The best time to visit Venice is early spring when the weather is warm but not too cold. The visit at the height of summer can be very wet and humid, spring time a bit more!
Make sure you arrive elegantly by taking a water taxi from the airport. It will be expensive, around 100 euros, but if you are with friends or agree to participate, 25 euros or less per person is worth it and will be left at the nearest landing stage to the hotel.
If you are staying for three days or more, invest € 33 in a 72-hour smart card. Unless you intend to sit in your hotel all day (why are you !?) saving money on individual tickets and much easier, you can simply validate your ticket by passing it over the reader as you enter each landing. -The stage.
Do not go to the most expensive hotels, unless you intend to spend most of your time there. There are so many cheap hotels in Venice that are quite good rules! There is no shortage of gondoliers that promote your habits, and for a special occasion with a special friend, the gondola ride down the Grand Canal is unforgettable. If gondola trips are out of your price range, you can cross the channel via Tragetti – gondola ferries – for only 50 cents.
You should explore on foot. Don't panic when you get lost, which is almost certain, there are delights that can be found in many discoveries that you can find until you get yourself back on track. The yellow street signs on the buildings show the way to San Marco, Rialto and Academia. Just get away from the crowds, down the alleys and across the bridges, and you'll soon lose yourself in the back areas of Venice. Go to Castello, Cannaregio or Dorsoduro, Sestiri.
Go to St. Mark's Square either in the early morning, before the day hikers arrive, or at night, when they leave. After dark, lights and music add a new atmosphere to this charming place. Fast food aside, if you are on a budget, don't eat within a stone throwing distance of popular tourist places. Instead, look for places where locals eat to get a real sense of Venice, and you'll save a lot of money this way!
The Peggy Guggenheim Collection is very popular and well worth a visit. Even if modern art is not right for you, there is a beautiful carved garden and terrace in the foreground, where you can sit and watch my coming and the Grand Canal.
I hope you will find these travel tips useful, just because Venice is known to be hopelessly romantic;
