Prices for tours to Venice
Travel managers advise visiting Venice from late April to early October. When planning a trip to this romantic Italian city, it is worth keeping in mind that in the summer months the prices for tours to Venice jump up almost 2 times. The same applies to the period when the Venice Carnival takes place in the city. To save money, you can come here in November-February, but it is important to know that at this time the city is often "attacked" by wind and rain.
On a note!
On summer holidays, it is advisable to take light things, sunglasses and cream with you, and on winter holidays - warm, non-ventilated things. It is convenient to travel around the city on foot, and along the canals - on a small boat or gondola.
It should be borne in mind that many shops and government offices are closed during lunch hours..
If you want to feed pigeons while walking in Piazza San Marco, purchase special food for this purpose..
If the service charge in cafes and restaurants is not included in the bill, it is advisable for the waiter to leave a tip (5-10% of the total amount).
Venetian masks, carnival costumes, Buran laces, leather and Murano glass products, figurines in the form of a gondola with a gondolier, olive oil, cheese, wine can be used as memorable gifts from Venice..
