Beauty so Intense, you’ll get a heart sinking feeling

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!

About Italy

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.

    Night train to Paris | Christine h. | 2015/10/21
    "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 "

    Quick and easy! | Tahni b. | 2015/09/13
    "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! "
