You will get lost in Venice just accept it. But thats one of the great charms about Venice. You can get lost in this and be happy with no concerns. Who knows whats around the next corner, a flower shop, a fruit stand or the shop that has that Madquerade Mask youve been searching for. Venice is one of the few places in this world where you dont have to ask for directions, that is until you want to go back to your hotel room then its ok to break out a map. But even with a map, you will get lost.
