Travel Cheats: Venice Italy

Romantic and charismatic, Venice, Italy is an enchanted vacation destination that let's you step back 600 years into the past. With 20 million tourists flocking here each year locals know how to make sure you have a great time. The popularity also means a plethora of options await. Planning what to do and where to stay can be intimidating in a city with so many choices. We have simplified travel to Venice with top travel tips for your vacation: Venice is a small city but it would still take a few hours to walk from one end to the other. Getting around is not necessarily easy, especially for those with limited mobility. For this reason due diligence about where to rest at night (not just the hotel but the actual district) is extremely important. If you are one of the 16.5 million yearly visitors staying for a day, spend the extra money and pick something close to your favorite attractions. If staying for a week or more you might want to consider switching hotels half way through. Stay close to the attractions and explore, than move to an outer area if planning on heading to places like Pisa or the vineyards.

8 Eco-Friendly Vacation Tips for the Average Traveler

Not all of us are eco-hipsters who spend their every day counting their carbon footprint ... even if we should be. But, there are still easy things to do when planning and taking your vacation to ensure you don't have a horrible eco-impact on the paradise you are visiting. We all love telling people that they have to go where we have been, so preserving it for them (and future generations) makes perfect sense. More and more destinations (like cities in Mexico) and tour operators are demanding you bring biodegradable sunscreen on your water excursion. Billions of people hit the ocean and lakes every year and there is a big problem with micro-organisms and coral reefs dying off and the cause is thought to be chemicals in non-biodegradable sunscreen and bug spray. If you do nothing else eco-friendly, do this. It is such a small effort will help protect ocean life for future generations.
