Visiting Venice For Your Italy Vacation

Visiting Venice For Your Italy Vacation



Visiting Venice for your Italy Vacation
If you go on​ a​ vacation in​ Italy it​ is​ almost necessary that you visit Venice .​
Everyone who has ever been to​ Italy has an​ almost classic picture of​ them in​ a​ vaporetti or​ a​ gondola with a​ canal for a​ backdrop .​
This famous Italian city found in​ the​ north is​ also sometimes known as​ the​ city of​ water,​ the​ city of​ bridges and the​ city of​ lights .​
Vaporetti are motorized buses used by Venetians for transportation around the​ city's canals while the​ gondola is​ a​ Venetian boat that is​ now used mostly by tourists and sometimes for weddings or​ funerals .​
The city is​ made up of​ several small islands,​ 118 to​ be exact hence the​ need for water transportation and the​ many bridges.
There are 150 canals and 400 bridges .​
There are also several art galleries and all together these make for an​ exciting experience when you are on​ an​ Italy vacation.
You can get a​ Venice card which allows you free access for seven days into the​ museums and casinos .​
You will also get free waterbus or​ vaporetti services plus a​ free boat trip from the​ airport with this card .​
The airport in​ Venice is​ on​ the​ main land and is​ newly renovated .​
You can go to​ the​ train station from here to​ get to​ other parts of​ Venice .​
If you are driving on​ your Italy vacation you can also get to​ Venice by car but you will need to​ take a​ Ferry boat .​
The least expensive garage in​ Venice is​ the​ Tronchetta garage so you can park there and take a​ public boat or​ hire a​ private water taxi which can be expensive .​
You will be able to​ get one way vaporetti tickets,​ all day passes or​ if​ you are spending more time here for your Italy vacation you could also get a​ 72 hour pass.
If you are in​ Venice you must tour the​ city by a​ gondola .​
There are several tours available .​
For something really different during your Italy vacation in​ Venice and if​ you are really in​ the​ mood for it,​ perhaps you can even take what is​ called a​ serenade tour .​
The tour is​ accompanied by a​ singer (usually a​ baritone) and a​ guitarist or​ someone playing the​ accordion .​
Several of​ these tours leave from piers near hotels in​ Venice .​
Your trip will probably be a​ little under an​ hour and you may see landmarks such as​ the​ Church of​ Santa Maria Formosa and the​ Bridge of​ Sighs.
This bridge received it​ name because it​ is​ said that prisoners would get their last view of​ the​ City of​ Venice from here when on​ their way to​ confinement .​
If you are in​ Venice for your Italy vacation with a​ significant other make sure you take a​ gondola trip that will be going under this bridge under sunset .​
Legend says that lovers will be assured eternal love if​ they kiss under this bridge at​ sunset .​
Venice is​ usually crowded with tourists in​ the​ summer months so if​ you can,​ visit during the​ off season .​
Or you can simply opt for a​ private gondola tour which may be more expensive but will be away from all the​ crowds.
