"Try to get lost in Venice. It..." Italy Favorite Tip by lengyelp

Italy General: 753 reviews and 735 photos

Favorite thing: Try to get lost in Venice. It is difficult if you are looking for the more important landmarks, because everywhere there are arrows showing the way to Piazza San Marco, or the Rialto. (Though you may be puzzled when you find two arrows pointing in the opposite direction, both with the sign 'Pza. San Marco'. Well, you know, all roads lead to Rome or S. Marco)
But it is better to put away the map and enter the labyrinth of the little streets of Venice. Every time you see an arrow, turn in the opposite direction, and soon you will not see the tourists and you can start enjoying the Venetian atmosphere. You may feel yourself in the Middle Ages sometimes...
