My husband made an impromptu stop in Vérone on our way to Venice, and Verona turned out to be a highlight of our trip. Verona is beautiful! I love that city. Don't miss it if you are traveling in northern Italy.
Venise is beautiful. But be warned it can be expensive and there is a limited amount of things to do. I wouldn't recommend staying more than 2 days. The St. Mark's area is super touristy and so the crowds are large, and prices high. Go there and then move on to other parts of the city (I personally enjoyed the area around the train station). Grocery stores, and cheap Pizzarias/bakeries/sandwhich shops are easy to find so buy your breakfast and lunch there to save on food costs.
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.
Truly a magical place! I found Venise 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!
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 Vérone card, which is good value and covers most of the churches and museums.
Venise is absolutely beautiful. The architecture is breathtaking. This is a must-see city. Go to St. Mark's, it is free to visit inside but photography is not allowed. But it is magnificent, breathtaking inside. The Piazza San Marco outside the basilica is also very nice. Just walking around is nice. Beware of water taxi drivers trying to get your fare - for a similar price you can get an all day ticket on the ferries. These guys will catch you as you enter the city and show you which way to go - to their taxi. Ignore them and get a ferry. It is worth catching a ferry and staying on it to see the city from the water. Everything else is very expensive. Beware of restaurants who display a price list out the front - they will charge heaps for drinks (even soft drinks) and for "services" and even for "complementary" food. Venice is absolutely amazing. Put it on your list.
