Venice is just so pretty. The surrounding islands like Burano are so colorful and dreamy. I was there for a weekend and it was so relaxing. I loved it. One tip for solo travellers: Don't be alone very late in the city alleys because you might get lost.Posted: May 30, 2023
I highly recommend going to Burano and Murano islands. Burano is an island with lots of colorful buildings. It’s famous for its traditional handmade lace. When you’re in Venice walk in the opposite direction to all the tourists. Aqua Alta Libreria bookshop is also worth a visit. I stayed in Venezia Mestra (the mainland part of Venice). It’s a lot cheaper than staying in Venice itself. I also recommend doing a walking history tour of Venice. It was quite interesting. As for food look for little alleyways and squared away from the tourist areas. You get more local and authentic foods there. I didn’t find it too difficult to navigate my way around Venice. There are painted signs on the wall to some of the bigger attractions like San Marco Square and Rialto Bridge. It takes about 30-40 minutes to walk from one side of the island to the next though there are lots of water taxis (though quite expensive). It’s cheaper to take a Vaporetto.Posted: May 23, 2023
Venice is a city full of History, where you can visit anothers centuries through its heritage monuments. It's very beautiful and quiet off-season. I really recommand you this city, and if you like Modern Art, go to the Peggy Guggenheim Museum, a really cute and quiet place.Posted: May 4, 2023Experienced: February, 2023
I was on a solo trip to Venice and I stayed at the Anda hostel and honestly, it was amazing. I felt so safe, it was clean, had lots of social events, and it was cheap as well. Overall, I felt so safe in Venice as a solo female traveler, however, it was very easy to get lost in Venice but I think that was the best part.Posted: April 13, 2023
Away from the tourist hordes, Venice is charming and authentic. I wandered without a destination and off the tourist path. I was able to observe Venetian life in the neighborhoods of the back canals and streets. It was wonderful. But I also did the touristy stuff too. Loved the Doge Palace. Enjoyed riding random water buses.Posted: April 9, 2023
Venice was an incredible destination, and I regret not planning a longer stay than just one night. Nonetheless, I had a fantastic time going on a canal tour and visiting the islands of Murano and Burano. However, I encountered a challenge while departing from Venice as I did not have a return ticket and almost missed my train. Unfortunately, the last direct train was already sold out, and I had to wait for two hours to catch a train that required multiple stops and transfers.Posted: February 24, 2023
Venice is lovely, but you can see the highlights and Burano and Murano in two days. It's a beautiful city but very crowded and touristic.Posted: October 24, 2022
Venice is Disneyland. Less than 10000 actual venetians live there. The entire city is an airbandb. Add in the thousands of cruise ship day trippers, the hordes of tour groups pushing and shoving, bad overpriced food and it doesn't even have the Disney charm. I would avoid Venice like the plague.Posted: October 2, 2022
I personally do not like Venice. I mean it’s beautiful and unique so it’s definitely hands down a must see. BUT, having travelled all over Italy multiple times, it is my least favorite city. It’s very small and there are SO MANY TOURISTS that it reminded me of Times Square in NYC. I love big cities and Rome is one of my favorites, but just felt that Venice is too small for the amount of tourists there. And it just wasn’t for me. It’s a bit harder to find good restaurants as there’s a lot of tourist traps as well.Posted: September 10, 2022
Things to do: * Took a day trip to Burano * Visited Acqua Alta bookstore * Visited St. Mark's Square * Took a ride on the gondola * Visited Rialto Bridge and watched the sunset there Safety: I felt very safe. Budget: * Breakfast: 9 € * Gondola ride: 80 € for 30 minutes * Venetian mask: 20 € * Lunch: 20 € * Accommodation: 100 €/night * Venetian Spritz: 3 € Accommodation: I've stayed at the Generator. It was nice and clean place. Recommendations: Don’t take expensive private water taxis. The Vaporetto (Venetian public waterbus) is cheap and reliable.Posted: July 14, 2022
