    • Would have said excellent, shall they would have received commentary on the boat, appeared they did in the past but no longer have.
      If you spend the three days in Venice, worth getting a pass for each day, as it works out cheaper than using the public transport. Dont just spend your time on San Marco, get out to the islands, yeah it is time consuming and a bit rushed but you will enjoy it. Once on Lido, you wont even feel that you are in Venice.
