Venise is a must-see for Italy.
Yes, yes -- you will get lost. But just enjoy yourself -- once you get lost, you'll see the best stuff. Really though, if you pick up a good map, it's not too difficult to navigate around. Do beware the mosquitos -- I got bit all over, about three weeks ago, and the bites were huge and scary looking. I still have red marks, although the swelling went away. The food prices are outrageous and the quality mediocre, and always ask how much something costs before ordering -- my husband ordered a beer, regular size, and it ended up costing eight Euro! Oh, and the "sarde en saor?" Skip it, unless you have an affinity for cold sardines. But you have to see Venise at least once in your lifetime! It is breathtakingly beautiful and one-of-a-kind. Definitely go, no matter the mosquitos or food costs.
Please reread history and you will realize that you need to stay in Venise 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.
We did not like Venise. Very very pretty, but nothing to do and millions of pigeons (I got pooed on). If you must go, stay for a day or two -- that's all you'll need. Very very expensive.
Venise 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.
If you're in Vérone in the summer don't miss the "Arena di Verona" summertime outdoor operas. Even if you're not into opera, it's an experience.
