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.

Stay away from the crowds. Go to a deli, get some meat, cheese, wine and sit along one of the canals to watch the crowd and not be part of it.

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.

OMG. Venice. So much to do and see. We didn't do excursion. Very expensive on the water front but its a once in a lifetime memory. Took gondola ride. About 80 Euro for half hour - truly worth it. Love Venice

Loved Venice immensely! Will definitely return here. Did not do excursions as we arrived 2 days prior to sailing. Just explored and enjoyed the city on our own!!

A wonderful city, full of lots of sites to visit, but, like all the ports of call on this cruise, it was exceptionally busy. No need for an excursion, as most of the sites are in walking distance if you are relatively fit, and if not, the Vaporetta water buses service all the major places to visit.

Of course Venice is excellent. It's unique. We stayed several days before embarkation and enjoyed the chance to get lost in areas we hadn't visited before. Sailing out of Venice is an amazing experience, simply not like anyplace else.

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.
