Venice sightseeing

Jump to last reply

In early October of this year we will be in Venice for three days. We are staying in Dorsoduro at Ca Maria Adele. We have an early arrival (9:30a.m.), but I'm thinking by the time we buy our vaporetto pass, sort out transport to hotel and get settled in, we may just want to explore Dorsoduro and then later head out to St. Marks to see the square in the evening.
Day 2 - we will visit inside the Basilica and take the Secret Itineraries tour of the Palazzo Ducale. Some questions here : I can't seem to reserve a time to see St. Marks at their website. The transaction never even gets to the payment part but just continues to "think" and then kicks me out. Also anyone taken this particular tour of the Doge's Palace? Is it worth the extra fee or is it better to just explore on your own? We're not big on tours, but this has some extra access, right?

Day 3 - Rialto area and vaporetto to at least Murano, Burano and possibly Torcello.
We'd also like to check out Ca Macana, a mask making workshop in Dorsoduro
Any thoughts? Are we doing too little? Anything we really shouldn't miss that isn't here. Ca D'oro? Thanks in advance for all suggestions. Also we'd love to try a cecchetti bar that isn't completely seafood. Thanks again.
