How to visit Venice in only one day

"Memory's images, once they are fixed in words, are erased," Polo said. "Perhaps I am afraid of losing Venice all at once, if I speak of it, or perhaps, speaking of other cities, I have already lost it, little by little."

- Italo Calvino, Invisible cities

Here is how you can visit Venice in only one day.

This excludes the tourist tours and the church tickets and so on. But in one day, you can see the most important points of Venice without rushing and actually enjoying the moment.

Gondola

It's every woman's dream to go on a romantic Gondola ride in the heart of Venice, enjoying the breath-taking views as you go past the Rialto Bridge.

These rides are not cheap, the cost of a 25 minute ride is 80 Euro during the day and 100 Euro during the night.

My suggestion is take Gondola rides in the mornings because it's less crowded.

Each Gondola is unique and a work of art.

Rialto Bridge

It's the heart of Venice

It's a historical beauty. Perfect place to take gondolas and covered with restaurants.

Take a moment and enjoy the view.

Food

Italy is known for their delicious food, especially pizza and pasta.

I'm sorry to tell you but you have not picked the right italian city to have this experience. Go to Milano instead, their food is heaven on heart.

Venice pizza in not that great, I would go for pasta or rice instead.

Fun fact, you will see Sprintz Aperol at every corner, so if you haven't tried it now is the moment!

Also this delicious looking Ice Cream is Vegan and the local is called Gelatoteca Suso.

Bridge of Sigh

Build in 16th century.

It is said, it's where prisoners would get their last glimpse of Venice before getting to their prison cells.

Libraria Aqua Alta Venice

A different kind of art, at a library.

Don't be afraid to get lost in the small corners of Venice.

Venice is a mistery to be discovered by being lost.

Walk around until your feet hurt.

Go explore.

Life is an adventure.

"Sure, the Leaning Tower of Pisa leaned like everyone else said it would, the mountains of Tibet were more beautiful than you had ever expected, and the Pyramids of Egypt stood mysteriously in the sea of sand like in the pictures; yet is it the environment or rather the openness in mindset, that makes up the elusive essence of happiness that we experience when we travel" - Cassandra Clare, City of Lost Souls

Walking around Milano as a Vegan

"A complicated structure? Undoubtedly. But after all, the cathedral of Milan is complicated too, and you still look at it with awe." - Kato Lomb
