Venice is unlike any other city in Italy, or the world, in that it requires a bit of prior planning and some basic geographical knowledge. Venice’s attractions are mostly navigable by foot, and thanks to its network of regular vaporetti (waterbuses) servicing the Grand Canal, you can get from one point in the lagoon to another relatively easily.

It’s good to have some understanding of where the main attractions are, or how to get between the islands. Read up beforehand to make your visit to this extraordinary Italian city worthwhile. We hope these useful tips can help you have the most memorable Venetian experience.
