ABOVE: Hauling luggage on a crowded vaporetto is no fun, and it can be expensive if you're traveling with more than one bag of reasonable size.
We've just published a new article at our main Venice for Visitors travel-planning site titled "Top 11 Tourist Mistakes in Venice, Italy (and how to avoid them)." The illustrated article discusses:
- Hit-and-run visits
- Staying in the wrong location
- Commuting from the mainland
- Following the crowd
- Paying too much for local and airport transportation
- Taking unnecessary tours
- Buying useless souvenirs
- Being careless with valuables
- Annoying the locals
- Not coming back
We don't just tell you what not to do: Where appropriate, we suggest alternatives. For example, on the page about overpacking, we explain why you'll be unhappy if you show up in Venice with heavy luggage, but we also describe where to store your bigger bags while taking only a small suitcase to your hotel.
