What can I do in 2 days?


Venice is small but for dense: there's many museum, exhibition, churches, osterie for you to enjoy. Two days can be good enough only if you plan it thoroughly. Here we try and help you on that delicate matter: keep reading and you'll find a suggestion on how to make your time in town worthy. We selected the places that we think you shouldn't miss, especially if it's your first time here and hopefully you'll appreciate the city even more.

Booking our Family Suite for a 2 nights stay, you'll be welcomed with a bottle of Prosecco and the classic cicchetti, all served in the salon facing the Grand Canal.

The first afternoon you have in town, you should spend it walking our district of Canareggio, immersing yourself in one of the most authentic area in Venice. We've prepared a nice walk in the maze, discovering the main attractions. The highlights will be Ponte Chido, the famous Squero dei Muti, the Madonna dell'Orto church and the Jewish Ghetto. This stroll will take you a couple of hours, or a little more stopping here and there.
After dinner you can have the first look at Saint Mark's square, in one of the most suggestive (and quiet!) moments. You can come back on foot but it's also worthy to come back on the Vaporetto (water bus): I'll have the experience of the Gran Canal at night and that's priceless.

San Marco and much more!

The morning after you can start your day by using a gondola to cross the Grand Canal and reach the other side. On the Santa Sofia square, you can take this “special” gondola called Traghetto and experience something that locals do every day, in a very unique situation. If it's not Sunday or Monday, you'll arrive right in the center of the famous market, where fishes of all sorts, flowers, vegetable and fruit will welcome you in a very colorful and lively way. Right after, you can walk into the center of the island and reach the incredible Chiesa dei Frari. Well know all over the world for its important painting Assunta by Tiziano, this church s one of the most iconic example of the Venetian Gothic style developed in the Middle Ages. After the visit, walk back to bridge of Rialto, cross it and reach Saint Mark's square to enter the Basilica and the Dogi's Palace. This two astonishing attractions are unmissable, visiting them both will take you at least 3 hours but i's worth the price and time.

During the evening, if you haven't already planned a dinner, you can discover the osterie and bacari of Cannaregio: we've prepared for you a foodelicious tour, making sure you don't miss out on good food and wine!
The area will surely offer something you'll love.
In the morning, if you got time before the departure, you can easily walk from our Locanda to the Accademia bridge, to expand your picture of Venice to new areas. Once you've cross it, you can walk until you find the Punta della Dogana, where the custom originally was. From there you an really have a view on Venice, with Saint Mark's square on one side, the Giudecca Island on the other, the Gran Canal with it's majesty opening up and the whole profile of the city. If your searching for the perfect picture to bring home, you'll certainly find it there!
