    • Ideas for something special to do for a birthday in Venice

      Venice Apr 15, 2015 at 1:23 PM

      Hi,
      Just posted my first question but can't see that it has registered so I'll try again.

      I had planned to take my partner on a helicopter flight over Venice for his birthday next Wednesday but didn't get a reply to 3 emails to Heliair, based at the Lido airport. No answers to phone calls at their Lido office either. Eventually got a number via the hotel concierge where we are due to stay. only to call and be told they are not running helicopter trips this year due to a 'family catastrophe'. So my plan has fallen apart - though of course I am sorry for the family catastrophe. So with less than a week to go I am looking for something interesting, unusual or special to do for him. I plan to take him for cocktails on the terrace of the Gritti Palace hotel in the afternoon so can still do that but
      ANY other suggestions would be welcome.
      Thanks
      Debra

      Traveling between Venice and Florence

      Venice Apr 12, 2015 at 4:46 PM

      I have several questions in preparation for my upcoming trip to Italy.
      We land at Marco Polo airport. What is easiest way to get to the Ghetto district, where are apartment is?
      After a week, we plan to take train from Venice (Santa Lucia station?) to Florence. Then returning to Marco Polo airport a week later for trip back to Canada. Looks to me like I should take train from Florence to Venice Mestre station and then a shuttle bus to airport. I'd appreciate any words of wisdom regarding these travel plans, thank you

    • Vogalonga and Itinerary questions

      Venice Apr 7, 2015 at 3:24 PM

      I am traveling to Venice with my mother by train Saturday mid morning or early afternoon on Saturday, May 23. We are leaving Venice by plane on Tuesday, May 26 at 1 in the afternoon, so we have 2 full days and a half day. I'm hoping for some advice or thoughts on my itinerary. I found out after we booked that the Vogalonga is on Sunday.

      Saturday: Get familiar with Venice, probably do the vaporetto on the Grand Canal and see some of Venice in the evening after the tourists are gone by Piazza San Marco. Our hotel is by Rialto bridge/San Marco area.

      Sunday/Monday: Vogalonga is from 9 am to about 3 pm, but I don't know that my mother and I will want to watch the whole thing. I've read from previous years that I should watch the start, and maybe around 11 or noon move to a different location to see them coming back around to the end. I've read up already on a few good viewing places such as Cannaregio, Campo San Vio or the Dogana. I imagine we'd want to watch for a half hour to an hour but I don't know that we'd want to watch for 4 hours or more.

      Are there quick things to do or sights to see in the meantime? Do we need to arrive early Sunday morning to get a good spot to view? Should we not bother seeing the start, or the end?

      We want to do the secret itineraries tour, but I know that is only in the morning at certain times, so if we watch the vogalonga, we will not be able to do that on Sunday. However, I also was hoping to visit one of the islands. Is it possible to visit Burano and/or the cemetery island in an afternoon on Sunday, or Monday afternoon after the secret itineraries tour, or do we need a whole day?

      I doubt we'll have time to do much Tuesday before we leave, but perhaps the market? I understand the fish market is closed Sunday/Monday. Does that seem feasible if the flight leaves at 1:25?

      Hi

      We are planning a holiday to Garda in mid September. We will be flying in to Milan linate and thinking of staying at Del Garda village and camping. Any reviews on this accommodation in September? Also what would be the best way to get from the airport to here as it's a 1.5 hr drive. Is there a bus/ train? If transport is safe and reliable then we won't bother renting a car to avoid hassles of car seats etc as we won't be exploring that much. We were thinking of visiting Gardaland for sure.. Is one day enough or could we do two? We were also interested in the aquarium as our sons love it....but saw a comment they don't allow pushchairs in! Is this true??

      They would also love Parco natura viva....but do you need to have your own car to visit?

      Where else would you suggest? We are staying 5 nights.

      any answers to all my questions are appreciated!! :)

      Our 3 Full-day Venice Itinerary (First time in Italy - Need advice)

      Venice Apr 8, 2015 at 5:48 PM

      This is our first time in Europe and we decided to go ultra adventurous by planning everything on our own. We're on a budget trip, so we might skip the restaurants and eat at the cicchetti bars, vaporetto rides instead of gondolas, San Giorgio's belltower instead of San Marco's bell tower, and other stuff I've read online that are much better alternatives to the tourist traps.

      We'll arrive 10pm in Venice airport, so that'll just be spent sleeping, and on our 5th day we're off early morning. That means we have 3 full days in Venice. Our hotel is beside Ponte della Costituzione by the way and it has breakfast, so no problem there.

      Without further ado, here is our detailed itinerary for our 4-nights 5 days trip to Venice. Comments, suggestions, criticisms, advice needed:

      Day 1

      • Grand Canal tour (by vaporetto 1) from Piazzale Roma to San Marco
      • Basilica di San Marco (before 9:30)
      • Palazzo Ducale (before 11:20) "Secret Itineraries"
      • Lunch at Dal Moro's and Suso Gelatoteca
      • Ponte di Rialto and its shops
      • Ca' Pesaro and Museo di Storia Naturale
      • Dinner at Quanto Basta and Cocaeta
      • Get extremely lost

      Day 2

      • Morning walk down to Dorsoduro area
      • Gallerie dell'Accademia
      • Lunch at Gia' Schiavi or Al Squero
      • Peggy Guggenheim
      • Santa Maria della Salute
      • Ca' Rezzonico
      • Gelato at Gelateria il Doge
      • Dinner at Colpo De Mato
      • Get extremely lost

      Day 3

      • San Giorgio Maggiore (by vaporetto 2)  and its campanile
      • Biblioteca Marciana
      • Museo Archeologico
      • Museo Civico Correr
      • Lunch and gelato at Ponte di Rialto area
      • Casa di Carlo Goldoni
      • Scuola di San Rocco
      • Dinner at Giardini Papadopoli area
      • Get extremely lost

      Can you recommend a good 'Food Tour' in Venice?

      Venice Mar 29, 2015 at 11:56 PM

      We're going to stay in Venice for 4 full days and I wish to surprise my wife with a (half day or full day) culinary tour while we're there. We saw a video about the various local cicchetti we could try that are really affordable and delicious. But we don't speak Italian and we're from Japan so we have no idea about tipping at all. So a guided tour about things to eat in Venice and wine to sample would be amazing.

      Do you have any recommended or tried & tested food tours in Venice we could do?
