Venice Off The Beaten Path: 717 reviews and 1,246 photos

Venice is one of the more intriguing places, if not the most I've ever visited. Having been there 3 times now I've found out that the true hiden beauty of the city isn't always those popular sights like Saint Marks Square. This place is so interesting that if you allow yourself to just simply wonder down the streets and over bridges you will most definitely discover a whole new Venice most tourist are unaware of. Yes, you can get lost, but Venice is an Island and pretty easy to negoiate if you have to pull out that map. With a suprise around everycorner I would suggest that the newcomer take the first day of their trip and do the tourist thing by visiting all the well known landmarks. Then put on your walking shoes and just explore for the remaining days. You'll most definitely find your favorite restaurant, shop, view,etc. this way!

Have fun!
