A lot to explore in Venice
it's easy to enjoy Venice if you love circling the old, beautiful buildings on the water again and again. I got a 48-hour boat pass and just took the boat everywhere, including all the way out to Lido. Palazzo Ducale and Basilica San Marco are both worth touring. The mosaic work is simply breathtaking.
Insider Tip:Try to lose the crowd when you are done touring the major cites. Go to Dorsoduro on the other side of the canal and explore the campos where Venetians go. Buy some fruit from a traveling boat grocer. Watch kids play soccer after school outside an ancient church. Il Doge at Campo S. Margherita has the best gelato - without any flashing neon signs!
