When visiting Venice, it is necessary for visitors to immediately find a decent accommodation. Good rooms are usually available at around 75 Euro, including breakfast and parking. The next step is to go to the Grand Canal by going to the bus stop.
It would be necessary for us to purchase a combination of bust and boat ticket, which is good for 24 hours. The first thing to do is to take the one-hour boat trip to around the island. Bus in Venice can be stuffy and hot during peak tourism session. From James Bond’s Casino Royale to Looney Tunes’ Bugs Bunny, gondolas are iconic tourism transportation.
Venice is also known for its arching bridges and buildings located at the waterline. The St. Marl’s Square is popular for its many pigeons and it is possible to feed these birds. There’s a church nearby with its attractive mosaics and opulent gold leaves on each dome and arch. After travelling for a few hours, it would be the time to have lunch. However, it should be noted that restaurants located near the canal are usually more expensive.
Good lunch could include standard Italian cuisine, such as a wide variety of pasta and pizza. However, more common meals, like sandwiches are also available. After some refreshment and rest, it is a good idea to go back to the canal and our walk can be a bit slow, due to the both window and real shopping. There are small souvenirs that we can purchase along the canal, such as necklaces, bracelets and earrings. It is a good time to stay along the canals, by mixing walking around and sitting. The area is large enough for us to explore until night time.
The food is generally excellent for people who seek to get a good dinner after long walks along the canals. It should be noted that people who want to have a dinner for four people may need to spend about 100 Euro. After dinner, there would be another rush hour as tourists are flocking back to their hotels. Bus can be full and alternatively, we can call a taxi. Back to the hotel, it is time for a hot shower to release the tension after the long walk. Many hotels in Venice could be indicated by freeway noise, but it is part of the experience.
Many hotels in Venice include breakfast in the package. Some soft boiled eggs, toasts and ham slices should be enough to start the day. After spending the first day, travelling around Venice can still be quite confusing and it is a good time to take the boat to the Murano island.
The place is famous for its glassware industry. There are glass bowls, glass decorations and other items that we can purchase in Venice. A common activity in the Murano Island is to watch how glassware is made. It can be quite fascinating to see how people could create many good things by blowing a glob of orange, molten glass. The visit to the Murano Island should be completed after mid-day and we can continue our activity in the mainland.
