Day 1 Itinerary:
We landed in Marco Polo airport around 11 am to a cloudy overcast day. We hopped on a Alilaguna boat ferry (tickets are $15 and can be purchased at the vending machines ) and 45 minutes later we hopped off with our luggage and made our way toward our Airbnb which was in the Calle neighborhood. After we checked in we got changed and got ready we headed to Saint Mark’s square to explore for the rest of the day, getting lost in the canals and many charming streets. Along the way, stopping by for some pizza and gelato for snacks.
We had dinner at one of the many restaurants in Venezia, I would recommend A Le Tole it. I had Squid Ink Pasta (which made my lips black, yikes, but luckily it come off soon after drinking water!) and Thomas had a shrimp pasta dish. (This clip will be in the vlog) . We finished our meal with dessert and shared a devine slice of tiramisu. After dinner we took a stroll along the grand canal and later strolled along the plaza of Saint Marks square , we people watched, we held hands, and we enjoyed the bands play in the cafes and sat down and enjoyed a nice warm cup of cappuccino.
Day 2 Itinerary
We woke up early at 6 am and got ready to go out. We took a ferry boat through the grand canal. Stopped for a appertivo and vino at a restaurant on the water. Later wondered around the city and got to see the art intallation, we happened to be there during one of the largest art festivals, Biennale Venice. Ended the night for dinner and a stroll.
FROM AIRPORT TO VENICE
You can take a luxurious water Taxi which will cost you about $150 . Or take the Bus or take the Alinguana blue or red line for $15.
he ferries are an easy way to hop on and hop off anywhere in Venice to save your achy feet from walking too much. The “Vapereto” are the ferries, you can purchase tickets at the “bigletti” vending machines or wait in line at the ticket office. There are one way tickets for $2 or you can buy the whole day ticket which allows you to hop on and hop off. Remember to validate your ticket before entering by stamping it at the green machine. They often checks tickets, or else you risk a hefty $100 fine.
- Try one of the many “cicchetti bars’ or appertizer bars. It’s a social gathering and crowds of happy customers spill into the streets.
- For dinner/lunch A Le Tole
- For dinner Rossopomodoro
- For morning Coffee Pasticcaria Da Bonifacio
- For a midday pasta to-go snack Dal Moro
- Best Gelato Suso
I’d recommend Airbnb. To get a $75 free credit sign up and use this code ! There are many nice hotels in Venice that will cost you about $150-500 per night.
