    • road from Cortina to Venice

      Cortina d'Ampezzo Aug 24, 2015 at 1:41 AM

      we'll return our car in Mestre at noon. We leave Cortina after breakfast (after 11 days in the Lakes and Dolomites).
      The tripfrom Cortina to Venice is about 2 hours, so we have about 1-2(-3 ? maybe) spare hours.
      Any suggestions for nice places to stop and see on our way to Venice? And an evaluation of time for each of them.

    • Walk from Piazzali Roma to San Basilio port

      Venice Aug 23, 2015 at 9:20 PM

      We are staying at a hotel very close to P Roma, and we are boarding a Windstar cruise the next day. What do you think about walking- hubby will have a mid size wheeled bag with an overbite bag on top, and I will have a carry on size wheeled bag. We will leave the hotel about 10:30, and we would like to walk to the port, arriving around 1pm. I think it would be a nice way to see that area on our way, walking in a leisurely fashion. Am I deluding myself, or do you think this plan makes sense, and if not what would be the suggested mode of transport?

The two apartments that I've narrowed it down to; are each in one of the two districts. Could you please tell me how far the two neighborhoods are to each other? Thank you very much.

    • Day trip to Venice

      Malcesine Aug 5, 2015 at 12:46 PM

      We've seen that it's poss to take a day trip by coach from Malcesine to Venice, but are warned it's a several hour duration journey. Alternative could be by train, but we're not close to the line/station, so may not be practicable time wise, or is it? Is the train faster than coach? Then can we join an organised walking tour on arrival in Venice?

      If best arrangement is to take a package coach / walking tour etc - is it possible to book & buy tickets in Malcesine? We've only been able to find Europlan but there are prob others?

      Thanks for any advice

    • Stairs on bridges

      Venice Aug 13, 2015 at 7:32 AM

      We are coming to Venice for the first time, next year. I am disabled, and walk short distances. For extended distances I take my electric scooter. My husband is my caregiver. I watched 'Bread and Chocolate' last night and found that the bridges in Venice have stairs; do they all have stairs; do any of the bridges have a way to get around them? Would it be better if we stayed on an island, ex: Giudecca? We were originally thinking about staying in San Croce or Cannaregio, or Giudecca. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    • Bus Fine in Mestre

      by slinkyl87 Online Now Aug 18, 2014 at 9:35 AM

      I was in Mestre a week ago and received a fine while taking the bus to the airport on my way out of the country. I had validated my train ticket to get to Mestre and was told at the office that it would work for both the train and bus. Since I was in Italy for five days I used the train every day this was my first experience with the bus, I had used the water taxi and had the pass that worked on all public transportation so I assumed this was the same. I was wrong and received a fine even though the couple next to me who also did not have validated tickets was allowed to purchase tickets upon leaving the bus and I was not. No idea why even though I produced my validated train ticket and attempted to explain what happened. My question is is there a number or website I can go to pay the fine, or do I have to mail it in?
