Venice


Venice is one of Italy's top travel cities and a wonderful, romantic destination with many attractions. Its small, traffic-free streets along the winding canals make for great walking. You'll find many brilliant churches and palaces, lively squares, and interesting shops.

Venice truly comprehends of 117 bodies of land connected by more than 400 bridges over its 150 canals. The Grand Canal is as Main Street, cutting through the center of the city.

Transportation to Venice:


The best form to travel to Venice is by train at the Santa Lucia Train Station on the northwestern edge of the city. The bus terminal and parking garages are close but across the Grand Canal in Piazzale Roma. Venice has a small airport, the Marco Polo airport.

Transportation in Venice:


The famous and principal public transport in Venice is the vaporetti, boats that use the main waterways. The #1 runs along the Grand Canal from the train station and generates many stops, so it is a good form to navigate to the main canal and obtain a good overview of the city. There are also more expensive water taxis and gondolas.

Gondolas


Gondolas are one of Venice's most representative and distinguished symbols worldwide. This classic Venetian boat is exceptionally ancient and is the result of a series of extraordinarily complex craft techniques. A gondola is 11 meters long and weighs 600 kilograms. Nevertheless of its significant weight, it is very ease to controller by just one person using a single oar. We suggested you visit the Squero (boatyard) at San Trovaso where gondolas are still made today by the master craftsmen using the ancestral techniques.
