Re: Travel Junkies, In Need of Travel Tips.

It's great that you're going in March! The crowds will be much more manageable at all your destinations than peak summer season.

 

In Venice, take a vaporetto to one of the outlying islands -- Burano was great, a quaint town pictureque in a totally different way than the crazy bustle of Venice.

 

Consider taking the train Venice - Rome: it's under 3.5 hours on a very fast, comfortable, and affordable train service. Less time center-to-center than flying.

 

In terms of your interest in "curious" things, reference Atlas Obscura, it's a great source for interesting sites in any destination.

 

If you like his style, there are several great audio walking tours you can download free from Rick Steves's website.
