1. Always walk on the righ hand side of the footpath (walking on the left is a dead giveaway that you aren’t local)
2. Cheap Italian red wine isn’t necessarily always the best (I just threw out a whole bottle because it was worse than vinegar)
3. Single wojmen staying in Venice should NOT read Ian McEwen’s Comfort of Strangers – mind you it could be worse if you are a couple and you have to read the book to find out why.
