Three things were not enough, so here are three more things you can do in Venice. Why didn’t I just make a list of 6 things to do in Venice? Well, it is easier for me to handle three at a time, and I think it’s easier for you, the reader, to get bite sized information than an overwhelming list. I digress:

1) Visit Murano or Burano

I must admit that I was not originally impressed with Murano. It was sold to me as a better version of Venice. In fact, it is like Venice, but smaller, who would want that? Now that I think of it though, maybe some people would (after visiting Venice enough time). Murano is famous for its continuing tradition as a glass producer. There are still plenty of shops who offer tours for 5 Euro and produce some of the finest glass in Italy. While I didn’t personally have time to visit Burano, I have been assured that it is similar, which is why I clumped them into a single entry.

2) Take a Gondola (of course)

Everyone who has dreamed of going to Italy has this on their list of things to do. However, I thought I would add it anyways. Yes, it is 80 Euros per ride as I mentioned before, and that is a lot of money. However, if you are like me and rode more than 10 hours on a plane (actually mine was 16) to get here, just cough it up. It is a pretty cool experience, especially if you get a gondola driver ( I don’t know what else to call him) like we did.

3) Wander off into the Alleys of Venice

Small Church

In how many cities could you say, “Oh, I wondered off into this alley and I bumped into this beautiful church,” or, “I wondered into an alley and the dead end was a gorgeous canal,” or, “while going through some random alley, I bumped into a palace.” While it is a bit scary to wonder off into unknown roads, especially in a foreign country, it is extremely difficult to get lost in Venice. The city is filled with signs of “To Rialto,” and, “To the Train Station,” which makes it near impossible to get lost. Just bring a map, as every town square is well lit and labeled.
