Book your accommodations

It’s pretty easy to get the regular ferries across and back each day, so it not too much of a bother to stay off site in this way.
Sort your transport
The next thing you need to do is work out how you are going to get to Venice. Some folks choose to fly into Venice Marco Polo Airport. But its name is deceptive as of course it’s located on the mainland too.
