Italy: Get lost in Venice

It's no secret that Venice is one of Italy's most beautiful yet expensive cities, but fortunately one of the best things to do in the city is wandering its streets and alleys aimlessly to soak up the atmosphere and find the charming and empty squares. If doing Venice on a budget is on your list, forget the pricey gondola rides. Instead opt for the vaporetti (water buses) which will take you along the main canals, to the islands and around the lagoon, visit St Mark's Square when it's empty (early morning or late at night) and see if you can spot some city gems, like the market boats selling vegetables and fish to the few residents of Venice and the remaining gondola workshops where the men work on the boats in the sun.

Thanks to Ms Edo.
