Venice is a unique and wonderful city for sure. There are lots of famous sights such as Piazza San Marco, Canal Grande, Rialto Bridge and much more. So what is this number one tip? I will tell you, stay tuned. But first lets take a look at some photos shall we?
When searching for a room in Venice we (my wife and I) wanted to stay in a beautiful but not too crowded (with tourists just like us...) area. We both prefer apartments with some space so we can do our things after strolling through the city. My thing is viewing and editing photos, making a backup and other photographer tasks. Wifey loves to plan the next day. So we went to Airbnb and found a very nice flat in the Cannaregio sestiere. Look at this surroundings:
Wonderful, isn't it? Colorful, lively and not too crowded. We loved this place. Let's move on and discover wonderful Venice:

Another famous Island in Venice is Burano, well known for the colorful houses.
As a photographer I absolutely loved this place, the colors are amazing!
Haha, yes, I promised you something in the beginning of this blogpost and here it is. It's so easy. And highly recommended:
Yes, just get lost. Enter one of the narrow alleys and just move on. Don't look where you are. Walk. And be filled with wonder. 5 minutes later you will have no idea where your are. But it will be wonderful where you are:
This is the lovely Rio di Santa Caterina Canal
O.K. you got lost now. For hours. So how to find back? Try studying the map (if you are really good with this, Venice is complicated to navigate). See if the GPS of your smartphone is working in the narrow streets. Just walk on and pay attention to the signs. There are many of them that show the way to the main attractions.
