Venice is a city that's definitely best discovered on foot but unless you have some sort of supernatural sense of direction, chances are you'll get lost at least once during your trip. However, this could be the very best thing that could happen to you as we got to discover some absolutely charming streets that way! It also helps to remember that you're on an island and can't get lost very far. However, one thing that did help us not getting lost was the very detailed free city map we received when we checked in at our hotel - it was much better than the one printed in my guide and I'm guessing every hotel in Venice has them. Another thing that was pretty useful were the big yellow signs you find all over the city pointing out directions for the San Marco and Rialto areas. Since these two locations are fairly central, it becomes easy to figure out your way from there. So put on those walking shoes and start exploring this fantastic city!
