Shopping Venice
Venice has always been a busy retail centre, with an emphasis on luxury goods and a flair for the eccentric. The main retail areas are the Mercerie and the streets known collectively as the Frezzeria, which wind between campo San Fantin and piazza San Marco itself. The densest concentration of big-name fashion houses is in calle Larga XXII Marzo, just west of the piazza, where Gucci, Prada, Valentino, Fendi and Ferragamo huddle together. Calle della Mandola is the street for books and glass beads. 
For antiques, nose around campo Santo Stefano and San Marco. Look out for unique boutiques with imported or hand-crafted items between the Rialto and San Polo

Most visitors to Venice land at Marco Polo airport,   12 km from Venice . Many of them choose the heading straight from the
city, but walking around the backstreets is really what Venice is about. A few charter flights land in different areas of Venice,
but the majority are bound for Marco Polo.

Vaporetto (water bus) is most amazing method of getting around Venice; you won’t find too many public transport routes as unforgettable as vaporetto. No 1's trip along the Grand Canal . Get yourself a travel pass to ride the elusive vaopretto - single tickets don't come cheap, and are less economical if you plan to spend days travelling Venice and travelling every nook and cranny.

The classic gondola ride with the opera-warbling operator is pretty touristy and expensive but the traghetto is a commuter gondola that crosses the Grand Canal at strategic points. It's quite a balance test for newbies, as you have to stand. Water taxis (motorboats) are almost as expensive as gondolas, but their pilots don't wear stripy shirts and bellow out 'O Sole Mio'.
Shopping Venice
Regular buses (yes, they do exist) run from one place to another, but it's probably the least exciting way to get around the city. Obviously, don't bring the rental car to Venice - you'll just be paying to leave it in a car park for the duration, and in a few car parks you’ll find yourself with a large fine afterwards. Taxis - the regular four-wheeled variety - do operate from Piazzale Roma.
The famous water-villages of Venice post a threat to the historical buildings, which are slowly sinking into the marshy ground.
It is believed that if construction work does not continue, these buildings may, in turn, pose a threat to the safety of locals and
tourists. It has been said that “When this precious place sinks, the world will be the poorer”, and also stated that Venice has a
bleak future. Looking on the optimistic side, the villages are beautiful today, and are still open to being admired for years to
come.

And nobody can forget the romantic side of Venice . Although it can be excruciatingly hot and stuffy in summer, when the
tourists flock, it is nonetheless claimed to be one of the most romantic cities. With the image of an inky-blue sky laden in a full
moon and dotted with stars; above a glowing city-scape, seen from a tiled square bordered by Italian words and Pizza
outlets, it’s no wonder.

Like every tourist location, it’s not just tourists from the surrounding countries (countries, in this case, located in Europe), but 
all kinds of people can be found, cameras at the ready, in Venice . The attractions in Venice include many remarkable
structures; such as an impressive array of bronze work, tapestries and paintings from the 5 th to 6 th century, as well as a
whole handful of amazing buildings and galleries showcasing the artistic side of Venice.

If you are looking for the upbeat bars and restaurants, you cannot go wrong with the area surrounding Campo di Santa
Margarita in San Polo. There you will find an Irish pub, trendy bars that do the limbo and just plain fun. The area is frequented
by students from the University and is buzzing with life during the weekends as market stalls of fish and vegetables open up.

The sea surrounds Venice , and so, too, Venetian cuisine, which can be disappointing unless cuttlefish and sardines are what
you're after. You don't order pasta in Venice , you order lots of noodles with a dab of sauce.   Cichetti (chee-keht-tee) are
small portions of food served in bars all over the city, usually with an ombra, which is a small glass of wine. When you go out
for cichetti , you will eat standing up, hopefully in a crowded room. Mosey up to the bar, where all the cichetti will be
displayed before you. A typical cichetto (this is the singular) might be a square of mortadella on a toothpick, or a rice stuffed
tomato, or a ball of rice stuffed with an olive and deep fried. Summon the bar-person, order your glass of wine and point to
your choice of cichetti, which will then be served to you. The bar-person will keep your tab going and present it to you when
you are read

Venice Nightlife
The best stomping ground for music bars and late-night restaurants is along the fondamenta Misericordia in Cannaregio. The Iguana (041 713 561, closed Mon) serves Mexican food, has live music, friendly staff and stays open late. Cantina Vecia Carbonera (rio terà Maddalena, Cannaregio, 041 710 376) is a cool bacaro along the Strada Nuova. A hip new bar-restaurant, Centrale (piscina Frezzeria, San Marco, 041 296 0664, closed Tue), just steps from piazza San Marco, has a futuristic design but is anachronistically housed in a 16th-century shell. Campo Santa Margerita offers more mainstream fun with cafés and bars. In general, party animals might be better off leaving the Grand Canal and heading to the numerous bars and late-night discos on the Strand at the Lido

Piazza San Marco: Head to cafe Florian or Quadri for live music. Crowds gather to listen to popular tunes, but you'll enjoy it more sitting down enjoying the magical scenery of Piazza San Marco lit at night. 
Casanova Music Cafe: This is Venice's only Disco, located on busy Lista di Spagna in the Cannareggio district. Although the space can feel somewhat cramped at times, it still offers some reasonably eclectic music, ranging from Rock to House to Latin American Music. Lista di Spagna, Cannareggio 158/a
