Venetian hints

The city is one of the most visited in the world, thus usually overcrowded.
The weather is usually chilly but luckily, due to the almost ending winter season, the Neutrino Conference week could be a pleasant one. Should not be so, consider the opportunity to have a warm coat with you for any case, especially during evening time.

There are many restaurants in the city but they all close early at night, unless they have received reservation for tables. We suggest you to always book in advance your table for dinner indicating the arrival time as well, in order to avoid a useless search for an open restaurant. (Make a call in the morning). Tips are not mandatory.
