Hello All, Any recommendations in the city or very nearby area? I only have a day there so need to make it count! thanks!
If you only have a day in Venice I would reccommend seeing the city, the sights and enjoy the atmosphere rather than pursuing record shops. Im a big fan of italo and cosmic disco and I had longer than a day and didnt find any shops worth reporting.
Same here. There is only one tiny shop but focused mostly on Rock music. I didn’t buy anything.
In this tiny cafe they were playing some records and they had a nice atmosphere outside the touristic craziness.
Was there a few weeks ago, Living In The Past was the shop. Mostly rock, but a lot of interesting stuff in various genres and all in very good condition. Way, way overpriced but, considering how everything has to brought in via small boat, is understandable i guess. Did think about buying the Donny Hathaway live album, but baulked at 100 euros (he wouldn’t haggle down) and also didn’t take credit cards.
I’ve bought from this discogs seller based in the region before. Antonio. Nice fellow, he may be a good resource.
was hoping to do a bit of both but looks like not , thanks anyways
good advice - always good to check with the locals , thanks
This has the most amazing view for a meal or drink if you can close your eyes when paying the bill…Hotel Venezia | Dining (hoteldanieli.com)
Off to Venice for a flying visit. Any recommends for evening food / bars etc or places to get the most out of the city in one day?
I went for lunch here https://maps.app.goo.gl/NoEuGEv5fnX1ZXh7A after a recommendation of a friend that is from there. Really good food for a reasonable price.
Then for an Spritz we went here (outside of the touristic madness) and was cozy and with locals, nothing fancy. https://maps.app.goo.gl/oAxq7js4UAWyUSDr7
Was there yesterday @Apiento, you can get a lot done in one day . @AndyM was on the ball with https://www.hoteldanieli.com/en/dining.html
Its a spectacular view and the hotel itself is amazing ( check the huge old painting of Venice on ground floor and the glass guitar also on ground floor.
You can sit in upstairs on the terrace for only drinks till 6pm, after that you must eat as well. If you call them today you may be able to book.
Didn’t find any record shops.
Other touristy things:
Night time there is lovely, beautiful vibe , enjoy!
Thanks @AndyM for that tip , it really made our trip
Great, glad that worked out. We had a very memorable lunch there - the best view!
