About Venice, Italy

Venice floats at the northern end of the Adriatic like a painting come to life. The vast wealth accumulated in the renaissance funded the palaces, churches, and squares for which the city is still known today.

Very picturesque. A photographer's dream. No need for shore excursion at this port. Walk 15 mins to the public water taxis at Piazzale Roma from the ship and take Vaporetto #1 to St. Marks Square. A 20 euro day pass allows you to jump on and off Vaporettos all day.

if you possibly get time, St.Marks Basilica worth the queue to get in, go early or pre-book if you can.

We had been there before so skipped the main sights of Doge's Palace, St Mark's Basilica. We took the back streets guided walking tour which was great. Venice was very, very crowded--difficult to walk and it got pretty warm in the afternoon. Would never want to go there in the summer.

We stayed at a small hotel - Hotel Antiche Figure in a quieter (Santa Croce) section of Venice. The hotel location and staff were superb! Buffet breakfast outside on their waterfront terrace was so scenic. Water taxis drop off/pick up right at the door and gondolas are right outside the hotel doors as well. We recommend an evening gondola ride when the canals are peaceful.

Watch out for scam artists outside the train station. It's a very long walk to get to the port, and people with carts will grab your bags and start running off to the so- called 'people- mover' that takes you part of the way. Then they want 10 euros per bag.
