Solo travel experience

I've been to Venice in February. It felt very safe and it was easy to get around on the water buses. I stayed in an AirBnB on the Grand Canal and the street it was on was always busy with lots of shops, cafes, and restaurants so it was easy to pop out for food at night time and sit in a cafe and watch the world go by. A great city to wander around.

Solo travel experience

I visited Venice alone and I didn't feel unsafe. I was never out really late but I didn't feel I needed to hurry back before dark. After dark, all the bridges and narrow alleys of Venice looked the same, so I used things as landmarks to make sure I was heading the right back - statues, shop window displays, etc.

Solo travel experience

The city on the water is very impressive and I've never seen anything like that before! There were SO MANY tourists. I've been there two days and on the second day I went off the main island and it felt much more authentic. I really recommended taking a swim in the sea and taking late evening public transportation boats.
