      is there cream or half and half available to use in your coffee?

      by sheriK9 Online Now Oct 4, 2016 at 10:21 AM

      please forgive my total ignorance. i use cream or half and half (half cream half skim milk) in my coffee and just cannot drink it without it. no milk for me. only cream. spoiled little american that i am. can you tell me if cream is even available for use in coffee in venice? i had such a horrible time in copenhagen with the no cream was available and they looked at me like i had 8 heads. the hotel finally relinquished some cream for me after my repeated whining. (lol...just like an american, no?) please help me prepare for what i might find. i do drink tea with milk and would switch to that instead. or perhaps i need to get used to drinking some cappucino or other beverages you all might suggest. thanking you in advance.

      Best time (season, month)

      by roamer61 Online Now Aug 31, 2016 at 4:58 AM

      I have begun exploring the prospect for a future trip. But I've seen many pictures of St. Marks Square totally crammed with tourists. And, I am also aware of the high water, flooding that occurs in the winter. So, what are the best times to visit Venice to contend with fewer crowds and not worry about flooding?

      Renting a car from Venice

      by theflickguy Online Now Jun 5, 2016 at 3:14 PM

      We will be picking up our rental car from Hertz at Piazzale Roma and looking for anyone who has this kind of experience. We are staying near the Santa Lucia station and our plan is to walk to the PR, so we have a couple of questions: 

      • Is this an easy enough walk to navigate with luggage?
      • Does it require finding the car in the parking garage or do they generally bring it to street level for you?

      Many thanks!

    • Best time for designer shopping in Italy?

      by CallumN Online Now May 25, 2016 at 12:02 AM

      I work for a travel agency based in the Philippines and we're currently looking to set up an Italy tour which would be heavily centered around designer shopping trips at places like: The Mall, Prada Spa, Barberino Designer outlet vilage and Noventa di Piave.

      We were looking to make tours in August, September & October but from what I've seen online, it doesn't seem like the best sales will be on then.

      Our customers will be looking to buy bags and shoes mainly, but clothes also.

      Can anyone with knowledge if this help me out?

      Big thanks!

      We got pick-pocketed in Venice, Who else?

      by samitbabu Online Now Dec 15, 2015 at 10:13 AM

      My wife got pickpocketed in the waterbus as we were approaching Palazia Roma.

      It was the last hour of our vacation before we went on our way to the airport.

      The time was a busy business hour, around 3 in the afternoon.

      The purse was lifted out of the handbag and we lost around 800 USD.

      We contacted the police outpost just outside the AcTV counter - nect to th Bus stop. But hardly any support from the Police.


      How many else have been ? Either at Venice or in Italy ?

      We are cruising from Venice next week and want to join Mama Isa's cooking class in Padua before we cruise...we are staying near San Marco and have been looking into the rail system to get us to Padua. Has anyone ever done such an excursion and is it easy to get to? Rail Europe from Venezia Santa Lucia to Padua seems to be pretty easy but don't want to make commitment to either rail or Mama Isa without knowing for sure as it is a $$$ excursion. Any information suggestions would be really helpful and I would be ever so grateful!! Thank you:)

    • Vaporetto tickets

      by diplomats Online Now Oct 5, 2015 at 8:53 AM

      I understand from the Venice website that there is a special arrangement for tickets on the Vaporetto and other public water transit for persons with disability, both a discounted per ride ticket and free transit for the person accompanying the disabled person. But details are scarce. Does disability mean a wheelchair, or is a person using a Walker (frame) also eligible. What is the cost of the "Discounted" ticket and is it correct that one is needed for each segment of a trip? Any other information about persons in wheelchairs using the Vaporetto and other public water transit are welcome.

      Second question. Can anyone decipher the water taxi chart? For example, if 8 people, of whom 2 are disabled, want to take a water taxi from Burano to Piazzalle Roma, what would be the tariff? I can usually read fare sheets but am buffaloed by the one for the water taxi association.

      Thanks for any help.
