Help with Venice Itinerary

Jump to last reply

So, I will be going in Venice in February (19-24/2/14) and I want to know if my Itinerary is feasible, and some recommendations if you have any. I need to tell you that the Venice Carnival dates are 15th February to 4th March so I will be there during the Carnival, and that means there will be a lot of tourists, hordes. And I also have to say I am a really into food, photography, and culture, but don't like tours. So here is my Itinerary:

~Day 1
I enter Venice at 7:00pm, go to my hotel leave my luggage and head to Cannaregio, strolling and then eat at "La Bottega ai Promessi ai Sposi" then return to the hotel.

~Day 2
In this day, I'm planning to explore the Dorsoduro area. Firstly I head to Ca' Rezzonico, then Galleria dell' Accademia then some cicchetti (tapas/meze) at "Cantinone Gia' Schiavi" then Peggy Guggenheim and then Santa Maria della Salute. Lunch at "Antica Locanda Montin".

~Day 3
In this day, I'm planning to explore the San Polo area. Firstly I head to Scuola Grande di San Rocco, then Frari Basilica which is next to the Scuola, then I head to the Rialto area and do some giro d'ombra (food walk) by eating some cicchetti in "All'Arco" then in "Do Mori" and then go to the Rialto Market. I cross the Rialto Bridge and eat some cicchetti in "La Vedova".

~Day 4
In this day, I'm planning to explore the Piazza San Marco and Western Castello. Firstly I head to Campanile di San Marco, then Basilica di San Marco, then Palazzo Ducale and then go to take a Gondola ride from Bacino Orseolo (Gondola Parking just behind Piazza San Marco) and tell the Gondolier to take me to San Giorgio dei Greci. See the Church and the Byzantine Greek Museum and then lunch at Corte Sconta. Finally I get to the Arsenale and then Museo Storico Navale.

~Day 5
This is the free day, for shopping etc. Leaving Venice in midday, and then back home to Athens.

Is this a feasible Itinerary, any recommendations?
