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.

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.

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.

Get there a day early and stay a day or two following the cruise. Venice is magical and unique and the perfect city to wander around and explore. Just get lost. It is a photographers' dream!!!

You really must stay an extra 1-2 days, ship not in port till 2pm so at most you'll have 5 hrs daylight up to midnight to find way back to ship. Venice is very confusing: we used our phone GPS with pre-loaded while on wifi maps. However staying a 2nd day in hotel gave us a full 10 hrs of time to check out main sights, gondola ride, art gallery & have great meal that evening as well. Our fav spot!
