Venice is known as an expensive city. With this post, we are happy to provide you with a short list of good and cheap places in Venice to eat well and drink even better, avoiding touristic traps!
Venice is an open air museum and it was hard to select the ten places you cannot miss in Venice, but we made our best for you!!;)
This list of 10 places to visit in Venice provides you with the best places to get the best experience possible from your trip to Venice.
1. Piazza San Marco and Basilica
Saint Mark Area is the very center of Venice history and power. From here, you can feel and understand the greatness of a city that has been a leading trade power back in the past.
In this area, you can’t miss a visit to the Basilica or to the bell tower. Try to avoid the expensive bar in the square in favour of a cheaper Bacaro in the streets nearby. Find out more here.

Moving from Piazza San Marco towards the Canal Grande you will see, on your left, Palazzo Ducale. Palazzo Ducale has been for centuries the political center of the Republic of Venice and, nowadays, it is a wonderful museum full of charm and history. If you can, take a guided tour to the hidden places of this great palace.

Venice is a city without cars, the last point you can reach driving is Piazzale Roma, crossing “Ponte della Libertà” (Freedom Bridge), where also trains and buses run.
Once in Piazzale Roma, or in Stazione Santa Lucia arriving by train, you get to choose how to move: on foot, “vaporetti” (small ferry boats) or taxi.
