Hello. I have just started building my itinerary for Venice. My fiancé & I arrive on October 14, at 12noon & leave on October 19, approximately 11am. We are not early risers (on holidays), like a leisurely breakfast and generally will not rush through activities, if we can help it. Please excuse the fact that the itinerary sounds amateurish, since I’ve just started planning...
Arrive at the hotel by 2pm. It’s a toss up between American Dinesen in Dorsoduro & Ala in San Marco. On this day, we shall take it easy after a looonnnggg journey... maybe take a trip (vaperato?) along the Grand Canal. And as advised, ‘get lost’ in Venice... Ummm, what direction shall we get lost in? : )
San Marco. Secret Itineraries Tour + Doge’s Palace. The Basilica. What else in this area should we do?
Museums. Accademia & Peggy Guggenheim. I believe these are in close proximity to each other. What are the other ‘must see’ museums?
Islands. Murano & Burano.
Rialto Bridge / Market. Churches. Frari & Scuola San Rocco. What are the other ‘must see’ churches?
Pick up a car from Piazzale Roma & drive to Tuscany.
As mentioned, this is the very early version of my itinerary. I look forward to hearing your opinions on the order of activities & suggestions for what else we should do. Once I have a basic plan in place, I shall research all the activities thoroughly. Thank you!
