Everyone has different interests as to what to see and do, a good idea is to get D&K's Venice Top Ten, this lists the top Ten of everything imaginable so you can choose bewfore hand what appeals to you,

Depends on how much time you have in Venice - in the Search box you can type in 1 day, 1.5 days or 2 days and get some good itineraries.

Amost everthing in Venice is a must see. Just get out and explore. Don't forget a waterbus on the Grand Canal. All the beautiful buildings lining the canal. Also watch for the Rialto bridge as it comes into view as you round the bend. Truly spectacular.

you have received wise advice. Get a good guidebook (or two). Select based upon your personal interests. Once you've identified your "suspects", the forum can certainly offer more impressions, tips, details, pros and cons etc.

No one is more qualified to map out your vacation than yourself.

Best regards,

I had very limited time in Venice when I visited last month. So, the only must-see was St Mark's Square. The basilica (make a reservation!) and the dueling orchestras. It was wonderful.

All the other times (1.5 days), I wondered around and saw the Fenice, walked from sea to sea, got lost, visited some wonderful shop (walk "behind" St Mark's Square), saw the dueling churches (my word) of hospital and church (Giovanna e Paolo, I belive?) and ride the Grand Canal a few times.

If you have more time, (and I wish I did it), visit the gardens and go up the belltowers (any which one).
