Saint Mark’s Basilica: You’ll need to cover your shoulders and knees to enter Saint Mark’s Basilica. You’ll want to wear pants or a long dress that day to avoid being turned away.
Taking a Gondola Ride: When you’re being rowed through the narrow canals, you’ll want to wear something photogenic since you’ll surely be snapping a lot of pictures. Wearing a jumpsuit or a sundress is ideal. Don’t forget a hat and sunglasses to protect you from the sun.
Burano: Burano is a colorful neighborhood in Venice that is great for wandering around and getting lost. Since the buildings are painted with bright colors, I think it’s best to wear something that contrasts colors, like a solid black dress or shorts and a stylish shirt that will stand out in photos. Plus wear comfy shoes because you’ll be getting in some major steps.
Carnival: The most important thing to wear at the carnival is a mask. Other than that you can wear whatever you’d like, be it a full costume or a chic jumpsuit. As long as you have a mask on, you’ll fit right in.
Climbing the Campanile Di San Marco: You should always wear comfortable shoes in Venice but particularly on the day that you’re going to climb the Campanile Di San Marco. The 323 steps will be much more enjoyable if you’re wearing shoes that are easy on your feet.
Going for Dinner: Feel free to get dressed up for a dinner in Venice. Italians don’t need a reason to get dressed up, so naturally, for dinner, they step it up a notch. You’ll want to wear something elegant like a black dress and stylish shoes. Guys should wear a collared shirt and a nice pair of pants with shoes that fit the outfit.
