Car Seat Laws
According to the Italian law, any time you sit in a vehicle fitted with seat belts, it is mandatory that you use them. Children who are under 36 kg (97 pounds) or 150 cm (4 ft, 9 in) must use appropriate child restraints.
Venice is a very walkable and not large in size. The most common mode of public transportation in Venice is the vaporetto boat. For a true Venetian experience you can enjoy a gondola ride to get to your destination. Licensed water taxis are a costly way to get around Venice, though they may prove handy when you’re late for the opera or have lots of luggage. Just remember to negotiate the price before you get in.

Other Things To Know
You are not expected to tip at restaurants in Italy. A service charge is sometimes added to the bill, ranging from 1 to 3 Euros, or 10% – 15%. If the service is exceptional, it is okay to give a good tip, although this is never expected.
Venice is generally not a dangerous city, so for the most part you can walk safely by its canals and campos. However, be careful with pickpockets, who tend to gravitate toward heavily congested areas.
