Saint Mark’s Basilica
The opulent Saint Mark’s Basilica is arguably the jewel in Venice’s crown. With its multi-leveled domes, intricate facades and stunning mosaics, it’s a marvel of Italo-Byzantine architecture.
Lido di Venezia
Take a breather from the touristic bustle and visit the charming Lido di Venezia. A short boat ride from the center, it’s where some of Venice’s best (and cheapest!) restaurants are hidden.
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!
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.
From September to November the city is most pleasant.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great Easy, Efficient path from Marco Polo to Venice!
Considered all the options to get from Marco Polo airport to Venice. While shared water taxis seemed to be an option for a spectacular arrival, I felt from the pictures that they would sit too low in the water, be crowded, really not give a good return for cost! The choice for us was the Express Bus! Got our tickets on line and printed them. Stepped out the ground transportation area and there were the buses! The clerks were efficient, understood English, helped with the validation process! The bus was clean. The ride was quick, safe, a really great option to get a feel for the location of Piazzale Roma in Venice. Upon arrival, it is easy to transfer to water taxi (vaporetto) service to the entire city. The vaporetto runs like a metro system with many stops along the canal. Stops often have more than one boarding area, coordinating to the direction and other stops it makes. Look, read and ASK before boarding. The system is cheap and works! You can also walk from P Roma via bridge

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ A good museum with excellent audio guide
The museum is very clear that you will only see replicas of Da Vinci’s work, and it does that job brilliantly. Explaining clearly his artistic importance and engineering genius, there is also a brief history and numerous copies of pages of the codices which are fascinating. The museum would be fabulous for younger visitors. But after a while I pined to see an original creation. My problem – not the museums.
