    Venice


    0 Not allowed!
    Ladies and gentlemen, I'm thinking of going to Venice for a short break with die Frau. As I don't have much time to do any research I thought I'd ask the NSC throng of travellers for the dos and donts.

    I like to "see" places via their food and drink and people watching so tips in these areas, and areas to stay, will be appreciated. We're going to the Damien Hirst exhibition if it helps.

    Expect a "where can I see the blah-blah game in Venice" thread and some "obviously abroad" posts to the craft beer thread nearer the time to remind you that I'm away.

    Thank you in advance.

      Do: Have a good wander, but ensure to have time to spare as you WILL get lost. This is the best way to discover a great local restaurant, which is a far cheaper option than anything near St Marks Square.

      Don't: Eat or drink anywhere near St Marks Square.

      I'm there this Wednesday & Thursday. Been there many times, but still expect to get lost again!

      Stay at a place where you can get a water taxi straight from the airport to the canal entrance of your hotel, great way to start the break

      Get away from the touristy bits to find places to eat and drink. You'll save a fortune. Oh you will get lost.

      This sounds excellent.

      Buy a coffee, hot chocolate or beer in St Mark's Square - and just sit and soak up the atmosphere!

      Water taxi is a good shout... if not from the airport, then out to the Lido, Burano and/or Murano.
