Venice for Singles


I love being a single woman in Venice. Actually, I love being single anywhere in the world, but this city on the water makes a single woman feel extra special. I try to go to Italy annually – particularly in January after the New Years’ celebrations when the tourist are tired of partying and begin heading back home. Even though the weather can be biting and cold, the virtually empty streets and subdued energy make Venice magic during the off-season.

When making your way around the city, walking is the best mode of transportation. Venice is a town made for walking. But if you find that you just cannot take another step after spending days on foot, the city’s naval buses called ‘’Vaporetti’’ are a wonderful alternative. You can find a route map at a tourist center for a very modest price. Take a ride down the Grand Canal with a 24-hour pass or a three-day pass. It doesn’t matter which method you choose for getting around the city, traveling solo here is fun.

Eating & Drinking in Venice
It is interesting to see many of the local women strolling in their furs, and the handsome men in their cashmere and wools going about their morning chores. The colors in the city - dark ochre, terra cotta, and forest greens - all seem to stand out in winter. Bright multi-colored tarps that make the city look like it is in perpetual festivity mode cover the gondolas. And despite the chill, you can still find a local or two sitting outdoors enjoying the morning papers and a hot espresso.

Venice, during the summer months, however, is animated and stunning, but I don’t enjoy it nearly as much as being there during the off-season. In peek season, there are pickpockets and lots of men who prey on single women tourists. Of course, thieves can be found during the off-seasons, but with fewer tourists in town, the crime drops accordingly. But always be mindful of your valuables while traveling.
Of course, no trip to Venice would be complete without mentioning the food. Restaurants, both expensive and not-as-expensive, are plentiful. Surprisingly you will find little ‘’assembly line’’ tourist food and lots of yummy comfort food – Italian style! However, Venice is a tourist-friendly city, so it can be difficult finding good food that isn’t a bit costly. If your budget is a concern the northwestern parts of Venice is where reasonably priced goodies can be found.
