VENICE

Day 1

3) Gelatoteca Suso

8) St. Mark’s Square

A tourist hub but pretty spectacular. Definitely worth walking around!

Once you’ve gotten in your 10,000 steps, head back to the hotel, take a baby nap and clean up for dinner! Do your research ahead of time and make reservations. Remember, Italians eat late (no earlier than 7 PM). I recommend Ai Mercanti. Get to bed early for a busy day tomorrow!


Day 2

Catch The Vaporetto or a private water taxi to Murano Island. Spend an hour or two walking around the island that’s known for it’s beautiful glass blowing. It’s a great place to buy souvenirs that you promised to bring back for friends and family.

Afterward, make your way to the colorful island of Burano, known for it’s lace making and skittle colored buildings. Burano was my favorite part of Venice! Be sure to bring your camera because you’re going to blow up your instagram! Find a nice place to eat lunch on the main canal and enjoy the view! If you’d like a more formal sit-down lunch, give Al Gatto Nero a try.


Tip

  • Take a private water taxi at least once. It’s expensive but it’s a fun experience.

  • Walk as much as you can. The public transportation is 7.50 Euros per person, one way (which is pretty expensive for public transportation). You’ll get there just as fast by foot!
