Venedig is cool and you can do anything there... but there are a lot of pigeons!
Venedig is absolutely amazing. Yes, it's expensive; yes, it's touristy; but it's also got amazing art, culture, history, and food (if you know to avoid the touristy places). I suggest you get a Rolling Venice card -- it'll get you into all the tiny churches that you would otherwise avoid due to multiplying costs, for instance. My other suggestion is to put away your map and wander. Get lost. It's not scary or dangerous (as a young, single female traveler I should know). What's the worst that can happen? You'll wander into the sea? I got lost and found the most amazing series of churches, shops, and bars. The only problem was that I've never been able to find them again since. My last hint is to say "Buon giorno" to the locals. Be nice and you'll find that Italians are (on the whole) the most awesome, generous, and friendly people.
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. Venedig is magic.
When you arrive in Venedig 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.
I agree about the Rolling Venedig 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.
referring to the hotel Al Gallo, 3 stars category: it's a pity the hotel would very nice, proper and well-located, nearby the railway station and in a delicious part of Venedig, it wouldn't be for the service: the welcome was quite horrible, and during the evening the same man argued about the wasted water having the shower!! then spending 100euros he should be politer and permit a second round of coffee in the morning, if one would like, isn't it?
