Which is the best places to visit in Venice?
After spending time in Venice we need to head to Rijeka, Croatia.
Can you get there in one day using the train/bus? I cannot find a bus/train schedule from Venice to Triesta.
Appreciate your help.
Thanks - Kim, Australia
Hi, Everyone! Can someone please refer me to a reliable, high quality agency that offers apartment rentals in Venice? I'm looking for one that reflects the Italian architecture the older the building the better. Thanks!
I am a big fan of Venice and visit occasionally - almost always staying in the Dorsoduro somewhere near Guggenheim. In June we will be spending a few nights with friends there and one of the accommodations they're considering is in Giudecca. Does anyone have any experience of staying there. The place looks great, but not sure if the need to take a ferry to Dorsoduro and S. Marco is a big hinderance. We have a small child so probably wouldn't be out late, but I'd still like to avoid hassles. The relative peace and quiet and slower pace is very appealing though. Any thoughts?
I want to thank concierge and hotel desk staff upon my arrival for their help and thought I would bring a gift basket of treats, cookies, chocolate because they were really very patient and I would like to know if anyone has a suggestion or if something else is more appropriate.
Also, is there a shop or a patisseria I should look for?

Does somebody know whether Venice is closed for cars during carnival ??

Venice in 1 day? What are the highlights?
Heey Venetian & Italian guys,
I´m about to come to Venice for Venetian Carnival 2015 by the first week of February. I´m looking for housing for a few days, so please if there is some kind and friendly person, do not hesitate and write me. I will really appreciate it.
If you don´t have conditions to offer me housing, just write me and we could hang out together during Carnival and have some fun there. More people on the trip means more joint experiences and more adventures, so be ready for that!
Thanks a lot, wish all of you a Happy New Year full of success, happiness and traveling around the world.

We are going to Venice by train from Rome. Staying at the Molino Stucky Hotel on Guidecca Island. We are then flying home from Venice. Tips for the best way to get to the hotel from the train station and to the airport from the hotel?
Please guide me all about the carnival. We are a young couple visiting venice specially to be a part of the carnival. Which will be a good place to stay? Where to rent the costumes and the balls to attend. We are on a budget, but yet would like to participate in all.
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! :)
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!
Hi, I want to go to Venice during Xmas. However, I wonder whether all shops in Venice will be closed on 25 & 26th Dec?
(Not my merit, VTer @Tuzik, Olga, found it and posted this on FB:
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."
Hi - below is the public transportation I have obtained from outlet mall website, Would like to find out if San Dona - Jesolo train station is near to San Dona di Piave bus station? I tried to google map that but it seem very far off so I am not sure.
From Venice Santa Lucia or Venezia Mestre station take the Venice-Trieste trainline and get off at San Donà-Jesolo station.
From San Donà di Piave bus station you can take either a bus direct to McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Noventa di Piave (line 21 operated by ATVO) or a taxi (please contact 0421-54690).
My daughter needs to practice the violin at least 2 hours per day. Do you know where she can do this in Venice around Academia?

Has anyone had any experience using the train from Venice to Florence? We fly from Toronto to Venice, spend a week there and then travel to Florence for a week and then return to Venice airport. Just wondering if anyone has any advice. Thank you.
I tried to post this question a little while ago, and it's not showing up, so forgive me if I'm posting it a second time. (Am new, can you tell?)
Wanting to travel to Venice in the winter, and am thinking I'd rather fly to Milan and train to Venice than fly "directly" to Venice with a layover in a European airport. I can see that the train makes a lot of sense, but I can't see what I'd have to do to get from the Milan airport to a station where I can get the train to Venice. Will that be time-costly and/or difficult in any way, what with shlepping a bag and all? Thanks so much!
Has anyone parked at Marco Polo airport whilst going on a Norwegian Cruise from Venice? We have booked our car into the airport car park and booked a transfer from the airport to the cruise ship and are not sure whether the transfer is sufficiently easy to locate. This is our first time in Venice and we will be weary from driving from the UK a day before so will probably not have our brightest heads on with regards finding places. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
I have read public washrooms in Venice are scarce. Is this true? What do you do if you have to relieve yourself
is there any Suggestions to enjoy in venice Italy, as you know
Hi, may i know Marco Polo Airport hours? Planning to stay a night at the airport while waiting for my morning flight(6am) to Santorini. Thanks!
We will be traveling by car the second week of September from Venice to Zurich to catch a flight. We have 3 1/2 days and want to see some of the wine country north and west of Venice, the dolomites, and maybe stay in a village in Austria. We have looked at going to Verona, Vincenza, Asiago, Bassano d Grappa, Marostica, Bolzano, and a village in Austria. We really need some advise on what to see and do between Venice and Zurich.
Plug Adptors (Closed Thread)
I am reading that I need an "L" adaptor for my appliances. ex. curling iron/hairdryer. They are both dual voltage. Now when i go on line I am seeing some 2 prong "L" adaptors and some 3 prong "L" adaptors.. Now I am confused as to what I should purchase?
One other question, my hair dryer has two voltage listed, a 120 is what we use here in the US and then it has a place to switch to 250V. I am reading that Italy has 240V so do any of you knowledgeable electricians know is that is ok to use?
Thanks in advance for your help.
Just wondering if anyone could give me an estimate for an average daily food allowance in Venice (dinner+light lunch)? I'm planning a trip and am failing to locate any such up-to-date info elsewhere. I like eating in non-touristy, favoured-by-locals type of places (don't we all) where food is decent and satisfying and have no gastronomic whims/dietary limitations. Needless to say, couldn't care less about "being seen eating in N where X, Y and Z have been spotted" factor. Would be grateful for feedback based on your experiences (or reliable sources you may know of).
