Walk everywhere

This car-free , calm city is actually an island located in a calm lagoon. Here, you can best explore its many delights by walking-the shorelines will always meet up with you at short distances.

Stay away from Pizzas

While a personal pizza purchased in busy tourist areas can bring you down by €13 to €15 (which is $19!), the plate of cicheti-the regional tapas-like food served with a glass of local wine in a laid-back baccaro will pinch your pocket with an expense of $ 5 only. Loved by the local populace and foreign tourists alike, this and other regional dishes found in active downtown eateries make your trip all the more budgeted. Keep a watch for places like Campiello di Remer-which help you enjoy orange or red cocktails (called spritz) with never-ending doses of salads, spreads, and delectable dishes that take care of your other meals.

Refrain from Climbing High

Here, you must steer clear of climbing anything-especially if you are going low on your cash. For instance, enter free into the stunningly ornate  St. Mark’s Basilica, but do not choose to get on to the gallery across San Marco square for a better view -you will have to pay!

Stay away from Public Toilets

Using a public toilet costs about $2. Instead of spending that kind of money in  a potentially filthy toilet, buy yourself a bottle of water at a cafeteria-as a client, you may use their clean and proper bathroom. (image by David Thousand Words)
