Venice, one of my dream places I wanted to visit.
San Macro Square
Do you see any different between above gondola and below gondola. The one above is for tourist, cost +/- €150 per gondola near San Macro Square, €60 per boat if you hire the gondola out of the main tourist area. The below gondola is normally for local, just to across the canal, cost €0.50 per ride.
The views from my hostel room in Venice.
My favorite island - Burano Island. It's famous for its lace-making and colourful houses.
Murono Island, famous for its glass making. Visit glass factory, see how they make glass from scratch.
TIPS to Venice:
1) Kikey award "The most expensive public toilet in the world" to Venice Public Toilet. €1.50 per entry. I spent €1.00 to go toilet and have a piece of cake to eat. How?
-> I went to a bakery shop that has toilet just for customer, buy a piece of cake and use the toilet. Make sure they have toilet before you buy something from them. Or go to McD, they have free public toilet. Sometime can try the restaurant, but most of them will said, "sorry, just for customer use."
2) The masks is selling everywhere in Venice. If your Italy trip include Florence, then buy them from San Lorenzo market in Florence. The price in Florence only one third (33%) of the price in Venice.
3) If you under 29, buy transport pass with The Rolling VENICEcard. With Rolling card cost €4, you can buy 72-hour ticket with €18, the total is €22 compare to original price €31. Rolling card also has discount for some restaurants and hotels.
The original price: 12-hour ticket - €14, 24-hour ticket - €16, 36-hour ticket - €21, 48-hour ticket - €26, 72-hour ticket - €31.
4) Go to the clock tower that located at San Giorgio Maggiore Island, instead of the clock tower opposite San Marco church. It is because from that clock tower you will be able to have a view over the Venice and its normally less queue.
