Veneto Comments

I have visited Venice six times, as I think it is the most beautiful and unique place I have ever seen. I have been to every continent in the world and I still get drawn back to Venice. The history, art, culture, and romance of this city is truly remarkable. The food is superb, but the food in all of Italy is superb anyway. My favourite city, my favourite country -- if you appreciate the best go see for yourself.
Truly a magical place! I found Venice to be like an artist's set of a stage. Everything so quaint and individual. Through the magical mazed streets, I will struggle to match this truly unique place!
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 breathtaking. You know you are there when your train is the only thing separating you from the blue waters of the sea. Venice can be touristy, but if you stray off course of the tourist venues, the little narrow alley ways become adventures all of themselves. We met many friendly Venetians who were happy to show us their homes. I fell in love with the musicians who serenaded us while we walked down the streets. There are many bridges each with its own unique view of canal-side doorways. Pigeons are plentiful, yes, but no poopy on me. But watch for mosquitoes, I did get bit by one and I am still recovering, but being bitten by an Italian mosquito is charming any day! Ciao!
Don't bother with Juliet's house museum, despite the hoards of tourists there is not much of interest in there (and uhhm, she didn't actually exist) however it is included on the Verona card, which is good value and covers most of the churches and museums.
We found the supermarket was the best place to get food. Fresh rocket and parma ham was cheap. Ended up making picnic lunches. My favourite thing was just getting lost in the back streets and finding hidden local shops, galleries, and pizzerias. Venice is magic.
