Veneto Comentários

Veneza is beautiful, but very expensive. Don't waste your money on water taxis, and if you really need to try a gondola, use one of the traghettos which take you from one side of the Grand Canal to the other - only 50E! And for cheap food, check out the Cafe dei Frari right across from the Santa Maria dei Frari church. There's no pricelist outside so you know it's cheap - I got a panini and drink for 5E, and the cafe has super nice baristas and great character. A must see.
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.
When you arrive in Veneza go to the tourist info booth and get a "Rolling Venice" card. It's worth the price just for the money you save on vaporetto passes alone.
Veneza is cool and you can do anything there... but there are a lot of pigeons!
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.
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.
