    • Venice and day trips

      Venice Dec 2, 2014 at 3:30 AM

      I'm going to Venice for my birthday in february (2 days after the carnival ends). This is going to be my second time in Venice. I booked the same hotel there.

      As I love the city, this time I want to explore also more of the Veneto places. I have only 3.5 days. I'm not that into museums or churches, I like to explore beautiful cities with nice views and good atmosphere. Where do you recommend me to go?

      I thought for the first day to take a train to Verona. The second day train to Cittadella, Vicenza and Bassano del grappa (is it doable all 3 in the same day??) the third day to Padova and more of venice and the forth day again Venice. Is that a good plan? Should I go to other places instead? I wish I could go to the dolmitie mountains or lake garda but it's too far and not the season (not into doing ski) so maybe next time...

      Also, in Venice I really liked the 3 islands, especially burano so I'll go there again, but I've never been to Lido. Should I go just to see it or not because it's off the season?? do you have any other suggestions for places to go for someone who was in Venice? I did the Doge's palace tour, I went into the tower to see the view and the basilica, even a bit at the local island (Juduca I think is the name?)

      Thanks for any help! :)

    • How about traveling to Venice for the Carnival 2015 with two kids (2 & 4)

      Venice Dec 1, 2014 at 7:18 AM

      Hello there!

      I'm wondering if it is wise to visit Venice during the next Carnival for 2015 with two little kids (ages 2 & 4).
      I'm looking apartments with Airbnb. Is out there a better solution? I imagine hotels are very expensive in those days.

      Do you have a good web to learn everything important related to the Carnival in Venice?

      Thanks a lot!

      Jose

      "Venice to ban wheeled suitcases"

      (Not my merit, VTer @Tuzik, Olga, found it and posted this on FB:
      edition.cnn.com/2014/11/21/t...
      Quoted from this article written Nov 21, 2014 by Barry Neild, CNN:

      • City officials have become so tired with the cacophony of rumbling luggage they're introducing fines of up to 500 euros ($620) for anyone caught using one.

      The move, due to come into effect in May 2015, is likely to create a headache for many of 22 million who annually visit the city and need to cart bags to hotels in car-free streets.*

      • The new rules, which will require luggage to be transported on quieter air-filled tires, are the idea of City Commissioner Victor Zapparlorto, according to the Il Messaggero newspaper."

    • Unusual sounds/sirens on Burano island

      by tonepome Online Now Jan 31, 2012 at 6:32 AM

      I was in Venice last week (Jan 2012) and my partner and myself went for a day-trip to Murano and Burano islands. Whilst on Burano we became aware of the most unusual (to our ears anyway) whistle or siren sound that appeared to be coming from the main clock tower with SOME degree of regularity - this really did sound bizarre, a very electronic seris of whistles and bleeps that we convinced ourselves couldn't possibly be just the marking of the hour or 1/4 hr etc?
      It may however have been something to mark the regular arrival or departure of the ferry services but we are still none the wiser
      Can anybody illuminate me further as to the origin or purpose of this strange signal? Does anyone have a sound recording of it!? Sounded long, loud and particularly eeire on a old, clear mid-winters day in January
      Many thanks

    • accommodations on Burano

      by moxxxie Online Now Feb 8, 2010 at 9:12 AM

      Over ten years ago, my friends and I stayed in a small hotel on the Island of Burano. I remember little about it except that it was not obvious at all (the entry door was down an alley or corridor), that it had more than one floor, and that it was not very far from where the boat from St. Mark's Square docked. Has anyone stayed on Burano? Is there still a small hotel there?
      Thanks so much.
