Planning Your Visit
Save money on transport
The way the city is built, you’ll find yourself using the waterbuses (“vaporetti”) a lot more than expected. These trips can eat into your savings if you’re not careful. Bundle tickets are a great way of avoiding nasty surprises. The price of a 12-hour ticket is roughly equivalent to 3 singles and the relative cost keeps dropping for longer periods (tickets are available for up to a week).
Counters are your friends
Eating and drinking can be very expensive in Venice. Bars and restaurants generally charge more for sitting at a table, so a great way of cutting costs is opting for the counter instead. Surcharges vary with some restaurants charging up to 500% in the busiest tourist areas!
Enjoy the view
The view of the entire city from atop the bell tower on Piazza San Marco, which costs 8 EUR, is one of Venice’s most popular attractions. An insider tip is heading over to San Giorgio Maggiore – the view is arguably better and the privilege only costs 3 EUR.

What people are saying about Venice
We had a lovely experience with Diana who was very knowledgeable about the history of Venice and also great at sharing fun facts. Touring the palace with a guide made it much more meaningful and a great way to learn about the city's roots. Highly recommended!
Just make sure you study which lines go where, and which direction you want to go. And buy a day pass.
