Hey there. It’s been two fabulous days in Venice so far and we’ve been having a fantastic time. Venice is very lay back, casual – with friendly folks everywhere with the language not really presenting any issues. From the airport you can take a passenger ferry to City Centre for a very reasonable fare. If you are super rich, you can book a private taxi but obviously thats not us 🙂
We spent time on Day 1 walking the tiny alleys, exploring St. Mark’s Square, and getting used to the Venetian way of life. Awesome pizza, cheap wine, well-dressed locals to name few. It is cool being in an environment with no cars. Prices are very reasonable for food and transportation so far.
