Tips for visiting Venice Nov 05, 2008
•You will get lost. Everyone does. Just enjoy it and explore the island because you’ll always find your way. There are yellow signs all over directing you to the tourist sites like Rialto Bridge and San Marco Sq. Alot of the hotel maps are not totally accurate and missing some streets but they suffice.

•Go to Nico’s for the best Gelati around. A bit cheaper too. Nico’s is on Fondam Zattere allo S. Santo. Along the Canale Della Giudecca.

•Go to San Marco at night after dark. It is the most romantic place in the world. You don’t have to eat there but it’s nice if you wish to. Three of the restaurants there have like bands playing classical music in the square. You look around and everyone is in good spirits.

•Ae Oche Pizza also along the Canale Della Giudecca on Fondam Zattere ai Gesuati is very good.

•You can walk all of Venice in a day or two.

•There is a wonderful piazza just over the Accademia Bridge. Dinner is cheaper there than in San Marco or on the Grand Canal.

•The market is cheaper on the South side of the Rialto Bridge, not the San Marco side.

•Make sure your hairdryer is compatible with the European outlets. Not only do you need outlet adapters but your appliances have to be compatible. Otherwise you are stuck using the hotel provided hairdryer. (see pics)

•Using your credit card or taking out a couple of large withdrawals from the ATM is the best way to exchange for euros. Currency exchange shops cost quite a bit. Most credit cards charge the current Wall Street exchange rate plus a 3% fee for each purchase. Most places accept credit cards but you should have some cash just in case.

We were lucky my brother in-law is Italian so we got him to do the talking and it was not too bad on the commmunicating part. The Gondolas were a one off pricey experience but we enjoyed it. but over all the city and islands are lovely.
