If you haven’t added Venice to your travel wishlist, it’s time to make a change.  Here, you will find advice, suggestions, and places to visit from my day trips in Venice, Italy. It’s a truly unique destination, offering a magical experience with its canals, historic architecture, and delicious food. Having recently visited from my home base in Parma, Italy, I can attest that Venice is a must-see.

Here’s a rundown of what you can expect:

How do I get there?

Getting to Venice is convenient for those of us who live in Italy, especially by train. The journey is picturesque and adds to the overall experience. Once you arrive, walking is the best way to explore the city.

Venice is pedestrian-friendly, and many attractions are within a reasonable distance. If needed, vaporettos (water buses) are available for longer trips along the Grand Canal.

What to See and Do on a Day Trip on Venice

St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco): The heart of Venice, surrounded by historic buildings and cafes.

Rialto Bridge: A must-visit landmark with stunning views of the Grand Canal. I forgot to take a picture of this bridge, but these two photos were taken from it.

Canal Grande: Take a cool ride along the big Canal. You can use a boat bus or go for the classic gondola ride.

Day Trips from Venice

Consider a day trip to nearby islands or towns like Burano, Murano, or Padua. These excursions offer a different perspective and enrich your overall experience. I visited Padua, a very nice city very close to Venice.

It has a lot of cool history, culture, and a mix of both old and new vibes. You’ll enjoy the fancy buildings and the friendliness of everyone.

Where to Stay After a Day Trip in Venice

For accommodations, I recommend looking into Airbnb. It often provides excellent value for money, and you can find places in the heart of the city. I stayed in Private double room in Venice Rialto during my visit, and it was fantastic.

It was €70 per night, and you could reach all the important points of the city on foot.

Where to Eat

In Venice, there’s amazing food waiting for you! Try cicchetti, which is like Venetian tapas, at local spots called bacari. Just walk around, and if you see a place full of people and locals, go in—it’s probably a tasty find.

For breakfast, grab some pastries, fruit, and coffee from local bakeries or markets. It’s a quick and easy way to get fueled up for a day of exploring.

If you want a good and filling lunch, check out Trattorias. Many of them have a budget-friendly option at around 13 Euros, and it includes three courses, as the Italians say, ‘Il primo, secondo, e il dolce. And trust me, you’ll feel full all afternoon.

Venice is a city like no other, and I hope this guide adds to your experience. This was all about that day trips from Venice, Italy. Enjoy your trip!
