For young people, a rolling Venice card can be purchased at the airport for €4 granting discounts on entry to a number of museums, attractions and concerts. This also enables you to purchase the three day travel ticket for €20.

If staying in Venice for a number of days, the three day travel ticket available from any Hello Venezia office or Marco Polo airport for a young person’s price of €20 with a Rolling Venice card is well worth getting. The ticket allows unlimited Vaporetto travel for 72 hours giving you freedom and hassle-free travel.

In the city of Venice it is against the law to feed the pigeons, although this is not a serious crime you could still be fined. The birds are seen as a pest in the city.

Venice is known as one of the safest cities in Europe, but there are still opportunists, be aware of your belongings at all times and always check the bill once to have finished dining or paying for goods.
