Veneto Comments

I have visited Venezia six times, as I think it is the most beautiful and unique place I have ever seen. I have been to every continent in the world and I still get drawn back to Venice. The history, art, culture, and romance of this city is truly remarkable. The food is superb, but the food in all of Italy is superb anyway. My favourite city, my favourite country -- if you appreciate the best go see for yourself.
Please reread history and you will realize that you need to stay in Venezia 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.
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 Verona card, which is good value and covers most of the churches and museums.
Venezia 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.
We did not like Venezia. 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.
Venezia is a must-see for Italy.
