We cover activities you won't find in a typical Venice tourism brochure, Venice itinerary or Venice, Italy city tour also known as Venezia Italia. 20 Things to do in Venice, Italy Travel Guide Video Transcript: (VENEZIA ITALIA): We’re taking you on a whirlwind tour of Venice in winter visiting the famed Floating City. Join us as we show you the best things to see, do and eat in Venice. The Vaporetto is Venice’s water bus service. The standard ticket is 7.50 Euros and valid for 60 minutes, the 1 day pass is 20 Euros and valid for 24 hours. The most visited attraction in Venice: Piazza San Marco where there is quite a bit to see and do around the square beginning with St Mark’s Basilica. St Mark’s Campanile, a tall brick bell tower was once used by approaching ships as a beacon to guide them home where you get great views of the city. Then you have the Doge’s Palace, which was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the ruler of the former Republic of Venice built in the Venetian Gothic style. Don't forget the Bridge of SIghs, whose name refers to the sighs of prisoners who would get their last glimpse of Venice as they were led from Doge's Palace to their cells. Across to the other side of the Grand Canal, you have the Basilica of Saint Mary of Health and the Galleria dell’Accademia in case you’re in the mood for art. A restaurant we really enjoyed La Zucca - a place where all the dishes are made with pumpkin! The Rialto Market specializes in produce and fresh seafood for self-catering. Let’s talk about island hopping in Venice: Founded in the 5th century, Torcello is even older than Venice and was the original settlement in the Venetian Lagoon with lots of walking paths, nature and Byzantine mosaics. Burano is known for its lace work and brightly coloured homes with plenty of restaurants, cafes and shops to browse. Mazzorbo island sits next to Burano and is connected by a bridge while being known for its vineyards and orchards. Murano is renowned for its glass production dating back to 1291 when the glassmakers in Venice were forced to relocate by the Venetian government. Lido is an 11-kilometre sandbar island that shelters the lagoon from the Adriatic Sea with beaches, lots of seaside homes, and this is also where the Venice Film Festival takes place. A restaurant we liked in Venice is Osteria Mocenigo specializing in local cuisine. Try the “Sarde in saor” - a typical Venetian dish made with sardines. While your vaporetto pass is valid ride the canals at night and watch the Floating City come to life. We hope you enjoyed this Venice travel guide and that it gave you a few ideas for your own trip.

Rick Steves' Europe Travel Guide | In the shadow of Venice, we visit three great cities in the Veneto area. Padova is famed for its venerable university, precious Giotto frescoes, and pilgrim-packed basilica. Verona is a hit with aficionados of Roman ruins and Romeo and Juliet fans. And Ravenna, with its shimmering mosaics, was once the western bastion of the Byzantine Empire. We enliven each stop with a tasty dose of Italian "dolce vita."

Start at the bottom and work your way up. You'll see all the Romeo and Juliet sites, including where they lived and where they got married, along with the best views in Verona and amazing churches and piazzas.

As you can see at the end of the video, we had time to spare. So if you want to go up the Torre dei Lamberti or go into the Arena, you can. Just make sure you watch your times, since ALL THE CHURCHES CLOSE AT 5pm, with a siesta break from 1-1:30.
You can easily see the entire city in one day. We started at the bottom (San Zeno and Castelvecchio) and zig-zagged our way up to the top, ending at the viewpoint (at Piazzale Castel San Pietro) for sunset. A little better planning would reduce the amount of walking we did (we covered more than 30,000 steps), but the town is so small that you can get across the entire thing in about 15 minutes.
Here is a list of everything we saw and the corresponding timestamps:
0:27 - Basilica San Zeno (where Romeo and Juliet got married)
3:01 - Castelvecchio
3:20 - Castelvecchio Bridge (aka Ponte Scaligero) - medieval bridge with the world's largest arch (at the time it was built)
3:49 - Piazza Bra
4:01 - Arena di Verona (it opens late on Mondays - at 1:30pm, every other day is 8:30am-7:30pm)
4:22 - Via Mazzini
4:39 - Porta Borsari
5:01 - Arco dei Gavi
5:12 - Lunch at Baccha Bundus (fantastic piadinas)
5:24 - Piazza della Erbe
5:29 - Piazza della Ragione
5:32 - Torre dei Lamberti
5:40 (and 12:00) - Casa di Giulietta (Juliet's House)
6:01 - Porta Leoni
6:10 - San Fermo (upper church)
6:51 - San Fermo (lower church)
7:28 - Casa di Romeo
7:36 - Sant'Anastasia
8:27 - Duomo di Verona (Verona Cathedral
9:10 - St. Elena
9:21 - The baptistry (St Giovanni in Fonte)
9:43 - Scaliger Tombs (Tombs of the della Scala family)
9:53 - Santa Maria Antica
10:02 and 10:38 - Ponte Pietra
10:41 - Piazzale Castel San Pietro (Best view in Verona)
10:54 - Dante's statue in Piazza dei Signori
