Great Trivia And Other Info On Venice

Jun 14, 2008
Oh yes it helps to know something about the city you are going to visit, even if it is only trivia. It just helps you to be better prepared for the experience.

On this page, we have collected some information that could be of value as you slosh your way through the city.

Many restaurants have menu cards that say minimum two orders. Why on earth they should force you to order two dishes of the same type I cant understand but that is how it is. You are lucky if you have a companion who shares your taste in food, but then again, you may not have such a friend with you. I have two suggestions, offer to walk out, especially if the restaurant is not crowded or get the duplicate packed for later.

Toilets A tourist city should have a lot more than Venice has. There are toilets near most prominent tourist spots but there could be a lot more. Carry some change with you all the time. Railway stations are of course well equipped but you still need to know where to find them.

Church Tourism No doubt, Venice is famous for its churches, but if you are going in only to sight see and there is a service on, you will be stopped at the door. Either attend the service or come after a while. We can not argue with this, it does make eminent sense.

Hundreds of small statues of the Virgin Mary and of Lord Jesus can be found all over the city. No one has even attempted to count them Yet, come evening, and you will find candles lit under all. This is something that the tourist can participate in as well. Who knows? Your prayers might just be answered as well

The Pigeons At San Marcos Squarem

There are hundreds of pigeons at the San Marcos Square. It is a nice tradition that people feed the pigeons as they pass by. You can get bird feed for about a euro for a packet. Children have a field day scattering grain and watching the birds take off and land again. Hundreds or maybe thousands of pigeons flapping in unison are a sight to treasure.

Queues

There are queues everywhere. But this is only to be expected since the tourists are in such large numbers. While you may not like to wait in a queue, you will surely appreciate the orderliness of it all. On the flip side, it will always take you longer to see a monument than you plan for because of the queues. So adjust for this in you plans.
