Frugal and Venice?

Frugal and Venice is an oxymoron — a shame because despite the unpleasantries of pricing and crowds, this is a fun city to visit with kids. I love the recent Frugal Traveler article in the New York Times on seeing Venice on a budget — the piece is full of very specific recommendations and the experience is told from a parent’s perspective. The focus is the joy of Venice during winter months — I absolutely agree — the city is so much more enjoyable when you are not fighting throngs of tourists. The writer also outlines an excellent resource for babysitting — they found American intern living in Venice via the Peggy Guggenheim Museum. A wonderful idea! Read the complete article.
