You’ve been asking…

How can I save money on meals while in Venice?

Avoid tourist traps; the most popular places tend to have the highest prices. Budget meals are available throughout the region, so you can have a quality, authentic meal in Venice for less than the cost of a movie ticket back home.

Plan your budget and prepare envelopes with the money needed for each day. If you find yourself about to exceed your budget for the day, visit one of the many small stores that sell sandwiches and other small food items. You can eat well in Italy without having to spend a great deal of money if you avoid the high-priced restaurants and enjoy only one expensive meal per day.

Insider Tip: Contrary to what you might expect, even the basic house wine can get pretty costly in Italy, so you might want to limit how much you try.

Why I love Venetian Riviera

While watching the Grand Canal in Venice from Palazzo Flangini to Campo San Marcuola, I knew Venice would change my life.

I could explore the entire Venetian coastline and never find all the best-kept secrets and hidden streets that make it so special. I enjoyed getting away from the sea of tourists and exploring the vast offerings available on the coastline. Many travelers find themselves sticking to the most famous haunts and never really get out and explore the city. If you want a real taste of Italy, you need to do what I did by getting out and exploring.

The Italians have an overwhelming kindness to tourists. At one point, I was served an amazing meal by an independent restaurant owner. When the meal was over, we talked, and he gave me some pointers about the best way to see and experience Italy while avoiding some of the more expensive places around the coast.

Things worth remembering in Venetian Riviera

Fun Fact: Venice doesn’t have any historical records that detail the founding of the city. The original founders may very well have been refugees that came from the Roman Empire.

Local Dish: When in the area, seek out a fried delicacy known as Moleche: small, green soft-shell crabs that live in the lagoons in the Venetian coastal area.

Local Day Trips: When you’re ready for something besides Venetian beaches, rent a bicycle and travel along the many paths available on the coast. You can rent a bicycle from any of the numerous merchants, get a map and view small traditional villages hidden amidst corn fields, fruit and olive trees along the lagoons.

You’ve been asking…

What is the local bus schedule like in Venice, Italy?

Public transport in Venice provides routes that take you along the coastline and countryside. Save some money on tickets by purchasing them online in advance. If you plan on mixing up bicycling and the bus, aim to schedule these events on different days. This way, you can take use the bus to get around town and visit more remote locations while using the bicycle for a local day trip.

In addition to bus passes, you can also purchase passes to see the various museums and historical sights. Purchasing many of your tickets in advance lets you avoid paying full price for admission at the door.

Insider Tip: Paying for each individual bus is possible, but it’s better to buy an all-day pass and plan your days accordingly.
