Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Buzzy restaurants
Venice is full of amazing restaurants, be sure to eat rather early as the restaurants close as the staff tend to live off venice in mestre. you wont get dinner after 9.30. There is a list in the appartment and I can send a list. The restaurants tend to change quite quickly and some are only seasonal. The best places are to be found down the most unexpected little allys and generally not in the main tourist areas. These often tend to be poor quality and very overpriced. A coffee in st marks square can be up to 15-20 euros.
Cool bars
Venice has some lovely traditional bars and many, as with the restaurants are found in unexpected palces. There is of course the very famous Harrys bar which is a must whilst visiting Venice, and we would reccomend the roof top bar in the Hilton Stukey which is situated at the end of Giudecca Island. the veiws are amazing particularly on a clear night or in a lightening storm. Veiws of Venice from there are wonderful. Venice tends to shut down quite early in the evening as most of the workers tend to live outside of Venice. there are very few late opening bars.
Cozy cafés
dotted all over, but there are 2 just a minutes walk from the apartment which are frequented by the locals and are very friendly, helpful and very chilled. Sit and watch the world go by.
Retail therapy
Venice is stuffed full of all of the most wonderful designer shops. Even if you are not buying it is well worth a wander to the fabulous windows.
Bit of culture
Where do we start, through out the year venice has carnivals, art and culture expos etc etc. always check your dates and i can check the calender to see what is going on.
Spot of exercise
You will walk and walk and walk through the lanes and allys of venice all day!! getting lost is all the fun of the wandering.
Day tripping
Murano, Burano, and Torcello are the top three islands to visit on day trips from Venice. Murano is known as the island of ​glass-makers, Burano has canals lined with picturesque colored houses and is known for lace making, and Torcello is a green island where you can see Byzantine mosaics in the 7th-century Cathedral.Venice Lido is a long strip of land off the Venice coast. The Lido is lined with beaches and is a good place for nightlife, shopping or to get away from the tourist crowds in Piazza San Marco. In early September, the Venice Film Festival is held on the Lido. There are shops, restaurants, bars, and hotels (often less expensive than in Venice) on Venice Lido, as well. Also Verona, sometimes called the Florence of the North, is famous for the house and balcony said to belong to Juliet in the Shakespeare story, "Romeo and Juliet." Verona has a 2,000-year-old Roman Arena where summer opera performances are held, a Roman bridge and a market square that was once the Roman Forum. Verona is one of Italy's most visited cities. I could go on and on, and happy to give you more information if you are going to the apartment.
