  • Hi Kelsey!
    I am planning a trip to Italy this year in October. Venice and Tuscany are definitely on our list of places to visit. Where would you suggest staying in Venice, and what types of site seeings are a must?

    • Hi Kate! You picked two amazing areas to visit on your trip! For places to stay in Venice – I’d recommend looking at Airbnb. There are some pretty great options (I stayed here and it was worth the price! The views were AMAZING. So many good pics: There are definitely more affordable options though but Airbnbs will put you right in the city for less than a hotel. For sites to see, definitely visit the Piazza San Marco – I especially like it around sunset. And if you like panoramic views, head up the San Marco Campanile (bell tower). The 360-view is the best! The Bridge of Sighs is over in this area, as well and the Doges palace. Definitely, hit up the Rialto Bridge. It was under construction when I was there but it’s pretty famous so worth stopping by. Gondola rides are pretty pricey – I honestly think that taking the water taxis is equivalent and much cheaper but I’m sure people would disagree. Ultimately in Venice though, I recommend just wandering! There are so many twists and turns throughout the city that you’ll always stumble upon something to see.

      If you want to do a day trip (I really think one or two days is enough for Venice), Murano and Burano are both accessible by ferry and are beautiful! Hope that helps 🙂
