Venice for 6 nights, itinerary advice

Jump to last reply

Hi, I will be staying in Venice for 6 nights at the end of March, with my husband and daughter, 16.

We have mapped out an itinerary and would like to know what others think, is it too ambitious are we packing too much in?

We intend getting a 3 day vaporetto pass for visiting the islands and doing the Grand Canal trip.

We have only booked flights, apartments and train to Florence, will also be booking the secret itineraries tour of the Doges palace before we go.

That way we are not fixed to having to do things at a set time and can go at a slower pace if we need to
Day 1 fly into Venice, arrive at 10.50 am, our flight time is 2 hours and 5 mins.

Find apartment, check in, unpack, find somewhere for lunch, get lost, fit in a gondola ride .

Day 2 Day trip to Verona by train.

Day 3 Day trip to Dolomites or Veneto hill trip, haven't decided yet- this is a guided tour and lasts all day and has been recommended as we won't have a car.

Day 4 Rialto Market, St.Marks sq basilica and campanile, Doges Palace and secret itineraries.

Day 5 Murano, Burano and Torcello.

Day 6 Academia, Tour of Grand Canal and Ghost walk

Day 7 Pack, leave luggage at apartment and spend the day wandering around Venice, taking in anything we may have missed before catching a train at 4.30pm to Florence.
