How much will I spend on a trip to Venice?

Today we are going to Venice! The city of lovers breathes romance and impresses through its canals (especially with the incredible sunset that illuminates the waters!). Venice is one of the most visited cities in Italy, but many have the question: how much will I spend? Oh, before we start, how about taking a look at the post that originated this series? For that, you can click here !!! Now let’s find out how much I will spend on a trip to Venice? Here at Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia you make the trip of your dreams!!! ALSO: see our “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

Introduction

In our penultimate chapter (for now!) of our series: “How much it costs to travel?”, today we will find out how much to spend in one of the cities most sought after by tourists, Venice! Also one of the ‘most expensive’ to visit… Are you ready? So let’s understand how much we are going to spend on a trip to Venice. Find out here whether or not it is worthwhile to hire a consultancy specialized in travel to Italy!

1) How much will I spend on a trip to Venice? WITH ACCOMMODATION

Venice can be seen in 3 days with calm and tranquility (considering a round trip) or Venice only in 2 days. It is even possible to visit islands close to the city such as Murano, Burano and Torcello in one day, that is: it is not a city that requires a lot of time from the tourist. The daily rates in Venice are not the cheapest, so get organized VERY well, OK ?! See our section on Accommodation in Italy, you will find lots of information and tips on accommodation! Here the daily rates will cost between EUR 120.00 to EUR 400.00! Considering a 2-day trip with the average between the quoted values, something around EUR 140.00: for 2 days EUR 280.00 (for two people).

2) How much will I spend on a trip to Venice? WITH TRANSPORT

Definitely the best way to get to know Venice is on foot! Of course, a Vaporetto tour on the Grand Canal is indispensable. In fact, if you didn’t want to walk a lot, the best means of transport is the vaporetto or the traghetto. The vaporetto costs, on average, EUR 7.50 and is valid for one hour, but it is possible to get off at various points and catch the vaporetto as many times as you want in that period.

The Traghetto

A worthwhile option is also the traghetto, which costs a little less, EUR 4.00. If you only use it to cross the channel, from side to side, you will pay EUR 0.50. The main disadvantage of the traghetto is that they don’t work all day and there are less timetables available. See our section on Transport in Italy, you will find lots of information and tips on transport!

Gondola Ride

If you want to take a Gondola ride you will need to negotiate it, and a LOT! Values range from EUR 80 to EUR 130 !!! And it will depend on the gondolier you choose. I reinforce: negotiate it! If you prefer, buy the Venezia Unica City Pass which includes transportation and entrance to main monuments, as well as discounts on public restrooms, for example.

Vaporetto

We will then simulate the tour with the Vaporetto Card for 2 days, which costs EUR 30.00 for 2 days (including a Gondola ride for a minimum amount of EUR 80.00). In other words, for 2 people: euro 60 plus euro 80: 140.00 for two people.

3) How much will I spend on a trip to Venice? WITH EATING

Venice is very democratic when it comes to food and prices do not vary so much in restaurants, not to mention luxurious ones, of course! But, in general, a lunch / dinner menu with antipasto, main course, dessert and ¼ of wine costs around EUR 20. Again: of course it will depend on the restaurant chosen, the location among other factors, but still, it is not an expensive service. Based on a very nice value for a lunch / dinner, you will spend about EUR 40 / day and our final bill with food is around EUR 80.00 for 2 days / 160 for 2 people. Get to know our section on Food in Italy, you will find lots of information and tips on food and you will learn not to fall into culinary traps!

4) How much will I spend on a trip to Venice? WITH THE CITY MONUMENTS

Hotels I recommend in the San Marco area

San Marco is the most famous neighborhoods of Venice and, at some times of the year, it is difficult to walk around, because the city is crowded.

Hotels I recommend in Castello Area

Castello is the largest of all the “sestieri” (neighborhoods) and has an incredible waterside for good walks, in addition to being full of cafes, bars and shops. They are not cheap places to stay, but it facilitates access to the most famous tourist spots and, with that, saves on transportation, as it is possible to do everything on foot!

Hotels I recommend in Cannaregio or Dorsoduro Area

If you want something calmer, choose Cannaregio or Dorsoduro; in the latter, the nightlife is particularly active, ideal for lovers of busy bars and places to have good drinks!

Hotels I recommend in the San Polo Area

Hotels I recommend in the Santa Croce Area

Santa Croce is home to the important bus station in Piazzale Roma, which makes it very easy to get off the beaten track, including going to Santa Lucia if you want to make a stopover.

Don’t want to stay on the island? No problems! Search for Mestre, Campalto or Favaro Veneto, which are the mainland cities of Venice and offer excellent accommodation options. A little further from Piazzale Roma, about 20 minutes by water transport, they do not have magnificent views from the bedroom windows, but it is ideal for those who want to save on accommodation.

Tips

  • The tip to save A LOT is to book your hotel in advance.
  • As we also mentioned: beware of excess baggage! It is very complicated to get around with large volumes in Venice because of the bridges, stairs and narrow streets.
