Venice is a beautiful city that is on many peoples’ ‘must visit’ or bucket lists. There are plenty of beautiful pastel buildings, gondolas, water canals, cultural treats, and history in that tiny location. Daniel and I visited recently for the first time, and we compiled a list of things you should know and expect before booking and visiting Venice based on our own personal experiences.
Traveling is fun, but sometimes it will get pricey if you start going to a lot of museums, exhibitions, or pay-to-enter locations. We had quite the long vacation planned with lots of traveling, so looking for free things to do while still enjoying and absorbing the history and culture of Venice was necessary.
Recently Daniel and I took a trip to Venice, Italy ourselves. It was our first big trip together and definitely a memorable one. We saw a lot, learned a lot, and it was a great stepping stone into the rest of our vacation to Dubrovnik, Greece, and Rome.
