Venice, Italy in 60 hours


Venice, Italy is formed of 177 canals and 409 bridges. There is a lot of territory to cover and things to see. When I went in May, I scheduled myself two full days and one half day there. When I travel-especially abroad, I prefer to pack as much as I can into each day with little to no down time. Now, obviously all of my plans are flexible and if I see something else that I want to do or hear about an interesting tour, I will do it.

I managed to cover Venice in 60 hours and 64,919 steps. Here's how:

call me crazy-or whatever you want but this was brilliant for being efficient. 

About a month before I left for Europe, I sat down and really looked into what I wanted to do while there. For each city, I made myself a little timed itinerary. 

The neon pink signifies attractions/things I wanted to do that I pre-paid for/ had an e-ticket for. 

Like I said before, everything was very flexible and could be changed. Before posting this here, I updated it with a few things I decided to do last minute and the restaurants I went to with what I ordered. 

This really really worked out wonderfully for me because it saved me for just wandering around aimlessly or wasting time. I took a photo and had it accessible on my phone as well as a printed copy I carried in my bag to write notes and such on.


Do you plan out your trips or just go with the flow??

  1. I can't believe you got to do so many things in such a short amount of time. I would want to be there for at least 2 weeks. lol

  2. Venice is on my bucket list!!! I plan to go for at least two weeks, whenever I go.
    Would you be willing to write a blog about the preparation and timeline days leading up to departure? I haven't traveled that far before and I'm kind of clueless when it comes to knowing where to start and for how long out! Financially too. That's be so awesome!!
    Best of luck on your trip :)

  3. LOVE this! I'm all about packing in as much as possible into a few days as well because I want to see as many cities as possible once I'm over there :-D

  4. Wow! Way to conquer Venice! My parents in law went this summer and were there for 5 days and didn't do that much! Glad you had a blast!
