We visited Venice in August and the weather was perfect. Let me guide you on our 2 nights, 3 days itinerary in Venice, Murano and Burano Islands.


Parking in Venice
Cars are not allowed in Venice Centre so we parked our car at Venezia Tronchetto Indoor private parking near the ferry station.

Spritz in Venice

Never leave Venice without trying their local Spritz. It's a combination of Prosseco wine and Aperol. One of the best suggested places as per tripadvisor was Osteria Al Squero. Everything was delicious and cheap.
