1) This is a city that can quickly add up. If you don’t have George Clooney’s budget, then avoid eating and drinking in St Mark’s square. In the side streets and alleyways there’s a host of traditional osteria’s and trattoria serving inexpensive fare to the locals. Most have set lunches at very reasonable prices. And you’ll get a real feel for Venetian life if you avoid the tour bus crowd too.
2) Don’t just stick to the main tourist sites. Explore local neighbourhoods such as Cannaregio and Castello where you will find fewer tourists and a lot more more local life, find a café and watch the Venetian way of life.
3) Enjoy a drink at a reasonable price. Head to Campo Santo Margherita which is a hang out for the local university students ensuring a great atmosphere and cheaper prices!
