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.

On the day that you arrive in Venice, you can take the People Mover to get where you want to go instead of booking transportation through Royal Caribbean. The People Mover is located near where the ship docks.

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!!!

Don't be fooled - you are not in Venice for 2 days. You are in Venice the day you embark and then leave at 1am THAT NIGHT! They make you think you leave at 1am the following evening, but that is incorrect. Arrive to Venice a day or so before your trip so you can explore it on your own. It's an incredible city - no need to book an excursion with the cruise ship.
