Venice 3 day itinerary

Day 1 in Venice

You can use your first day in Venice to explore the city and the main areas. You can take the boat “vaporetto” and go along the Grand Canal. You’ll see all the beautiful old palaces and gondolas.

In this way you’ll easily arrive to Piazza San Marco and to the Rialto Bridge. I reccomend you to walk through the city and get lost in it. You’ll find out many beautiful corners you would not see otherwise.

You can use your second day in Venice to visit Murano and Burano. Murano and Burano are islands you can reach by boat. You can always use the boat “vaporetto” you used in your first day in Venice.

The best time of the year to visit Venice is when the city is not too busy. Venice infact is busy any time of the year but some periods it’s bearable.

It’s good to go for example in January. In this period the city is enjoyable for both residents and vistors. There is less stress for you while visiting and for the Venetians that are kinder with the tourists.

If you go to Murano for example glass makers will be happier to show you how the glass is made. When shops are too crowded they can’t care well for all customers.

In December and January Venice is cold but if you wear a coat or a jacket you’ll be fine.
