One Day in Venice: A Self-Guided, Car-Free, Budget Itinerary
Passing through Venice on your way to another city and don't want to break the bank? Or maybe this city is the highlight of your trip? Either way, this is the guide for you! Conveniently discover the highlights of Venice in one day, all without a car. Even if you have more than a day in Venice, I'd recommend this guide to distinguish the top sights and get a feel for their costs.

PLEASE NOTE: I have not yet had time to add descriptions to each place, but am hoping to do so in the near future :) If there's any you'd like me to prioritize, please message me on TikTok or Instagram!

I traveled to Venice by train, which I recommend due to the main station's convenient location. 

As always, I highly recommend dropping off your bags at your accommodation before doing the majority of sightseeing to avoid overexertion. If you aren't spending the night in Venice, there are luggage lockers at Venezia Santa Lucia. Alternatively, you can use an online luggage storage service, like Bounce, to stow your items for the day.

Now that you have dropped off your luggage, it's time to begin exploring!

Using a combination of public transport and walking, you'll be able to see:

My favorite supermarket in Europe, and the best place to find local snacks and pastries at reliable prices. Lots of locations in many cities.

I am a solo female traveler who likes to explore on a moderate budget; I think it's important to recognize that some opportunities when travelling will never arise again, and it's worth shelling out for them! I prefer to travel very fast-paced, and my guides will reflect that. In order to accomplish this, I have done lots of research about every place I have visited to ensure I use my time wisely. I have only travelled around Europe so far, but I am hoping to expand my horizons in the coming years :)
