Smart Tourist in Venice

The tourist board of Venice together with the city hall have written ten suggestions for a pleasant stay. We have reported this document for your information:

1) Get a map of the city and remember that Venice is much more than just St. Mark's Square.

2) Show respect for the city by helping us keep it clean: never throw litter on the ground or into the canals.

3) Always wear appropriate clothing. Keep right when walking in the city street. Never stop on bridges. Take off your backpack when on the city boats.

4) Remember that St. Mark's Square and the surrounding area is an open-air museum (people who picnic in the square and leave litter behind will be subject to fines).

5) Get a Venice Card and use it. The Card offers many advantages and can help us to make you feel welcome in Venice.

6) Only use authorized services and transportation. Always ask what the fare will be before boarding.

7) Beware of unauthorized peddlersand watch out for pick-pockets.

8) Venice is subject to frequent flooding. A warning siren announces exceptionally high tides. You can still visit many areas of the city by using the wooden walkways.

9) The city also has disabled access routes. For more details contact the APT or Informahandicap.

10) To exercise your rights or lodge a complaint, contact the APT Complaint Office or the Counter of Tourist Mediation.

Many points could sound ovious but.... maybe, not for everybody!
