San Marco square is the main tourist destination in Venice so you will find tourist walking towards it or away from it.
We left for the grand canal. It is a bridge connecting the two parts of Venice. From atop you get a good view of the city. We stopped at Campo San Toma on the way for some rest. The squares had colourful old buildings which added an ancient mystical flare to the city.
We were extremely tired by then and the whole point of making this Itinerary was to reach the Fondamenta delle Zattere to watch the sunset.
FONDAMENTA DELLE ZATTERE
It is a sunny promenade in Venice It is an old shipyard and a place to chill with a beer in the evening. You will see young crowd relaxing there in cafes facing the sunset. Cruise ships cross by and are a sight to remember.
We had to catch a night bus to naples so we went to get our backpacks. We left the beautiful city behind with memories fresh in our minds.

Cicheti is a specialty dish in Venice! Especially if you’re a seafood lover you should try it out
They are basically bajjis and samosas with seafood stuffing. They were cheap (2-3 euros each) and my poor vegetarian friend could not try any of it.
Gelatos must be tried else you would not do justice to the city. Some delicious icecreams the city has!
We stopped by at a gelato store and had lemon gelato, one of its kind.
Pizzas and pastas are abundant here as it is the staple food of the locals in Italy. You can find pizzas as cheap as 5 euros and that was our saviour for some meals.
