While you're there

Venice is a unique experience for every traveller and certainly a must for lovers. Few people know that Venice is actually an island-city with a train bridge connecting it to mainland Italy. This romantic city actually has no roads at all! To move around there are 150 canals and over 400 bridges! Venice has also beautiful churches, squares and museums. The southern part of the Venice has a certain village feel. Perfect to wander around in the little alleys, get lost and finally reach the Santa Margherita square. Ideal place for its lively bars!

Have a look at the St Mark’s Basilica and the Doge’s Palace. But what makes the city of Venice so special are the labyrinth of medieval alleyways and canals. Wander around freely and get lost even, it is the best way to reach a small square here or discover another beautiful bridge there, all set in a romantic atmosphere. Wander in the Cannaregio area, which is more about atmosphere than major sights. In the Ghetto, one of Venice’s most evocative areas, have a rest in a cafe and watch the kids play outside.

Have a look at fascinating areas of Venice where time seems to have stood still. You can have a tourist guide of the area between Piazza San Marco and the Rialto Bridge, through a labyrinth of little canals, and sites of historic and artistic interest, passing by some special places: Teatro la Fenice, (The Phoenix), one of the most famous opera house in Europe; Scala del Bovolo, an unique spiral staircase with a plethora of arches; Rialto Bridge and its typical shops, one of the architectural icons of Venice.

In Venice, fish is a speciality. Try the delicious minced salmon and lightly seared tuna with finely chopped cucumber. Don’t miss the Baccalà Mantecato which is cooked in olive oil, garlic, and parsley and then creamed in a blender.

Have a look at the Venetian ateliers to discover how and where the most famous traditional products are created. You will discover Venice’s top handcraft tradition: velvets, marbleized paper, books and leather bindings, Carnival masks, gold and silver jewellery, and other wonders.

Customer reviews

  • "Better than flying!"    
    Comfortable, fast and relaxing. No complaints at all.  
  • "Ok"    
    It was a good trip. Seats are a bit small. The seats should be arranged side by side, not opposite to each other.  
  • "Smooth Travelling"    
    No problems at all....would recommend RailEurope always.  
  • "Night train to Paris"    
    Hi, We recently travelled overnight by train from Venice to Paris. The booking process was horrendous and we ended up paying nearly $500AU for each person. I asked for a price for 4 people, accepted the price I was given and when I paid, only 1 ticket for 2 people came. I was then told it was that much again for another 2 people! The room on the train was clean and ready and we were given free drinks on arriving. At 2am we were woken by border patrol banging on the door for room check and search which we did not expect and was quite invasive. The breakfast was ok, but not great, and staff were all very pleasant.l  
  • "Trip from Rome to Venice"    
    The seats were comfortable and the journey pleasant and fast.  
  • "Journey"    
    Journey was alright - reasonably clean carriage and toilets. Service was alright.  
  • "Italian Journey"    
    Took train to Venice instead of flying so we could see more of the countryside. The trip was more relaxing and absorbing then flying although it was a little longer.  
  • "Quick and easy!"    
    We found the access to the trains easy from both our departure and destination. The 3.5 hours went quickly, and liked the ease of walking straight off the train with our luggage, instead of waiting for luggage when flying. The seats were comfortable, but was very close to the person in front of you. All up it was a great trip!  
  • "convenient and easy"    
    the train was so easy, with baggage racks, power points for phone charging and comfortable seats  
  • "Great Journey"    
    We enjoyed our journey from Bologna to Venice,the airconditioning on this train worked better than the Salerno Bologna train.  
  • "Relax and enjoy!"    
    There were 4 of us travelling together and we had seating with a table between us which was very convenient. There was food and drinks available to buy in the carriage behind us so that was very handy as being an early start we were all in need of something. The seats were comfortable and the passing countryside interesting. A great way to travel and we would certainly do it again!  
  • "Good service, pushy passengers"    
    Getting on the coach was difficult with suit cases due to pushy passengers only thinking of themselves. But train and staff were excellent  
  • "Good service"    
    Nice trip, we liked it better than hiring a car. staff very friendly  
  • "Italian Travel"    
    We loved traveling on the fast trains between Venice, Verona, Florence and Rome. Very roomy!.  
  • "leisure travel"    
    comfortable seats, well set out with tables between seats to allow laptop/tablet usage et. Enjoyable trip with ability to view sights as you pass. Great value
