My Venice Itinerary: Feedback please

Jump to last reply

I will be visiting Venice from September 23-26, 2012 and have drawn up an itinerary I would love for some experienced travelers to look at and let me know how it fares.

My wife and I are 35 and 31, will be staying in the Dorsoduro area and like to get up early and walk a lot. We want to find the balance between seeing a lot without having a chaotic visit.

My main question about the itinerary is whether I should begin Day 2 at the Rialto and end in Piazza San Marco or vice-versa. I'm not sure if one area is better than the other in mornings, afternoons, etc. I'd also like to know the best time of day for a gondola ride.

This itinerary includes the sightseeing but not lunch or dinner plans as I can decide a little later on.

This will be a little long but bear with me and any feedback woud be greatly appreciated.

DAY ONE:
Arrive in Venice via Train from Milan at 11:40 am
Take Vaporetto from Ferrovia to Salute
Walk to Hotel (Ca Santo Spirito), Check In

Visit Santa Maria della Salute, La Dogana da Mar, Peggy Guggenheim Collection and Palazzo Cini and Gallerie dell'Accademia - all in Dursodoro area.

After dinner, end day with a stroll on the Zattere

DAY TWO:
Breakfast at Ca Santo Spirito Hotel

Cross the Rialto to the Market

Make way back to hotel on west side of the Grand Canal and visit: Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari (church), Scuola Grande di San Rocco (16th century school), Scuola Grande dei Carmini (17th century school), Campo San Barnaba (square)
