Veneto Comentários

We did not like Veneza. If you must go, stay for a day or two -- that's all you'll need. People there don't know the word politness. If you have lunch at restaurant, check your bill very good because they like to add things that you haven't ordered.
If you're in Verona in the summer don't miss the "Arena di Verona" summertime outdoor operas. Even if you're not into opera, it's an experience.
Veneza 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.
What to do in Veneza? You could just walk, walk, walk down the beautiful streets, drinking poetry of one of the most amazing cities in the world, for months -- if you have soul, that is.
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. Veneza is magic.
Veneza 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.
