Travel inspiration in Venice and Vienna
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!
Vienna is Austria’s capital and largest city located on the east part of the country. Undoubtedly one of the most charming European capitals, Vienna is one of the world’s leading cities with the best quality of life in the world. The imperial capital is elegant and cosy with beautiful parks and statues of great musicians.
Reviews & ratings Venice - Vienna
Travelled in the first class cabin frpom Venice to Vienna. The staff were efficient and friendly. The cabins were basic and small, with two comfortable beds, and amenities such as a sink with running water and refreshments. Staff woke us with plenty of time in the morning to have breakfast and freshen before departing. Pleasant experience.
The trip was good as overnight trips go. However I would point out (1) it would have been useful to have been told that there was the option of catching the train from Venice S. Lucia as well as from Venice Mestre; (2) the porter looking after our coach had difficulty setting up and resetting the sleeping arrangement in our compartment; and (3) I thought the breakfast was fairly unappetizing though my wife said it was what she expected and it was OK. But the trip did the job of getting us to Vienna overnight and I slept well.
Tickets came on time and as promised. However, did not pay for the insurance, and that was costly. Probably could have got a better deal in Europe, however would have been more of a hassle and no guarantee of obtaining tickets. Just get on the right train, show your ticket, and done. First class seats are spacious and comfortable.
I would highly recommend a train journey from Venice to Vienna. Especially the morning train, as the trip takes about 8 hours, you can sleep for 4 and sunrise is at 4am, so you get spectacular views. You see all of Austria from the south west to north east, including the villages. Once in a lifetime experience. Was in a private room (1 person). Privacy was excellent, breakfast was good, simple Austrian meal. I liked it. The downer was the seats were narrow, and it's not one bed, but two; they just give you a whole room. So was not 100% comfortable, but roughing it a bit was ok. Was it worth the money? The experience yes, but if I were to critique it, no. But there is no better alternative.
