Enjoy Walking Around

Fewer visitors are in the city and strolling aimlessly is an unparalleled pleasure. In addition to the many landmarks, Venice is a city that has to be discovered in the small details and this can be done by walking around. From the Piazza to the smallest , please feel like at home.It is fun, especially with kids, to put your map aside and follow your instinct in the narrow calli. It will be serendipity.

From the water, it’s lovely to take line 1 or 2 of vaporetto along the Grand Canal. Take the older boats that have seats in the front: the 45-minute cruise is worth the price.

It needs to be underlined how much the cooler weather of this month is a relief, after the mugginess of the summer. As you can see from the chart, temperatures are in the 20s°C (70s°F) and most days are sunny.
