Italy is an amazing city, well worth visiting and exploring, but there are a few things tourists and travelers should avoid or not do when they come to Venezia, Italia.
Don’t – bring too much luggage, having to lug it over all of those bridges and down long streets is not a fun thing to do,
Don’t – be surprised if the locals have different lines than the tourists
Don’t – pay for a toilet, go get a Spritz or a Coffee instead. You have to pay for something make it a treat, not a toilet.
Don-t – expect a cheap gondola ride. they are a bit pricey and you will need to pay more to get him to sing.
Don’t – forget to explore outside the main island of Venice. There are great places to visit around Venice like the Murano glass factories or farther afield in Padova and Vicenza.
Don’t – be surprised if you have walk on risers occasionally when the city floods.
Don’t – wear skimpy clothes if you are hoping to get into Basilica San Marco.
There are a lot more don’ts of visiting Venice, but why don’t you watch and learn more!

We travel with a Microsoft Surface everywhere we go. I edit my videos on it & use it to backup my pictures and vides while we travel. It’s light and the best travel laptop on the market in my opinion.
We use Sony Alpha series cameras to film our videos. They are compact so you don’t look like a super tourist when you take great pictures and videos while you travel.
We use Manfrotto Tripods. They are compact, travel well, and honestly I would not use another tripod for my nice cameras.
Travel Plug that works in pretty much any country & has four USB ports. A must for any traveler.
