This is our first time in Venice
We will be arriving by train at 2:30 in the afternoon on a Wednesday. We will probably walk to Santa Croce area (staying at Hotel Al Duca) and leave on Friday morning. This is a second honeymoon and we want it to be special. I am not sure what time the churches and museums close, so I do not know what to plan for the first day. Any suggestions?
Our only plan for this day is to find a gondola ride with serenade, I have no idea how to plan this, the one I found with dinner was too expensive.
I was not sure if the Basilica Dei Frari might fit in this day from where we are?
We will really only have a day and a half, and I am not sure if the city pass with vaporetto 36 hour, is our best option. At some point, we will ride the #1 Tra. to just get an overview of everything.
Early on second day we will start with going to Rialto Bridge area, then the San Marco area with the Basilica of San Marco, Doge's Palace, and other things suggested in this forum for Venice in one day.
Thanks in advance for any help.
