So excited to be returning to Venice after a 14 year absence! We'll be there for 5 nights, 23 to 28 May, staying in an apartment in Dorsoduro (San Toma is nearest vaporetto stop). This itinerary is my attempt to just group things we could do each day we're there. I like to have lists of things we can do--even if we don't end up doing any or all of the things on a given day (we may get distracted by the cool cats and just lounge in the sun with them!). We love to wander and soak in the city but we also enjoy visiting churches, galleries, mansions filled with art, etc.
Friday--arrive from Tuscany, settle in, walk around, dinner
Monday--Doge's Palace Secret Itineraries tour; Correr Museum; Clock Tower; St. Mark's Basilica
Tuesday--Scuola San Rocco; Frari Church; Ca'Pesaro; Ca'D'Oro. Evening--Opera at La Fenice
Wednesday--depart at 1130am
Would like to fit San Giorgio Maggiore in too.
Thoughts? Suggestions, including places to dine out? We are celebrating a birthday while we're there so I was thinking of Antiche Carampe or Osteria Alle Testiere or Il Nuovo Galleon or ???
