Venice Layover Tips For Flight Attendants | WOC

So I recently asked a friend if she had to describe Venice in one word, what would it be? She said the word would be ‘Art’. Venice is a beautiful city, often a synonym for culture and romance. You’re lucky to have landed here for your layover and we have some great tips for you to discover the city in less than 48 hours!

What to do in Venice for 24h to 48h

Visit the Piazza San Marco – This is the most famous piazza in Venice. It’s crowded, full of pigeons, and occasionally flooded, but despite the crowds, it’s a majestic place.

Enter Basilica San Marco – St. Mark’s Basilica is the third building on its spot on the Piazza San Marco. It has some amazing mosaics, statues and art work.

Tour the Doge’s Palace – A series of 120 doges ruled Venice, and their incredible three story palace predates the Renaissance. The facade features beautiful arches and pink and white marble. The palace is located on St. Mark’s Square. The inside of the palace is remarkable and filled with artwork. Tours will take visitors across the Bridge of Sighs to the nearby prison cells, one of which once housed famous Cassanova. WOC Tip: Admission is 19 EUR (and includes entrance to Museo Correr). It’s open daily from 8:30am-7pm.

Take a Gondola ride – A gondola ride can be very romantic if taken around dusk. A typical ride costs 90 EUR during the day, and expect closer to 140 EUR at night.

Explore Lido – If you want to escape the city, Lido is an island between Venice and the sea that has a beach on where you can relax. Cabanas can also be rented.

Visit the markets – Venice has great markets where you can buy some delicious food at a fraction of the cost than at the restaurants.

Visit Murano Island – Close to Venice, nearby Murano island is the tourist trap home of the famous glass blowers of the famous Murano glass. Although the island is filled with expensive souvenirs (avoid buying anything on the island!), it can still be an educational and fun afternoon learning and watching how the glass is blown.

I Tre Mercanti – This food gallery can be found just a stone’s skip away from St. Marco’s Square. The specialty here is Italian dishes but the cool part is the number of regional specialties from around Italy. It’s kind of like heaven.
