Three and half days in Venice

Jump to last reply

I would like some help in planning our 3.5 days in Venice in June. We will be arriving on a Friday at 4 pm and leaving Tuesday at 9 Am. We ere traveling with our 2 daughters (18 &22). We are staying in an apartment in Dorsoduro. We are the type of people that love to walk around and really get the feel of the place. I need help planning our itinerary.
Friday afternoon by the time we get to our place I though just go out and walk around Dorsoduro and find a place to eat. Any restaurant recommendations ( $60-70 euros max for 4) or a good pizza place will be great.
Is Saturday a good day to to to St. Marks Basilica or shall we wait for Monday? If that is the case I would love to go to Burano (do we spend one day there or do we hop to the other islands like Murano & Torcello?
Sunday walk around the neighborhoods like Cannaregio, Castello and just stop wherever we feel like it. Restaurant recommendations??
Monday: St Mark's and surrounding areas if we did not go on Saturday.
I have seen that there are some tours for St. Mark's Basilica. Are they worth it, or its better to do it on our own.

Another question is regarding the Vaporetto tickets. Is there like a 3 day pass or do we need to get a ticket as needed?

Any input you can give me will be appreciated.

Thanks a lot
