Venice 2.25 day Itinerary

Jump to last reply

I'll be with a group of six who have two full days in Venice this September. (I actually have a week, but the rest are arriving later). I'm trying to develop an itinerary that 1) has a local flavor, & avoids the madding crowds as much as possible, 2) manages to capture a good variety of major sights, and 3) is relaxed and leaves time for long lunches and exploring and lingering over glasses of wine.

Two of us are major planners; the other four will smile and follow our lead. I'm hoping for insight on whether this plan meet our goals:

Evening One:
- Check into apartment in the East Castello / West Canneregio area
- Cicchetti crawl along the Fondamenta della Misericordia.


Day One: Wherein I take the lead and they follow.

- Vaporetto down Grand Canal to San Giorgio Maggiore. The church looks nice, but one of our group is a mad fan for bell towers, and the one on San Giorgio looks fabulous.
- Vaporetto to Giudecca. Explore. Chiesa del Redentore. Grab lunch.
- Vaporetto to Dorsoduro. We'll probably only have the time or energy for one museum, Accademia or Guggenheim.
- (if time: Scuola Grande di San Rocco)
- siesta
- 7 pm: We have tickets for Tosca at La Fenice.

Day Two: We brave the tourist crowds

- 10:45: Secret Passages tour, Palazzo Ducale (already reserved; this was the earliest time I could get)
- lunch. Not in San Marco area! Maybe Dorsoduro or San Polo.
- 3 pm: Clock tower tour (reserved)
- More cicchetti
- 8 pm: Rowing lessons with Row Venice, Cannaregio (reserved)

Day Three: 1 pm train to Verona.

For myself, I'll be spending another half day wandering, a day exploring the Bienalle exhibits, and a day exploring Torcello.
