Veneto Comments

Please reread history and you will realize that you need to stay in Venice not two days but two years to appreciate what the town has to offer! Venice is not Disneyland! Every stone is a piece of true history here. If you don't like culture and art and architecture, stay at home. Please pay respect to Venice, bow to Venice and all that Venice offered to the world, from Vivaldi to Tiziano to Casanova and learn to appreciate Italy. Italy is history.
Venice is cool and you can do anything there... but there are a lot of pigeons!
Don't bother buying a travel card, Venice is so small you can walk around easily and it's a nice way to see the city.
When you arrive in Venice go to the tourist info booth and get a "Rolling Venice" card. It's worth the price just for the money you save on vaporetto passes alone.
Venice is a must-see for Italy.
I agree about the Rolling Venice card and also the Venice Museo Card, which gets you into all the big and also all the little museums. You can get one at the big museum across the square from San Marcos Cathedral (I forget what the museum is called, but it's huge and directly across San Marcos Square). Going to the little museums will really get you away from the crowds and into local areas. We got lost and asked several locals how to get here or there and even though we spoke English and they spoke Italian, they knew what we wanted and on two occasions, we were personally escorted by locals to our destinations! The locals are super friendly, helpful, and will go out of their way to help you. And yes, don't be afraid to get lost. The whole place is interconnected so eventually you'll come back to start.
