During your Venice day trips, get a taste of Venice culture by trying a little bit of everything the city has to offer.

Get your body moving on a walking tour, exploring Venice’s fascinating history or admire beautiful Renaissance art at the San Rocco. As the night winds down, escape from the heat in a local bar, sipping from a variety of wine, spritz, and grappa

Stop for a scoop of gelato after you visit San Marco Plaza, home to the famous landmarks of St. Peter’s Basilica, Doge’s Palace, and Torre dell’Orlogico. Watch a ballet or opera performance at La Fenice or relax at a waterside bar

Italy has world-renowned food. While there, try amazing and sweet Frittole and fried Galani. Sample the Italian delight dish of cuttlefish and another of tasty Tramezzini. Savor Spritz made with wine and Bellini made with Prosecco

“Hello” and “Goodbye” in Italian are both “Ciao” and “How are you?” is “Come sta?” To ask someone if they speak English, ask “Parla Inglese?”. “Grazie” means “Please”, “Per favore” means “Please”, and “Prego” means “You’re welcome”. “Scuzi” means “Excuse me” or “Pardon”

Summers are hot and sticky, with temperatures skyrocketing to the 70s and 80s with high humidity. Fall is chilly, hovering around 50 degrees. Winters are cold, with temperatures averaging in the lows 30s. Spring temperatures range from the 40s to the 60s, with light rain
