    The best way to explore Venice is to walk and walk and walk ... and get lost. It's never for very long or very far and you stumble across the best gems. Other than that, just get off the main tourist thoroughfare from the station to St. Marks square as fast as possible! over 6 years ago

    Definitely walking around is fab, and i used to like the water bus too as you could go to the other islands such as Murrano or Burrano.

    I liked the behind the scenes tour of the Doges Palace, the Bascillica is amazing and just hanging around and watching people is brilliant too.

    Every alleyway has something fascinating down it - stunning architecture or stumbling across a brilliant mask maker.

    Venice really is a wonderful place to be, but I prefer it out of season so as to try and avoid some of the crowds. over 6 years ago

    Venice is great and should not be too crowded at end of Nov. The cit is small, so really anywhere is a good place tonexplore from.

    I agree, walk, walk, and walk! I am not sure if I could find anything other than the most obvious places even with directions! As you wander though the town, stop at shops, cafes, and mini museums.

    I wandered into a Salvador Dali museum somewhere in Venice...loved it!

    And definitely take a boat to Burrano...if nothing else for the gorgeous colored buildings! over 6 years ago
