"Visits to St Mark's Square are free, the Rialto Bridge and market and many of the churches in Venice are free to enter (there is usually a small charge for the museums or the towers) If you buy a 48 or 72 hour Vaporetto ticket you can travel along the lagoon and visit some of the interesting islands like Murano Island Burano (for the pretty coloured houses) and maybe Isola di San Michele There are many great little hidden cafes off the main thoroughfare that are very cheap, just steer clear of the touristy areas like San Marco and Rialto."
