The tourist traps to avoid while in Venice
- Back streets are your best friends: always go a couple of streets further back from the Piazza - or from the Grand Canal. Your wallet will thank you.
- Friendly waiters are not your best friends: As a rule of thumb, restaurants with waiters standing outside calling you to eat are probably the ones you should avoid. Same applies to shops.
- Eat where locals eat. In general, if you hear clients speaking Italian with each other, go. Second, eat the regional specialities. Each region has its own popular dishes, don't try northern food in Venice.
- Orchestras: when you eat at restaurants with live music, remember that the music comes at a cost. Y'oull probably pay extra on your bill. - For typical Venitian experiences, bargaining is usually recommended (not in museums of course...).
