) Still confused about the languages, Italian or Roman or Latin? How to determine which one to use?

7) What should we wear to blend in with the locals? We still have time to learn arias if needed. Should my husband tie a bandanna on his neck or…?
