You’re planning to spend 2 days in Venice and you’re looking for the best things to do?

You’re at the right place!

In order to help you plan your stay, I have prepared for you this 2-day itinerary in Venice.

During your trip, you will discover all must-see attractions of the city such as the Saint Mark Basilica, the Doge’s Palace, a gondola ride and a lot more!

In addition to the best places to visit and activities for each stage of your itinerary, I will also give you all my best tips and accommodation suggestions depending on your budget.

So, what are the best places to visit in Venice in 2 days? Where to stay?

Let’s find out!

How to avoid waiting in line (and save a lot of time!) at Venice’s tourist attractions

When you plan a trip to one of the globe’s most popular tourist destinations, it’s not unusual to anticipate hours of standing in line to access some of the most iconic sites.

In Venice, landmarks such as the Doge’s Palace or St. Mark’s Basilica draw crowds as soon as their doors open, filled with individuals who, just like you, dream of exploring the Venetian marvels.

However, there’s no need for concern. I’m here to provide you with several tips and tricks to bypass those long lines and make the most of your 2-day itinerary in Venice!

Here are three strategies to maximize your time during your weekend in Venice.

1. The Venice Pass

The top solution to save substantial time and money during your 2-day trip in Venice is to get the “Venice Pass”.

This is very convenient: it enables you to skip the lines and gain priority entry to the city’s most popular tourist sites.

Another perk: the Venice Pass is entirely digital. There’s no need to fetch your tickets anywhere; you’ll get them instantly via email!

When purchasing the Venice Pass, you’ll have to book a specific date and time slot for the included tours.

Here’s what the pass comprises of:

  • Fast-track entrance ticket to St. Mark’s Basilica (1st day of my itinerary)
  • Skip-the-line entrance to the Doge’s Palace (1st day)
  • A gondola ride (1st day)
  • An audio guide app with narrations for all major sites
  • A 10% discount on other activities in Venice that you can book via the Tiqets website.

Personally, I consider the Venice Pass to be the best option for a 2-day Venice visit!

To get your Venice Pass, simply click on the green button below:

Voyage Tips - Advice

In addition to the Venice Pass, for seamless commuting in Venice, you should also purchase the Vaporetto pass.

This pass, available for 24h, 48h, or 72h, provides you:

  • Unlimited usage of the public transportation (ACTV vaporetti and buses) within Venice
  • Unrestricted access to the water-buses and buses in Lido, the lagoon islands, Mestre, and Marghera.

With the Vaporetto pass, you essentially enjoy unlimited boat rides across Venice 😁.

Buy it in advance here:

2. The Venice City Pass

An alternate way to explore Venice in 2 days and getting priority access to the city’s top attractions is to purchase the Venice City Pass.

It is quite similar to the previously mentioned Venice Pass, as it’s also entirely digital.

The difference here is that you’ll need to select the duration of the pass’s validity at the time of booking. For a 2-day stay in Venice, the choice is straightforward: opt for the 2-day Venice City Pass.

The Venice City Pass grants admission to the following:

  • Doge’s Palace
  • 11 museums: Museo Correr, Archaeological Museum, Biblioteca Marciana, Ca’Rezzonico, Ca’Pesaro, Glass Museum on Murano Island, Natural History Museum, Mocenigo Palace, Carlo Goldoni House, Lace Museum on Burano Island, Fortuny Museum.
  • 16 churches: Santa Maria del Giglio, San Stae, Santo Stefano, Sant’Alvise, Santa Maria Formos, San Pietro di Castello, Santa Maria dei Miracoli, Santissimo Redentore, S.Giovanni Elemosinario, Santa Maria del Rosario, San Polo, San Sebastiano, San Giacomo dall’Orio, San Giobbe, Santa Maria del Carmelo, S.Giovanni Battista in Bragora
  • Querini Stampalia Foundation.

This pass also allows you to use the public transport network at no extra cost during your 48 hours in Venice (bus and waterbus on the ACTV network).

A slight caveat: St. Mark’s Basilica admission is not included. You’ll need to purchase an additional ticket if you wish to visit it.

Voyage Tips - Advice

You’re hesitating between the Venice Pass and the Venice City Pass?

For a week end in Venice, I recommend you the Venice Pass, as it incorporates the 3 major highlights.

If your aim is to visit every little museum and church in the city, you can choose the Venice City Pass. But remember, you’ll have to acquire additional skip-the-line tickets for the Basilica or if you’re planning a gondola ride, for instance.

3. Skip-the-line tickets for Venice’s tourist attractions

Your third option to save time is to buy priority entrances one by one, for each tourist attraction you want to visit.

You will find tickets online for the main historical monuments as well as guided visits and activities. Perfect to easily organize your 2-day stay!

Just click on the name of the monuments below to get more information and book your tickets:

C. Saint Mark’s campanile
D. Doge’s Palace

A. Saint Mark’s Square

The heart of Venice and undoubtedly its most famous landmark, Saint Mark’s Square is where your 2-day tour of Venice should begin.

This historic square has been the city’s social, religious, and political center for centuries. It’s surrounded by beautiful historical buildings with impressive architecture.

Under the arcades of the buildings, you’ll also find shops and cafés, ideal for breakfast before a day of sightseeing.

Voyage Tips - Advice

How to get to Saint Mark’s Square?

On foot (if you are staying in an hotel nearby) or with the Vaporetto, the local public water bus on the Grand Canal.

With the Venice City Pass or the Vaporetto Pass, you have unlimited access to the Vaporetto during your weekend in Venice.

B. Saint Mark’s Basilica

Next up, step into the breathtaking Saint Mark’s Basilica.

Known for its intricate mosaics and impressive domes, this basilica is a testament to Venice’s rich history and its ties to the Byzantine Empire.

Inside, you’ll discover a treasury of art, from the stunning Pala d’Oro, encrusted with thousands of precious stones, to the beautiful frescoes.

Make sure to look up and admire the golden mosaics, depicting episodes from the Bible and the life of Saint Mark.

During your visit, you will also be able to learn the Basilica’s history through the museum and to admire a nice view from the Basilica’s terrace.

Please note that you need to be dress modestly (shoulders and knees should be covered) to visit Saint Mark’s Basilica.

As I mentioned before, you should really buy a skip the line tickets in advance. As you can imagine, Saint Mark’s Basilica of Venice attracts thousands of people every day who are waiting in lines for hours before entering (just because they didn’t read Voyage Tips! 😅).

If you have bought the Venice Pass, the Basilica’s skip the line ticket is already included so you don’t have to worry about the queue.

Without the pass, you have 2 others options to avoid waiting:

  • The classic skip-the-line ticket:

  • A guided tour, to learn more about St Mark’s Basilica and its history:

Voyage Tips - Advice

Beware of bogus ticket vendors in Piazza San Marco or certain websites that sell tickets giving access only to the ground floor of the Basilica (they’re useless).

Always use the links I give you in this article to obtain official admission tickets.

St Mark's Basilica
St Mark’s Basilica

C. Saint Mark’s Campanile

Your 2 days in Venice wouldn’t be complete without enjoying a panoramic view of the city.

And the best place for that?

Saint Mark’s Campanile!

This bell tower, standing proudly in Saint Mark’s Square, offers an unparalleled view of Venice’s rooftops, winding canals, and distant islands.

And you can get on the top very easily after a brief elevator ride!

Please note that the ascent to the Campanile in Venice is limited to 30 people per time slot and is not included in the Pass.

You must therefore book your visit online in advance by clicking here:

D. Doge’s Palace

To continue your 2-day trip to Venice, let’s dive deeper into Venice’s rich history with a visit to the Doge’s Palace, located right next to the Campanile.

This grand Gothic structure was the residence of the Doge of Venice, the city’s supreme authority. As you wander through its opulent rooms and grand corridors, you’ll get a glimpse of the city’s former splendor.

The history of this palace speaks of power, politics, and intrigue.

Don’t miss the majestic Grand Council Chamber and the ornate Golden Staircase.

You will also pass by the famous Bridge of Sighs, connecting the palace to the prisons. Legend has it that prisoners would sigh at their last view of beautiful Venice before their confinement – thus giving the bridge its evocative name.

Voyage Tips - Advice

The Venice city Pass and the Venice Pass both includes a fast track ticket to the Doge’s Palace.

If you don’t want to buy a pass, you still have several options to visit the palace:

Doge's Palace
Doge’s Palace – 48 hours in Venice

E. Optional: Correr Museum

Located just at the opposite end of Saint Mark’s Square from the Basilica, the Correr Museum offers a comprehensive look into Venice’s art, history, and culture.

From beautiful artworks to historical exhibits, the museum paints a picture of the city’s past and its prominent figures.

My favorite part was the Neoclassical rooms, showcasing the life of the Venetian aristocracy. You’ll appreciate the detailed interiors and the vast collection of artifacts.

If you’re an art and history enthusiast, you should definitely consider adding this to your 2 days in Venice itinerary. And you don’t have to pay the entrance to the museum as it’s already included with the Doge’s Palace ticket!

F. Gondola Tour on Venice’s Grand Canal

When you think of visiting Venice in 2 days, you probably imagine a romantic gondola ride.

As cliché as it might sound, it truly is an iconic Venetian experience. Floating through the city’s narrow canals, passing under historic bridges, and seeing Venice from a different perspective is something special.

And it will be even more special if you get a gondolier who sings!

If you have bought the Venice Pass, you can take a beautiful gondola ride, which is included in the price.

Otherwise, in order to avoid paying the tourist price, you should book your gondola ride in advance by clicking here:

If you want a more intimate experience, opt for a ride in the evening when the city takes on a magical hue and is less crowded.

G. Santa Maria Formosa / Basilica of San Giovanni e Paolo / Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli

Venice isn’t just about its popular landmarks. Part of the city’s charm lies in its lesser-known gems such as these 3 beautiful churches:

  • Santa Maria Formosa (located 5 minutes by foot from Piazza San Marco)

Known for its interesting shape and stunning artworks, this church is a harmonious blend of Renaissance and Baroque styles. Inside, you can see the beautifully painted ceilings.

It’s free with the Venice City Pass.

  • Basilica of San Giovanni e Paolo – Located 4 minutes’ walk from Santa Maria

Often called ‘San Zanipolo‘ by locals, this gigantic Gothic church houses the tombs of many Doges. It’s an architectural marvel and a place of immense historical significance.  You should definitely explore its chapels.

Entrance isn’t included in the pass, price is around 3.50€.

  • Church of Santa Maria dei Miracoli, only a 5-minute walk away

This small but beautiful marble church was my personal favorite. Its facade is adorned with colorful marbles and the interiors are equally impressive. You will see, it’s an underrated masterpiece!

It’s also free with the Venice City Pass.

Voyage Tips - Advice

The Libreria Acqua Alta, is a one-of-a-kind bookstore known for its unique setting and storage solution for its books: bathtubs, boats, and even gondolas.

This quirky arrangement is a response to Venice’s frequent flooding, ensuring the books remain dry during high water events.

Beyond its book collection, the store also boasts a charming courtyard featuring a staircase made of old books, offering a picturesque view of the adjacent canal. 

You should definitely stop by on your way to the Basilica of San Giovanni e Paolo.

H. Rialto Bridge

Ending your first day at the Rialto Bridge is a must.

As one of the four bridges spanning the Grand Canal in Venice, it’s an iconic structure that has been a commercial and architectural hub for centuries.

The views of the Grand Canal from the bridge, especially during sunset, are simply magical.

If you’re keen on capturing some memorable photos, linger around till the evening lights illuminate the waters, creating a picturesque scene. It’s a sight to remember during your weekend in Venice.

After all that, all you have to do is go and dine in a good trattoria!

Day 2 of your weekend in Venice – Continue exploring Venice (option 1)

The first option for your second day is to continue visiting the most popular place to see during a 2-day itinerary in Venice.

However if you prefer to discover Murano and Burano, the most famous island around Venice, I have also written a second option that you can read a bit below.

3 days in Venice itinerary day 2
2 days in Venice – itinerary day 2

Day 2 visits: (option 1)

A. Ca d’Oro

C. Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari
D. Scuola Grande di San Roco
E. Ca’Rezzonico
F. Ponte dell Accademia
G. Optional: the Accademia Gallery or Peggy Guggenheim Collection
H. Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute
I.  Concert or opera in Venice

A. Ca d’Oro

Begin your second day in Venice at the iconic Ca d’Oro, which translates to the “Golden House”. Originally, this palace was adorned with gold accents which have faded over time, but its beauty certainly hasn’t.

Situated along the Grand Canal (take the Vaporetto and stop at “Ca d’Oro”), it’s a stunning example of Venetian Gothic architecture with a beautiful marble facade.

Now an art museum, inside you’ll find an impressive collection of Renaissance art.

The inner courtyard is a peaceful retreat, and the balcony provides a nice view of the canal. I really loved how the history and artistry of Venice came together in this place.

If you’re visiting Venice in 2 days, this is a sight you shouldn’t miss.

Voyage Tips - Advice

As neither of the 2 city passes includes access to Ca d’Oro, you must book your ticket for the palace by clicking on the green button below:

Ca’ d’Oro Venice

B. Rialto Market

After soaking in some art and history, head over to the lively Rialto Market.

From Ca d’Oro, you  have 2 options to reach the market, which is located on the other side of the Grand Canal, just at the opposite of the palazzio:

  • Take the Vaporetto and stop at the “Rialto Mercato” stop.
  • Take the Traghetto, which is a special gondola used by local to cross. It’s up to 10 people and only cost 2€ per person. To go to the market, you need to take the Traghetto de Santa Sofia.

You will then arrive at this bustling market, with its array of colors, sounds, and scents, which offers a genuine slice of Venetian daily life.

If you’re wondering about the best things to do in 2 days in Venice, mingling with the locals here should be on your list. From fresh fish to seasonal produce and local specialties, you can find it all.

Remember to visit in the morning when the market is at its most vibrant, and the produce freshest. This is where I found some of the best local product, perfect for a quick snack while exploring.

The Rialto Market is open from Tuesday to Saturday.

There’s no better way to sample all the market’s excellent produce than to book this guided tour:

C. Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari

Venice isn’t short of magnificent churches, and the Basilica of Santa Maria Gloriosa dei Frari stands out as one of the finest.

Hidden away in the San Polo district, a 10 minute-walk from the market, this church, often simply called “Frari”, is a gothic masterpiece.

Its sheer size and the towering bell tower are super impressive!

Inside, it houses some of the city’s most treasured art pieces, including works by Titian. The wooden choir stalls and the intricate tombs add to the charm. It’s a must-visit during your weekend in Venice.

Useful information:

  • Open Monday to Saturday – 9am to 6pm
  • Sunday afternoons from 1pm
  • Admission costs €5 (+ 2€ if you want an audioguide).

D. Scuola Grande di San Roco

Just a short walk from Frari, you’ll come across the Scuola Grande di San Roco.

At first glance, it may seem like just another Venetian building, but once you step inside, you’ll see an incredible collection of paintings by Tintoretto, making it an art lover’s paradise.

Each room is filled with masterpieces, depicting various religious scenes. I was particularly taken by the ceiling of the Chapter Hall.

Tickets for the Scuola Grande can only be purchased directly on site. Admission costs €10.

Scuola Grande Di San Rocco
Scuola Grande Di San Rocco

E. Ca’Rezzonico

To wrap up your 2 days in Venice, make your way to Ca’Rezzonico.

This grand palazzo on the Grand Canal offers a deep dive into the 18th-century Venetian life.

Every floor of this museum is a journey back in time, with lavishly decorated rooms, chandeliers, frescoes, and period furniture.

The ballroom on the third floor was my favorite. Just imagining the grand parties and gatherings that took place there is exhilarating.

As you stroll through the rooms, you’ll gain a deeper appreciation for the city’s rich history and opulence. 

Ca’Rezzonico is open every day except on Tuesday. Admission to the palazzo is included with the Venice City Pass.

Ca’ Rezzonico Venice

F. Ponte dell Accademia

From Ca’ Rezzonico, take the Vaporetto and stop at “Academia”.

From the Ponte dell’Accademia you can admire the panoramic views of the Grand Canal and the historic Venetian buildings lining its edges.

This iconic bridge, one of only four that span the Grand Canal, offers an unrivaled perspective of Venice. Pausing here for a few minutes is a must during your Venice itinerary.

It’s simply one of the best photo spots in Venice!


G. Optional: the Accademia Gallery or Peggy Guggenheim Collection

Art aficionados visiting Venice in 2 days now face a challenging choice: the traditional art at the Accademia Gallery or the contemporary masterpieces at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection?

At the Accademia Gallery, I was deeply impressed by the vast collection of Venetian art, spanning from the Byzantine era to the 18th century. The works of Bellini, Titian, and Tintoretto are simply awe-inspiring.

Book your tickets for the Gallery by clicking here!

On the other hand, the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, housed in the former residence of the American heiress, is a haven for lovers of 20th-century art. Picasso, Dali, Kandinsky — Numerous world class artists are represented here!

In addition to the museum, I really enjoyed the sculpture garden, a peaceful green oasis amidst the bustling city.

The museum also offers private guided tours with a specialized art guide which need to be booked by clicking here.

H. Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute

Perched at the entrance of the Grand Canal, the majestic Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute stands as a symbol of Venice’s resilience.

Constructed as a votive offering for the city’s deliverance from the plague, its sheer size and grandeur are very impressive.

You will easily recognize it thanks to its iconic dome that dominates the Venetian skyline, beckoning visitors to explore its interiors.

Inside, the vast, octagonal space, adorned with works by Titian, offers a moment of quiet reflection. I really loved how the afternoon light filtered through its large windows, casting ethereal patterns on the marble floors.

And I also really appreciated that the entrance was free 😃.

If you wish, you can also book a guided tour (for a fee) to visit the Sacristy and the dome with a guide.

Check the opening times before you go, as they vary considerably depending on the season and the day.

Santa Maria Della Salute

I. Concert or opera in Venice

For your last evening and to truly immerse yourself in Venetian culture, you can attend a concert or opera.

Venice has a rich musical heritage, being the birthplace of Antonio Vivaldi and a hub for baroque music. Whether you’re an opera aficionado or simply looking for a memorable night out, the city’s historic theaters and intimate concert venues offer something for everyone.

If you want to spend an evening in luxury and elegance and attend an opera, you can go to La Fenice, Venice’s teatro. The list of shows can be found here, but expect them to be very expensive.

If you don’t want to spend so much money but still want to have a great time with a quality concert, I recommend you choose between:

If you don’t necessarily feel like paying to see an opera at the Teatro La Fenice, you can still visit the opera house and discover its superb interior for just €12 per person.

The island is famous for its many glassblowers’ workshops. If you want to see a demonstration and visit a workshop, you need to book here:
