Favorite thing Take a trip up the Campanile! You get great panoramic views of the city and its surroundings. You have to go up and down in a lift (so no good for claustraphobics), there can be quite a queue and sometimes it's really cold and windy up the top. But it's well worth it for the views.
(in the middle of this pic - 'The Bovolo' - see later).
Favorite thing The tower is also located at San Marco. Pay whatever money to get in all these places because its all well worth you money!! You get pretty high up in the tower and its a great view! Also you have to see the people with the pigeons. Interesting though I don't personally suggest being the bird feeder. Watch others though, its good for a laugh!
Favorite thing I am sorry I cannot recommend any restaurant as I am a vegetarian and I wasn't able to eat any type of meat whatsoever. I ate only soup in this very expensive restaurant, which I don't remember the name. Food in general in Venice is not very good unless you love seafood.
Fondest memory My best memory of Venice is being cold, wet, sick, lost, and hungry. For some bloody reason, we could not find our way to where we were going :-P I do miss the uniqueness of the city; its architecture, its atmosphere, its environment and most of all, the idea of the whole city being in the water. It is amazing!!! One should not miss this city at all. I guarantee that you will love it there. :-)
Favorite thing This is the tower in the San Marcos Square. You can take an elevator to the top for a small fee and the view from there is fantastic, you can see all of Venice at your feet.
Favorite thing For a better overview of Venice, you must get to the top of the tower. It's worth for you to pay and wait for a lift.
Favorite thing Please stop saying “the venice of north” , "the Venice of east”, there is only one city like Venice: Venice!
Fondest memory every building is a discover!
Favorite thing You must ascend the San Marco Bell tower. (Shhhh, we took the elevator!) The views from here are breathtaking and photo opportunities endless.
