Venecia is a beautiful lady. But Venice is as well robbing people's money. They charge 6 to 8 Euro an hour for internet, 9 to 12 Euro for a washing a load and drying, and up to 35 Euro for a hostel bed. Be prepared to pay more than in other expensive cities. Tip, if you crave a cappuccino, drink it standing at the cafe's counter -- costs between 1.20 and 1.40 Euro instead 2.50 Euro sitting down. Look in the side streets for cheap bars and restaurants. That way, you have a cheap stay and save money for more travels.
Venecia is cool and you can do anything there... but there are a lot of pigeons!
Venecia 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!
Venecia 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.
Most accomodations are not near the train station, but that's a bonus. Since Venecia is comprised of tons of little islands, if you want to stay in the heart of the city, then you would want to stay away from the train station anyway. The walk from the station to the first real bridge bringing you into Venice is great (you can't get lost, it is one winding road) but once you cross the bridge it can get confusing. Just be polite and ask a local for help (or point on a map) and you shoud have no problem. As touristy as it is, take a gondola. If you can find an open post in the middle of the day, go for it (most people try to do early morning or early evening) and because there wont be a long line, you may be able to negotiate the price. And of course, in the evening you must go to Piazza San Marco, one of the best piazzas in Italy to see the church, listen to live music, and have a good meal.
Truly a magical place! I found Venecia 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!
