Love this city gives the opportunity to please each other romance. Someone seems to be riding on a gondola kitsch and bad taste on horseback. Do not be hypocrites, since there is a chance to see the city from the water, sit together, embracing, sipping champagne and listening to Italian songs that softly humming gondolier. Venice only gives such pleasure. And can ride along the Grand Canal, but on a boat. You will discover the entire city center, which is not visible when you swam to the island from the mainland. And if you are in town for one day, you are unlikely to get around it all, despite the fact that he was tiny.
In Venice, easy to get lost, but wherever you go, you always go out to the waterfront. The narrow streets are often lured tourists storefronts, and there is easy to keep up with the group. So it makes sense to come to town on your own, if you want to stay here for a few days. And if you come to a group, take time for a walk without a guide. Remember all does not work, but you look exactly the places you want. You can never go on the pier and the Doge's Palace and still feel the city.
But the overall mood of romantic city should not deprive you of vigilance. Since there can be several thousand daily visitors, the entire budget of the city is on them. The city is very expensive cafe. Before ordering, read the menu. If you just want a snack, drinking a cup of coffee and a bun, place your order at the bar. Otherwise, your order will include the cost of service. Do not carry backpacks, they were not allowed into the churches, and they attract petty thieves.
