Day 1 - Venice, Isola di Murano


When you arrive at the Venice train station you have a choice; you can either carry luggage to your hotel or take a water taxi. Now, the price of the taxi may put you off but it is a small price to pay to not be one of those pitiful souls seen dragging their luggage behind them through the narrow streets and over the very steep little bridges that are so plentiful in Venice. Plus, how cool is a water taxi? Where else in the world can you even hail a water taxi? Drop the cash and arrive in style at your hotel. Once you have settled in you can start exploring. The Ponte di Rialto is nearby. From there, move to Piazza San Marco to visit the Basilica di San Marco and climb the Campanile. For lunch you’re going to Osteria a la Campana. At least once before you leave Venice you have to try some pasta al nero di seppia. Your afternoon will be spent at the island of Murano. Remember that you still have two days left to discover Venice. At Murano you can visit the glass museum, Museo Vetrario and various glassware shops. Also worth visiting is the Basilica di S. Donato. Once back in Venice your task for dinner is to find Anice Stellato. You will work up an appetite and will see some back streets on your way.

Day 2 - Venice


Hiring a guide may not seem like an obvious way to discover a new city. A guide is an invaluable resource for taking in as much of the local culture as possible in a short amount of time. Whether you use the guide service listed here or another one, try to do a little research first to get a good one. Also, important for today is the opera at La Fenice. This is something that you should schedule well in advance. The theatre season fills up quickly and you may not get seats, especially for more popular shows. After your guided tour of Venice you could visit the Galleria dell’Accademia, which houses many of the Venetian masters. Also, recommended are the Palazzo Ducale and the Ponte dei Sospiri. After the opera, head to Il Paradiso Perduto for late night fun.

Day 3 - Venice


On your last day you will most certainly want to go back to San Marco for more photos. You should also spend some time away from the areas you have already seen. Visit L’Arsenale and the gothic church Madonna dell’Orto. To round out your study of Venetian art visit the Museo Correr. Before leaving be sure to visit Piazza San Polo and take a ride on a gondola.
