Long Weekend Escape - New York or Venice?

Ask a Question

Asking on behalf of our family friends: they are looking at going to either New York or Venice for a long weekend (Friday to Monday) and we aren't in a position to offer advice as we haven't been so I wondered if anyone here might have any thoughts on what would be best to spend their money on?

New York if it's near to Christmas but Venice would win every time. The only problem is to avoid the flooding season of Venice. (I do mean serious flooding that means the prices are cheap - beware) There are some amazing places to eat in Venice away from the expensive squares and the people are so very friendly. Get your friends to check out some travel blogs for the months they are hoping to travel and that should help them.

I would love to go to Venice again for the scenery and architecture but New York is great for shopping and atmosphere. Just warn your friends to be careful of the taxi drivers in NY, eventhough the fare had been agreed our taxi driver held our luggage hostage til we paid the exhorbitant fee!

I'd choose Venice. Personally, I think the USA is too far away for a 3 night trip.

I had never thought it was possible but it actually seems like its very popular for people to just go for the few days and just have to make sure you've got everything planned ahead of time.
