    We were already in the area so decided to go again the the liberia Acqua alta. As it had been the first time we visited, it was packed with tourists and we were delighted to see there were even more 'attractions'. A basket of very cheap (what seemed to be) recycled books as well as the calendars and postcards plus a good selection of new books. We were also delighted to see one of the cats sitting majestically by the till and he/she even allowed me to give it a little lickle on the cheek. Delighted again to be in the place!

    This is among lesser-visited museums in Venice, with several expositions including a pretty good art collection, across a number of interesting spaces.

    Although less exuberant than Scuola Grande San Rocco, San Giovanni Evangelista has more defined spaces and is well worth checking out.

    Many large Tintoretto paintings on two floors of an ancient scuola or headquarters of a confraternity in Venice. Rather dark but rented a audioguide for $5 that was informative.

    I’ve dreamt about visiting this masterpiece by Sansovino ever since I was an A Level student... We spent ages looking for the entrance and even asked a number of locals, policemen etc. Eventually we discovered that the Biblioteca Marciana, the Museo Archeologico and the Museo Correr all share the same entrance at the western end of Piazza San Marco. That’s a nuisance if you’ve bought the multi-museum ticket and haven’t got time to visit three museums all at once, because it doesn’t allow multiple entries!
    Sadly we were unable to enjoy the grandeur of the interior since there was a major exhibition on in the Biblioteca, which ‘got in the way’. The other two museums were full of fascinating exhibits and are well worth a visit, but only if you’ve got plenty of time.

    The Monumental Halls of the Library illustrate the beauty of the ancient Library of St. Mark, made largely by Jacopo Sansovino and completed by Vincenzo Scamozzi, with an extraordinary staircase and a very rich decoration.

    Fantastic bookstore in a wonderful area. They've got a well-curated, thoughtful selection. Bonus was a small English section, largely tailored toward social change and Venice info. So glad we popped by!

    Located next to the Saint Maria dei Frari (church) in Campo San Frari this is another Venice freebie. A beautiful courtyard is accessible. The area of San Polo is quiet and off the main tourist path so it is generally quieter and more relaxed. Access into the small museum was free so another bonus to those visiting Venice on a budget.

    Carlo Osvaldo Goldoni was an Italian playwright from Venice (February 1707 – February 6, 1793). His works include some of Italy's most famous and best-loved plays. Audiences have admired the plays of Goldoni for their ingenious mix of wit and honesty. His plays offered his contemporaries images of themselves, often dramatizing the lives, values, and conflicts of the emerging middle class.

    The museum is where he was born and celebrates his work as an artist. The house was built in the 15th century and tucked in a Venice alley/street. The family remained there until 1719.

    The collection is famous for its manuscripts, puppets, and masks. When I visited, I was the only one there in the house other than personnel.

    I stopped here for some maps and information brochures of what was going on in Venice during my stay, but I was disappointed. They have almost nothing, and the only visible map of the city is not handed out for free - you have to pay for it.
    Also other brochures were with general info were missing. They just focus on selling the inclusive Venice cards here.
    However, if you ask questions to the staff, they will gladly answer, with all details.

    The Historical Archive of the Patriarchate of Venice is one of the most important places for the study of Christianity in the lagoon city.
