Alongside our Ayo information and travel guide here are some additional Ayo recommendations for your visit to Venice.
The Ayo recommended time to visit Venice is in April and May or September to November or if you’re interested in a more unique visit, have a look when the Venetian carnival is on the year of your visit.
It is also Ayo recommended to walk around Venice to get around. When walking around you can explore the city to its fullest. Due to the winding and maze-like nature of the paths throughout the city, Google Maps is not very accurate, and it is quite easy to get lost. It is Ayo recommended to look for signs on the side of the buildings or ask for a map and directions at a hotel reception before heading off.
If you decide to take a Vaporetto trip, there are tickets available directly at the stops. For parking during your Venice stay, it is Ayo recommended to either use the Tronchetto or Mestre garages, as they offer the best value for money.
There is precisely one beach area in Venice and that’s the Lido di Venezia. The beach is not a typical Venetian feature but if you really want that element included in your holiday then the Lido is the place to be. A wonderful part of this Northern Italian city is the are called Il Ghetto.
The pigeons shouldn’t be fed. This is not a punishable act, but it is not appreciated by the locals. Much like eating a packed lunch in public. This should definitely be avoided. An Ayo recommended place to eat is the area around the Rialto bridge. Another great bridge to see in Venice is the bridge of sighs and the Ayo recommended photo spot is the Ponte della Paglia.
Last but certainly not least, we Ayo recommend requesting a gondola ride along the smaller canals and not the Canal Grande.
