Who hasn’t fallen in love with Venice, at least once in their life? The city that inspires titillates and amazes all and sundry, is a place you can holiday at anytime and every time. With its unfathomable magnetic pull, millions book their flight tickets for cheap to Venice and get set to have an adventure they aren’t likely to easily forget. If you too are up for romancing Venice or letting it romance you this holiday season (and have already booked flights to Venice at incredibly low fares) then read on to get some really handy travel tips!
When to Go
Venice is a city that can be enjoyed in pristine silence or amidst the most thunderous cacophony you have ever heard. If you need a casual, easy and free vibe to your stay, then book your cheap flights to Venice from October to March. December to March is the rainy season and the months of January and February are fiercely cold. But despite such climate too, tourists flock the city and can be found spilling out of piazzas.
If you have plans of being in the city of Venice during any of its famous festivals, then book your accommodation well in advance as getting decent lodging at that time can prove to be a difficult task.
What to Pack
Packing for Venice all depends on the month you choose. Raincoats and umbrellas will make your life easier during the rainy season and a light jacket is perfect during then. For severe winters, carry along warmer jackets and coats. Summers here can get really humid, so bring light and loose, preferably flowing garments (for women) for then.
Smart Travel tips
Since it is a well-established fact that Venice is perpetually teeming with visitors, you have to ensure that you act smart and make the most of your time. If visiting the city for a few days, then if you can help it, plan your trip for weekdays and not weekends. Also to enjoy the stunning sights and trips to basilica etc, beat the ‘visitor traffic’ by getting up early, well before breakfast, to be at these sights. To save on time you should try negotiating the city on foot; but if too tired then definitely make use of the water buses.
Deals and Discounts
Like any other city, Venice too doles out various deals and discount cards. You just have to ensure that you pick the one that suits your needs the best. The best way to get these cards is online. The different cards available here are Venice Connected, Museum Pass, VENICEcard and Museums of San Marco Pass.
For entry to museums, the EUR 18 Museum Pass will hold you in good stead as it provides entry to over 10 amazing city museums. But if you want to visit museums on the piazza, then the other museum card is what you will need.
