Skip the pricey gondola rides, and cruise the canals on the Vaporetto! (€7.50)
LOOK AWAY from the gondolas!!! I know they’re pretty and probably at the top of many people’s Venice bucket lists, but they’re crazy expensive (anywhere from €80 to €200!😳), and you can cruise the canals on the local water taxi for only €7.50! It may not be as romantic, but it’s still a beautiful way to see the city.
Avoid expensive tourist traps, and head to Dal Moro’s Fresh Pasta To-Go (Under €10)
