Top 10 Things to Do in Venice, Italy

Venice | Source

There aren't too many places on this earth that when you see them for the first time they give you that, “Oh My God, Wow”, feeling. For me, Venice, Italy was one of those places. The first time I stepped out of the train station onto the plaza I felt like I had been transported into some kind of time warp and deposited into a whole new world. It had that kind of effect on me. I’m not sure that everyone who steps from that train station into the world of Venice will have that same feeling that I did, but I can assure you of one thing, you have entered into a place that you will not soon forget.

Before I turn Venice into something that it’s not let’s get one thing perfectly clear, Venice is crowded with tourists, twenty million every year to be exact. It would appear that if there were an off-season in Venice then it is a very short one that occurs during the colder, wetter, winter months. And one other thing about Venice, it is also slowly decaying and slowly sinking. In what other city in the world could one say that this is all part of the charm and wonder of city?

Having made three visits to Venice over the last five years I would like to offer up a list of things that can be seen on a three to four day visit to Venice. Some of them will be the obvious, and some of them will be not so obvious. No matter how you decide to spend your time in Venice I am certain that it will be a memorable experience.

Accommodations tip

For a great place to stay check out B&B You and Me. You can read their reviews on Tripadvisor :

Visit Piazza San Marco during the day and at night

St. Marks Square is the hub of activity in Venice. During the day it seems that everyone in Venice is in the square at the same time. And for good reason. From St. Marks Square it is possible to visit the Basilica, Doges Palace, and climb the Bell tower. While the days of tourists feeding the pigeons are gone, it is not allowed anymore due to the potential human health hazards; the piazza still has just as many pigeons as visitors.

What can be better than visiting Piazza San Marco during the day? Visiting at night. After the sun goes down the piazza is transformed into a serenade of music as the various cafes alternate playing music to entertain their guests. Should you want to sit and enjoy the evening be prepared to pay a hefty price for that drink. What most visitors tend to do is to leisurely stroll the square following the sound of the music. With the piazza all lit up at night it makes for a beautiful setting.

Tip for St. Mark's Basilica

Get the skip the line ticket. For 1 euro it guarantees you won't be waiting in line.

St. Mark's Basilica

Walking into St. Marks Basilica is another one of those wow moments that you’ll not soon forget. Consecrated in 1094 the structure has undergone much alteration over the centuries. The Cathedral sits at the eastern end of Piazza San Macro and is connected to the Doge’s Palace. Once inside the Cathedral you will immediately be drawn to the beautiful gilded Byzantine mosaics, which cover over 8000 square meters with gold, bronze and various types of stone.

The line to enter the Cathedral forms early so either plan on visiting late in the afternoon or you can purchase a skip the line pass for only one euro which allows you to enter without waiting in line. You can do this on-line at the official web-site of the Basilica. Simply print out your receipt voucher and be sure to bring it with you.

Doges Palace

Tip for visiting Doges Palace

Take the Secret Itineraries Tour. For a few extra euros get a guided tour and visit areas of the palace not accessible to regular ticket holders.

Bridge of Sighs

Tour Doges Palace

Built as the residence of the Doge of Venice (Supreme authority of the republic of Venice) the palace makes for a fascinating visit. The Secret Itineraries Tour is worth the few extra euros as it takes you into areas of the palace not accessible to the general public. The tour takes you into secret passageways, the prison, the interrogation room, the armament room and on to the Bridge of Sighs which connects the palace to the prisons that were built on the other side of the canal.

After the tour take your time and stroll the many beautiful rooms in the palace including The Sala del Maggior Consiglio or Great Hall. This huge hall is where up to 2000 members of the Great Council would convene. The impressive hall is amazing with its gilded ceiling and walls covered in 76 frescoes of past Doges. The painting titled “Paradise” by Venetian painter Tintoretto adorns one wall of the hall and is reputed to be the largest oil painting in the world measuring 74 feet by 30 feet.

Transportation Tip

If you are staying in Venice for more than a day consider buying a multi-day vaporetto pass. This will save you some money.

Take the Water Bus down the entire length of the Grand Canal

Grab a good seat on the water bus and take a ride down the entire length of the Grand Canal. What better way to experience Venice than to ride down the heart of the Grand Canal while taking in all that Venice has to offer. Watch the Gondola’s as they glide their way in and around the water buses. Observe the delivery boats as they deliver everything that Venice needs to keep it up and running. Notice the finely polished wooden taxi boats as they deliver their passengers to their destination. This is what Venice is all about, enjoy the ride.

Visit the Market early one morning

The market in Venice is one of the most organized and cleanest open markets that I have seen. If you are looking for fresh fruits, vegetables, meats or fish then this is the place to come. Even if you are not looking to purchase anything it is a wonderful place to walk and take photos. The fresh fruits and vegetables make for a colorful display that will have you wanting to sample the amazing array of locally grown produce and fruit. The market is located not far from the Rialto Bridge just off of the Grand Canal.

Murano Island

Murano Island is where the world famous Murano glass is from and makes for an interesting visit. While Murano’s reputation suggests that it is a tourist trap designed to lure visitors into their showrooms it is certainly worth a visit. If you’ve never seen delicate glassware being made it is a fascinating art to watch. It is simply amazing what these craftsmen are able to do. If you are looking to purchase Murano glass while on the island be certain that you are getting what you pay for. Not all of the shops are selling glass from the island so buyer beware.

Burano Island

Burano is probably the one stop that many visitors overlook and skip when visiting Venice. Everyone wants to see the glass making on Murano, and Burano is much farther out (40 minutes) in the lagoon so it’s a good ride. Not only is Burano worth a visit, but I much preferred the laid back, colorful, and easy going style of Burnao. Famous for its lacework, the island is dotted with brightly colored homes that make for some wonderful photo opportunities. Also worth seeing is the Church of San Martino with its leaning Bell Tower.

Take a Cicchetti Tour of Venice

I had not heard of the Cicchetti (chi-KET-tee) Tour until one of my traveling companions brought it up as something that we might consider doing that was a little different. After checking it out we decided to give it a go and I have to admit that it was a wonderful experience. Cicchetti are the small local appetizers that can typically be found in the local bars all over Venice. They can include a multitude of delicious snacks including various bruschetta, tiny sandwiches, seafood, cheeses, and various vegetables to name just a few. And to top off the scrumptious snacks you get wash it all down with a little glass of some local wine. On the Cicchetta Tour that we did we visited five local pubs trying a great assortment of local snacks and some very interesting local wines. Give it a try; I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. It is also a great way to mingle with the locals and discover some of the off the beaten path cafes and pubs.

Rialto Bridge

This is probably the most crowded area in all of Venice. It seems that everyone wants to have his or her picture taken on this most famous bridge of Venice. Between the shops, the crowds, and the tourists getting on and off the nearby Rialto Water Bus stop, this area is a symphony of non-stop motion and activity. It is also a great spot to watch the coming and goings on the Grand Canal, if you can snag a spot. If you want to avoid some of the crowds then visit early or late. In the morning you can watch as Venice comes alive with the Grand Canal full of boats making their morning deliveries. At night this is one of the most beautiful spots in Venice with the lights reflecting off of the canal in a kaleidoscope of color.

Rialto Bridge

Get lost for a few hours - maps not allowed

There is nothing like wandering the back streets of Venice with no particular agenda and no map to guide you. It is here that you will discover the real Venice, the Venice where the locals live, and shop, and play, and go about their daily lives. If the crowds have started to get to you then this is the perfect remedy. Grab your camera, leave the map behind and wander aimlessly around Venice for a truly wonderful experience. When you want to find your way back simply start following the signs leading you to the Rialto Bridge or San Macro Square and soon enough you’ll have your bearings.

Ciao for now.

I suspect that most first time visitors to Venice have the same experience as you, and me also. But we were fortunate to return twice since then and it was definitely a different experience on the return trips. It is most certainly unlike anywhere else that I have been, almost like a fairy tale.

I've been to Venice once, and it was such a strange experience...unlike anywhere else I've visited. Your hub makes me want to come back and do some of the things I didn't get to do, and maybe be a little more grounded this time around, if it's at all possible in Venice :)

Hi Alun. Thank you. It's very rewarding to know that this hub helped in some small way make your trip to Vencie enjoyable. There is so much to do so one really needs to prioritize what they want to see as you mentioned.

Isn't Vencie amazing. No other place quite like it. We've been back three times and never tire of it. I look forward to reading your hubs on your trip Alun. Thanks again and have a great day.

I've just recently returned from Venice - surely the most unique city in the world for the history of the buildings and the geography of the canals - and I really would say that it is a must-visit destination for anyone who has the opportunity to go there. After my visit I can concur with all the advice on this page, particularly about the Basilica, the Grand Canal, and the other islands. And the advice about 'getting lost' in Venice is really worth taking on board. I will be writing a few hubs of my own in due course but regarding this hub by bdegiulio, I can say this:

I only had about three and a half days to explore (and that included time on Murano and Burano) so not everything in Venice could be seen. In those circumstances time really must be used wisely and so articles such as this one are especially useful. I actually printed up this page as well as a few others to take with me in order to ensure that I saw as much as I could of the best sites. This article is well written and beautifully photographed, and for a short visit is probably more useful than a detailed guide book as it focuses on what must be prioritised. If you are planning on going to Venice for a limited time, read this and plan your days accordingly.

Thanks Bill for a nice hub which certainly helped to make my rather hectic visit to Venice a little more rewarding than it might otherwise have been. Voted up. Alun.

Thank you Raynold. Venice is wonderful, can't wait to return. We discovered the cicchetti tour on our last visit, what a great way to see a different side of Venice. I don't remember the specifics of what I tried but I can tell you I tried everything, mozzarella, cuddle fish, and everything else. It was all wonderful. Thanks so much for stopping by, have a great day.

Hello bdegiuglio, I loved this hub, it's very interesting! I saw you suggested the cicchetti tour on your hub, and I absolutely agree with you. I found some positive reviews in many forums about

I visited the site and I discover an interesting blog about the history of Venice and about the italian wines/tapas.I decided to book a classic wine tour (5 bars+gondola) and I can say without any doubt that it was fantastic: food and wine were just delicious and our guide too, it was a great way to discover Venice out of the beathen path.I would heartily recommend it to anyone.

Did you try the mozzarella in carrozza? In my opinion the best cicchetto ever!

I tried the one of rosticeria gislon (near Rialto) and it was amazing

I really liked this hub about my favourite city! Thank you!!

Hi Daniel. That's great. What you found was a Cicchetti Tour. Aren't they great? We did the same on our second visit to Venice and the young lady took us to some great sections of Venice that we would not have otherwise stumbled upon.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I'll check out the website.

Daniel 2 years ago

I've been in Venice three weeks ago and I tried a wine tour with a selection of wines and appetizers.

The tour was amazing, also because you can see many parts of the town, enjoying in every district a different wine and a different cicchetto(the venetian appetizer).

I found the tour on this site

There's a day tour and a night tour, I tried the one with five wines and the gondola.

Hi Bill,

Loved this sooooo much! You have written a really wonderful tour of Venice for all newcomers to this fabulous city and surrounds. Love your tips which are definitely worth taking note of. Avoiding queuing is an excellent one! I look forward to going to Venice, it is one of my must see places in Italy and plan on doing it in the not so distance future. Murano Glass I adore and have bought a bit over the years so that would be a must see with Burano. I also agree with you 200% on getting lost with no map and see what happens!! It is the best way to see real life of a place.
