Venice local guide, Private tours in Venice and the Veneto
  • FIRST TIME IN VENICE WHAT TO EXPECT AND HOW TO WALK IN VENICE

    When you come in Venice the first time you don’t know exactly what you’re going to find here, how many people will be around you? what’s the size of this unique pedestrian city? how can you move around? maybe your forecast to be in this silent situation:

    Venice Ghetto

    or maybe you dream to have this Venice in front of you:

    Wine along the Grand Canal

    but the reality often looks more as this:

    Santa Maria Formosa's Square

    a lovely city with other people sharing its unique beauty. Unless of course you really want to do an Off the beaten walk, or you’re seeking for lovely empty corners precisley.

     

    WALKING THE CITY SOLUTIONS TO ENJOY YOUR STAYING

    So how to walk in Venice and enjoy the city by avoiding to be stuck on a little alley? These are the solutions:

    • walk on the right side of the streets,
    • don’t block bridges to make pictures, they are often bottle necks,
    • if you walk at slowly pace try to walk on a single line

    To sum up try to walk like you’re driving a car by taking into account that other people maybe locals going to work, school, are living your same space. In this way you will be recognized as a respectful traveller attracting the warm smile of the local people you’re going to encounter.
