Other Suggested Activities

Venice is easy to navigate with the right information.  There are so many wonderful things to see.  I enjoy just walking the streets to see the everyday life of the locals.  I found the Rick Steves Venice Travel Books the best for my trip there. I highly recommend it.

 These books include Maps, Walking Tours, Hotels, Restaurants, Pubs, and information on Attractions.  Also included are best time to see the attractions.


These activities are a highlight for some amazing things to do while you’re in Venice.  See my overview of Venice in “Heartbeat of Venice” and for a one day itinerary  “One Busy Day Venice.  If you’re looking for more travel locations visit 1AdventureTraveler for ideas.
