How about mentioning Rome, Naples, Sorrento and Capri there are things to do in those places in Italy. Italy doesn't consist of just Venice. Anyway just a passing thought and if h2g2 is thinking about starting articles on any of these places i am very willing to help I have had experience of thoselaces twice now. smiley - biggrin

Yes, but this particular article was about Venice. There may well be other articles about Rome, Naples, Sorrento and Capri, and if not, perhaps you might like to start one?

You're absolutely right about Rome! I've just gone and suggested in on Challenge h2g2:

Edited Guide entries do exist on:
A371431 Naples and Vesuvius, Italy
A765074 Da Michele, Naples, Campania, Italy (quite a good entry on a restaurant, that)
A371396 Capri, Italy
A416260 Sorrento, Italy

but they're quite old in EG terms... I reckon if they were submitted to </.>PeerReview</.> today, we'd say yes, very good, like it so far, but can you tell us any more?

Fortunately the UpdateForum has recently opened for business, so if you felt like expanding on any of the existing entries, you could submit a revised version to any of those smiley - ok

Also, if you like this kind of entry, would you like to join us at A1286886? We're always looking for new people with experience of different bits of the world... and can help a bit if you're thinking of writing something.

smiley - cheers

Visited Venice for the third time last October and took three members of my family who hadn't been before. They were all delighted, even managed to find a couple of good restaurants!

I think the best deals are; the waterbus, get a pass that will allow you to jump on and off anywhere.
Get hold of a Time Out guide, found that to be the best one.
Take a free water taxi to the glass works at Murano. Don't buy anything of course (too expensive) but you can have a wander round the island. The touts will offer you a ticket at one of the main bus stops near StMarks (you'll have to get a bus back).

I hope to take my partner back there this year in October to see all the things I missed the last time.
