Part of a Complete Trip to Venice

It may be a little on the touristy side, but I really enjoyed getting to see Venice from the water and getting to sail through the back canals of the city was something that was super memorable from my trip! It was also interesting to talk to our gondolier and get the perspective on Venice from a local!

Agreed with Linnea

The gelato is the way to go. Gondolas were alright, bit boring if you're an adventurer. Our tour guide told us the best piece of advice concerning Venice that I've ever heard- "DO NOT do all the touristy things and just stay in the main squares. Its an island, go get lost exploring and you'll eventually make your way back!" Going down the back alleys and exploring all over was a far better use of time! Plus it gave us time to work off the first gelato and return for a second :)


I mean go for it, if you want. But I'd rather spend that money on gelato.
