Don't drink too much,VERY expensive, was 4-5 Euros
for a bottle of beer two years ago.
i expected it to smell but it didn't
lovely place you will enjoy it :thumbsup:

Don't follow the hordes - step one or two streets away from the main drag (which is littered with mask shops and tourists) and it is calm, peaceful and very beautiful (and no, it doesn't smell!)

If you are going for a drink in the cafes, remember they have a pricing structure depending on where you sit - cheapest drinks sat at the bar - next sat inside - sat outside you will pay the most (a small fortune for a coffee if you are sat outside in Piazza San Marco)

have to agree with the getting lost routine... just follow the streets see where they take you - found some great little jewelry stores etc by doing that.
also - get a ticket for the water bus, a weekly or however long your there, and just ride it all the way round. It must take around an hour ish?.. its a really great way of seeing everything - without paying for an actual tour.
Great time to do it is at night - all the buildings are lit up.

bring a lot of money, is quite expensive and they sell so many lovely things!

have a 'tramezzino' is a typical Venecian sandwich and a 'bellini' typical drink :thumbsup:

We're actually staying on the Lido, so across the water from Venice.
Superior room overlooking the lagoon :)

Got 530 Euros to last for 4-5 days, so should be plenty.

Narfette: Im guessing you can purchase the travel card from the airport in Italy?

Cheers everyone!

Well, finally here! Yay! :w00t:
However, had to pay £32 to EasyJet for our bags as none were booked in for us :x

Got to the hotel, and a nice suprise for us!
