Trip Report Things I learned about Venice

Jump to last reply

Venice was our last stop of our three weeks in Italy and the one I had least-well researched. I thought it would be enough just to BE in Venice, and while that is basically true, my visit would have been enriched by better planning.

I knew nothing about acqua alta, which we encountered (we were there mid-October) and I've written about here (as well as photos of our lovely hotel room and great meals we had in Venice): https://polloplayer.wordpress.com/2016/02/20/depth-in-venice/

We made an amateur's mistake right off the bat upon our arrival at the train station. We weren't traveling as light as some people and our suitcases were heavy. We should have taken a water taxi but in the flurry of arrival we boarded a vaporetto instead and, the wrong vaporetto line at that. We ended up with a very inconvenient and l-o-n-g walk to our hotel. Water taxis are expensive but would have definitely been the way to go.

People seem to either love or hate Venice. I wanted to love it but felt like I didn't make the best use of my time there, partly due to the acqua alta. Definitely want to return and give it another try!

I also wish I had hired a guide for visiting St. Marks and especially the Doge's Palace.

Oh, and as everyone already knows, prepare to be lost most of the time. GPS just bounces off all those narrow little walled streets - it's quite a challenge to get around!
