From Florence to Venice

by RalphRT

My wife and I are planning to go from Florence to Venice. Would it be best to do this via auto or train? We have never been in Italy before. Thanks for your advice.

I took the train and it was quick, easy, and you can sit back and enjoy the Tuscan scenery more on the train. If you've never been to Italy before, I would take the train. Driving in another country is always a little nerve-wracking the first time and considering the costs of renting a car and buying petrol vs. the cost of the train, the train would be cheaper. Italy has a terrific rail system.

unlike your post on assisi, this one is easy - train, train, train. the driving is difficult, the parking inconvenient. the train takes you where you want to go quickly and easily.

It makes sense by car ONLY if you plan on stopping at several places on the way...otherwise, when travelling from city center to city center, go by train...

Another vote for the train. It's fast, it's cheap and you won't have to pay for parking in Venice.

I took the train and had an enjoyable and relaxing time. The scenery was nice too.

I lived in Italy for many years. Train is the only way to go. It is about 75 Dollars for both of you to travel to Venice from FLorence. It takes about 2.5 hours. I am doing it myself again in March.

Travel Tips for Venice

The whole city is a delight...

by hirundinella

The whole city is a delight that it is difficult to select highlights. Just wander around and soak up the unique atmosphere. Don't leave without visiting St Mark's Basilica. This building is stunning from the outside but the inside is breathtaking. Mosaics cover the floor and ceilings...unmissable.
Return outside, cross the square and take the lift to the top of the Campinile where the view is just stunning. In one direction you look down on terracotta rooftops. Turn around for a bird's eye of the square and the crowds milling outside the cathedral. Turn again and take in the view across the lagoon to the islands beyond. I was lucky enough to be in Venice for the last day of one of the famous carnivals. The crowds are even more dense than in the height of the summer but the atmosphere is electric. Costumed performers strut through the streets, pausing to strike a pose for the photographers before moving on. This is an unforgetable experience.

Overview over Venice.Venice is situated in the Laguna Veneta at the Adriatic sea The city stretches over 120 islands, connected by more than 400 bridges. Mestre and Marghera are Venice's suburban towns on the nearby mainland.

Castello Reflections

by sandysmith

The whole area of Castello was a favourite place to wander around. Its somewhat a neglected area of Venice but its peaceful, residential air with its scenes of laundry hanging across the canals added to its charm. We have spent many a pleasant hour just wandering around here.

The Historical Regatta

by viddra

Nobody can say for sure when and why the 1st regatta was held, but in the 13th and 14th centuries the race had become customary.

As is still the case today (4 September), the race was preceded by a procession of all kinds of boats, all decked out and bearing symbolic images. After the parade, the races began. Originally the boats were divided into categories according to the number of rowers (once even 20 or 50), but now there are only 2 per boat.

The route to be covered in the least possible time goes from the Motta to Castello and Santa Chiara on the Grand Canal and back to the Ca' Foscari where a floating pavilion marks the finish line.

The winning team's awarded with a banner while a piglet's jokingly 'conferred' on the loser.

Packing List

by josie13

Definitely don't take any heavy luggage if you're staying in Venice. With all the cobbled streets, staired bridges and canals, it's not always so easy to get to and from your hotel, especially if you're unsure of its exact location. As always, comfortable walking shoes are a must. With so much water around it's easy to slip if your wearing high heels.

If Venice happens to be flooded ( I didn't get to see this sight ) definitely take some wellington boots. Every corner you turn in Venice is worth a picture so take loads and loads of film with you especially since the price is higher than other places.
