Venice in October... by myself! (Please advise.)

Jump to last reply

I'm going to be in Venice for 6 days in mid October, and during 4 of those days, I will be my own mistress, wandering around solo for the first time ever in a foreign city. I'm pretty excited!

This post is sort of a general request for information and advice about:

1. visiting Venice in October
2. visiting Venice alone

Basically, if you have experience with either or both of these, please tell me about it.

Please note that I've been to Venice twice before and have done the tourist thing. I'm 33, fit, and prepared to walk forever and get lost. With that in mind, here are some guiding questions:

What should I wear? Should I bring boots?
Suggestions for vegetarian food/restaurants?
I want to wander around at night/after dark; I'll be fine, right?
Any special museums I should visit?
Best place to sit and stare?
What did you do?
Is there anything I haven't thought of?

Thanks in advance for your time and thoughts!

- Sabrina
