Some practical information for your visit to Venice and the Veneto:
Museum and churches
- Entrance to churches is permitted with shoulders covered and Bermuda shorts up to the knees.
- It is generally not permitted to enter museums or churches with large bags or backpacks. Museums have a free left-luggage service, for St Mark’s Basilca there is a paid left-luggage service in St Mark’s Square.
- Access to many Italian museums must be booked during the weekends, preferably online. During the week (Monday-Friday) tickets can be purchased directly from local ticket offices. I will provide you with the link to the official website of the museum and St Mark’s Basilica for booking and advice and information about how/when to do it.
Restaurants, high tide, transportation
- If you need some good tips of restaurants or hotels, write to me
- In autumn and winter the city can be flooded for a few hours by high water, don’t worry, if the MO.SE (dam) is not active, I will help you to organize your itineraries according to the altitude of Venice, and equipped routes on footbridges
- The pedestrian circulation in San Marco and the entrance to the church and museums may change when the tide is high
- Venice is a city where you can only walk or travel by boat
- I will try to organize your time in the best possible way.
Accessible Venice/Accessible itineraries
- Venice city is built on islands connected with 400 bridges. To organise better your visit and to be able to give you the best advice, please let me know in advance if you are using any wheelchair or agility scooter.
- Here is a list of accessible itineraries on the website of the Municipality of Venice (In Italian)
