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.


What people said about this port:

"A gondola ride is a must, but certainly over-rated so do n't be disappointed." in 25 reviews.

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.

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.

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.

The ship overnighted in Venice. The first day we did an excursion through Royal Caribbean that included the Doges Palace, a glass blowing demonstration and a walk through of St. Mark's Basilica. The next morning we did a gondola ride and shopping in Venice. We also rode to the top of the tower in St. Mark's Square. Great views of the city and the canals / islands from the top.
