Young Couple Headed to Italy for the Biennale!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I have enjoyed reading the posts so far and have found them quite helpful. My husband and I are planning a trip to Venice, Italy in early June and then extending our trip to Florence and Rome. I have a couple of question that I could use some help on though!

1. I've heard San Marco is a great place to stay in Venice but the Biennale takes place in Castello. Does anyone have a recommendation for a hotel that would be situated somewhere in the middle? Or if we stay in San Marco are we still close enough to the Biennale?

2. I have read that the Casa Howard is a good place to stay in both Florence and Venice. Any other recommendations?

3. Besides flight, lodging, insurance, and train trips, would an additional $150 per day ($75 each person) be a good amount for food and spending money? We aren't big spenders and we won't be buying a lot of souvenirs. Just a few things here and there.

4. What are the must do events and activities? We love art, culture and history...

Thank you all so much!
