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. Venise is magic.
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.
Vérone was a nice city to visit, nice to walk around, relax, and have dinner or a cappuccino in a cafe. Not much for a whole day, but worth a stop. The Romeo/Juliet stuff is overrated and a bit touristy, but cute. It's a nice city for a relaxing evening.
Venise 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!
Venise is cool and you can do anything there... but there are a lot of pigeons!
I agree about the Rolling Venise 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.
