Arrival to Venice (info about bus tickets from airoport to Piazzale Roma here) and check in at Casa Sant´Andrea. Dinner at a tipical restaurant (I have a list, I´ll book in advance). While in Venice, we could buy a 72 hr. ticket, maybe starting from day 2 or 3) here are the rates.
Day 2 – Fri. June 7
Guided walking tour of Venice in English (S. Marco and all surroundings), the rate for three hours is 195 Euros in total, I think it is worth getting to know the city properly, I have booked the guide, he´s going to pick us up at the hotel at 9.00.
