    Venice, Veneto Region, Italy
    Murano is a great place to base yourself when seeing Venice, it's one of the smaller islands in the archipeligo, nice and quiet, easy access by water taxi.

    Mestre, Veneto Region, Italy
    The township next to Venice where a lot of Venetians live... most commute daily for work to Venice... not a bad deal for travellers too as Venice hotels are not just expensive but also oftern full ... so if you land there without a booking, head to Mestre for a stay...regular coaches run between Mestre and Venice... Mestre itself is mostly residential but has some nice places to eat and drink... of course, nearby Venice is gorgeous to say the least...

    Good walking shoes/gumboots for rainy seasons. To get around you either have to be fond of walking (a lot of bridges and no cars) or be prepared to spend a lot of money on boat transportation.

    Venice, Veneto Region, Italy
    I would say this is one of the most expensive cities, or at least a city with a lot of tourist traps!!! Here I had my expensivest and worst pizza ever! I still cant believe how much they could take for a pizza and a glass of beer! And of course, there were no price list outside the restaurante. And the price for a gondole tour was also a joke, even if that is one of the main reason of seeing Venice and experience a gondole ride, I still didnt spend my money on that. But except the prices, Venice was great. It's so cool that instead of cars everyone has a boat. And the little streets and bridges are really cosy, but be careful not to fall in the water when its dark!!! Or when youre drunk! :) Outside of the "water-area" Venice is'nt really anything special, but the bus prices are cheap and the pizza is better. We found some nice bar street close to our hotel in the Mestre area, wich is located in the other end of the bridge Ponte della Liberta.

    You should see Canale Grande, Rialto, Ponte dei Sospiri and St. Mark's Square! Try vaporettos and gondolas, too.

    Its best to get to the town by bus or train, but even if you come by car you have to opt for parking outside town. From the parking lots/train station you can easily get to one of the vaporetto, sort of like a bigger sized taxi-boat. You can take sightseeing tours or just follow the regular boatline-schedule and get around by public transportation - it is easy, it is cheap and it can get you basically anywhere in town, or even to the adjoining islands (Murano, Burano).
    I would only recommend to take a gondola if you :1. have a lot of money to spend, 2. are travelling with your sweetheart/fiancé/spouse and are very romantic and crazy in love... Otherwise it is a luxury - costs a fortune, but is very stylish and belongs to the main characteristics of town.

    Burano, Veneto Region, Italy
    If travelling to Venice make sure you visit the islands of Murano and Burano. Jump on a water bus, they are very cheap. Watch the glass blowing and lace making, all very quaint. It's like stepping back in time.

    Murano, Veneto Region, Italy
    To get to Murano (One of the many Islands off of Venice) you will need to take a water taxi or traghetto. It is about a 30min boat ride.

    Murano is famour for the venetian glass beads and glass blowers. Try to go to one of the glsblower workshops, you will have a free demonstation and tour of their workshop.

    This is a quite little island and is a must if you want to get away from the crazy tourist throngs on the main island.

    Try not to eat on one of the restaurants or "Bar's" as they are quite expensive, rather find a small local shop and buy some pannini (Sandwedges) and some acqua (Water)

    Definitely get a boat bus ticket for however long you are going to be there. It will save you so much money and a lot of walking. It is really the best way to get around and they have busses that go to the islands of Burano and Murano.
