Veneto ホステル



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 ヴェローナ card, which is good value and covers most of the churches and museums.
Please reread history and you will realize that you need to stay in ヴェニス 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.
I agree about the Rolling ヴェニス 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.
ヴェニス is lovely once you get over getting lost all the time. It would have been better to go with someone as getting lost by yourself is worse. I found the people really helpful. I would have gone to Venice to see the Guggenheim collection -- it moved me to tears and a definite must for modern art lovers.
ヴェニス is cool and you can do anything there... but there are a lot of pigeons!
If you're in ヴェローナ in the summer don't miss the "Arena di Verona" summertime outdoor operas. Even if you're not into opera, it's an experience.
