Elegant, inimitable, exciting and romantic: this is Venice, the gem on any tour of Italy where churches, palazzi, ancient bridges, monuments and piazzas confirm its artistic and cultural vitality. Known as one of the most romantic cities in the world, Venice, the capital of the Veneto region is the symbol of priceless art, spectacular scenery and impressive building structure. Explore every single street to stay longer in this fairytale city and don’t miss the opportunity to take a special photo of the fuchsia-pink sunset that has made centuries of artists mad. Let’s find out more about this gorgeous city!
First, how can you get here?
You should know that Venice has an airport (Marco Polo Airport), but it’s not on the islands, it’s on the mainland. To get from the mainland airport to the Venetian islands, you must take a water bus. For only 13 Euros, you can get a one-way ticket from the airport to the islands. Also, you have two bus options to get to/from the airport – the ACTV buses and the ATVO buses. The most expensive option is to take a water taxi, but if you’re traveling with a group of friends you will split the cost.
When is the best time to visit Venice?
Venice experiences very high humidity, with hot weather in July and August. Temperatures during summer usually range between 30°C to 33°C, dropping in winter to 0°C to 3°C. Due to its location on the Adriatic coast, Venice often experiences thunderstorms and rain showers which, particularly in spring and autumn, tend to cause flooding. Known as the ‘acqua alta’, it is best to pack waterproof shoes or boots to avoid a soaking.
April to October is usually the busiest time in Venice, though it is a popular destination all year round. Christmas, Easter, the Carnival (in February) and the Venice International Film Festival (in August) are also busy periods. Winter is, perhaps, the best time to travel to avoid crowds and find better rates on accommodation.
