      Venice water travel

      Venice May 23, 2015 at 4:36 PM

      What is the black gondola, which takes you from Giudecca to the main islands, called? It only leaves from two or three points. I'm not referring to either the vaporetti or the "romantic" gondola ride. Mille grazie.

      Restaurants in Venice and Florence

      Venice May 6, 2015 at 2:38 PM

      While in Venice, we are staying in the Ghetto region. Looking for suggestions for lunch and dinner in that area or close by as we aren't all that mobile; we want to walk no more than a km for a meal. Looking for mid-range rather casual restaurants. Also in Florence for a week. There we are located near the Bargello National Museum. Suggestions welcome.

    • Palace Stiggi??

      Venice May 18, 2015 at 11:51 AM

      Somewhere recently I read about a palace approx. 45 minutes from Marco Polo Airport and the same distance from Padua. It was the Italian version of Versailles - I think it was called Stiggi or something very similar - and had 109 rooms - try as I might I can't find anything about this beautiful palace. All suggestions much appreciated. Thanx

    • Itinerary suggestions

      Venice May 5, 2015 at 5:29 PM

      I've received great advice on visiting Murano, Burano & Torcello recently & hope to extend my search for itinerary suggestions (3 Aussie adults /54 +) during a brief 3 night / 2.5 day stay in Venice. Arriving 1.30pm, staying in San Polo, keen food, coffee & wine consumers, love a little history & art but also keen to see the real (& less touristy) Venice. No time to waste in long queue's, any pre-booked must see's, restaurant, cafe, tour suggestions welcomed. I've contacted heaps of private tour companies and am kind of shocked at the excessively high costs!
      We will be leaving via train to Milan on route to Bellagio - wondering if Verona is worth a stop on the way?
      Many thanks in advance.

      Hi, Everyone! I'll be in Venice in late November and need advice as to which sestiere I should stay in. I'll be renting an apartment or home so I am not interested in hotels. I'm currently favoring Dosoduro but I would really appreciate more info on the others! Thank you!

    • Is it safe for 19 yr old female to travel (coming from US) from Venice to Vicenza alone?

      Vicenza Apr 30, 2015 at 12:42 PM

      My daughter (19) is supposed to attend a program a program in Italy for four weeks. She's never been there before. She has to fly into Venice, then catch a bus (20-25 minute ride) to the train station for a 1-1.5 hour ride to Bassano del Grappa, Vicenza and walk to Hotel del Ponte. She will be there for weeks one and four. For weeks two and three, they will be moving to College Valmarana Morosini (in Altavilla Vicentina, Vicenza). I'm not too concerned ince she meets up with the group in Bassano. It's just getting from the airport to Bassano alone. At some point they will be traveling to Milan (Ca’ Del Bosco, Franciacorta) and the director suggested my daughter could fly into Milan but then it would be a 3.5 hr train ride to Bassano. I wanted to fly over with her, but I can't fford to do so. Thank you!

    • Murano & Burano

      Venice Apr 30, 2015 at 6:13 AM

      We hope to spend a morning (or longer?) visiting Murano & Burano & we'd appreciate any inside information for first time, Aussie visitors to Venice. Having researched a number of sites, it appears doable without a tour (our preference). Are vaporetto tickets easily purchased & would we be best to travel in the early morning to try & beat the crowds? Any tourist traps to avoid on Morano & is it possible to view a glass blowing demonstration without the hard sell afterwards?
      Many thanks for any helpful suggestions 

    • 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.
