Itinerary for Venice

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a 2+ month long trip to Europe. Plan is to arrive from the east coast US to London, then time in southeastern UK, Paris, and our next stop is Venice for 1 week. Dates not firm as waiting to hear about Paris apt. but hoping to be in Venice from Sept. 13-20, 2015. We are 2 retired seniors and this will be our first time to Venice. I have knee problems and walking down stairs is a slow go but manageable.

This is the itinerary I've planned. Would appreciate any advice, suggestions, criticisms as I have never been to Venice before. Will only be having breakfasts in the apt. as well as keeping snacks and drinks on hand. Will not be cooking dinners. Included in my days will be time to just sit and people watch or wander and get "lost."

day 1-Arrive by flight from Paris, take alilaguna boat to city center, arrive to booked apt. (still looking), settle in and then venture out for supplies. Wander over to St. Mark's Square in the evening.

day 2- St. Mark's Square, Basilica (be there when the interior is lit), Clock Tower, Grand Canal cruise on vaporetto.

day 3- Correr Museum, Secret Itineraries tour Doge's Palace-Bridge of Sighs and prisons, Campanile, La Fenice Opera House.

day 4- markets, Rialto Bridge, Frari Church, Scuola San Rocco. If time-San Giacomo dell'Orio Church.

day 5- Lagoon islands-Murano, Burano and if time Torcello.

day 6- San Giorgio Maggiore, La Salute Church, Peggy Guggenheim Collection.

day 7- Accademia, Ca'Rezzonico, Arsenale.

There is so much more I would have liked to see but so little time! Others would be San Zaccaria Church, SS Giovanni e Paolo Church, Ca d' Oro, old Jewish Ghetto. I'm sure I've missed some amazing gem. If I have please let me know! Thanks.
