Venice in a day..
Venice is definitely somewhere worth visiting for the sheer spectacle that is the floating city. We were slightly underwhelmed by some areas of the city as many buildings were covered by scaffold or were run down. We would recommend that you wouldn't need more than a day or two to see the sights in Venice.
Insider Tip:Getting lost in the maze of streets is an inevitability, we'd definitely recommend buying a good street map and planning your route. Also, if you have a tight budget, don't bet you'll be able to find a bargin gondola ride as you'll be in for a shock, from at least €150 for an hour tour. If you insist it's worth it, at least make a little money back by not buying tickets for the buses, as you can definitely get away without paying for a ticket! Do be careful when travelling outside the city on the mainland
