Things to do on July 20th

by yomama604

Hi, we are visiting Venice from July 17th departing July 20th. It's me, my wife and our two sons age 15 and 13. We are staying at the Molino Stucky Suites on Giudecca. Our dilemma is that check-out on July 20th is at 11AM and our train to Germany does not leave until 11:30PM.

Any suggestions for how to best make use of the time. Should we check our bags at Santa Lucia train station and then look for activities in the area. Any recommendations.

Thanks in advance,
Elia

Yes, I think that would be a good idea.

Venice greatly repays idle wandering.

Get yourselves checked-out and over to the main island, go to SML and leave your bags. then wander the Dorsodouro area (to the left of SML as you face it) or the Canareggio area (to your right).

Both areas are less tourist-visited, and both have much to offer in the way of canals, people, churches (do buy Chorus passes whilst you are in Venice), architecture, places to eat and so on and so forth.

If you plan to leave your luggage at Santa Lucia, bare it in mind that there are no lockers. They have a "manual" storage room and the price is for the item that you give in no matter how big it is. (Because we usually have a lot of small items, so had a problem making them less but bigger:)
Though our practice is that we leave our luggage there and relax in the city, it's very convenient. You do not have to queue to take it back.

Left luggage at SML:

Open every day 0600 to 2400

4,00 euro per item for the first 5 hours then
0,60 per item for the 6th - 12th hour and
0,20 per item for each successive 12 hours.

Many hotels will let you leave your luggage till you are leaving town, however, if your hotel is not suitably located for getting to the station, then yes, the left luggage facility at Santa Lucia would be your best bet. You could fill in quite a few hours with a trip to Padova, then come back and have a leisurely dinner before heading off to Germany.

Scaffolding

by grandmaR

Everywhere you look in Venice you see scaffolding. There seems to be continuous repairs going on. Some of the scaffolding is covered with fabric - sometimes a conservative white like what is around the customs house, and sometimes construction orange (photo 3). Some of the scaffolding is new and some is old. Some construction projects have been going on for some time, and some even appear abandoned.

Because of my former job as a health and safety inspector, I tend to take photos of scaffolding. So here are some photos of scaffolding in Venice

Close and far views around St. Marks

by grandmaR

The beautiful Clock Tower in St. Mark's square is possibly the second most well known clock in the world; after "Big Ben". It was built in 1499. It was designed by Mauro Codussi, and decorated with an astronomic clock that shows the hour, the moon phases and zodiac signs.

At the top of the tower, once an hour the bronze statues of two huge shepherds or moors strike the bell. The figures are sometimes referred to as Moors because of the dark color of the bronze patina.

At Epiphany and the Ascension (just twice a year) the procession of the statues of the three Kings led by an angel appears. The Magi's carousel; the three Kings, preceded by an Angel blowing a trumpet, passed in front of the gilded bronze Madonna with Child. Originally, the trumpet actually emitted a sound.

In the 1979 film Moonraker, James Bond is seen throwing Chang (the bad guy) through the glass face of the famous St. Mark's clock and down into a piano below, thus disrupting an opera performance. The real clock was obviously not used. For one thing, face of the real clock consists of revolving metal disks so a glass-fronted studio-based 'clock stunt double' was used.

The best way to get around

by sim1



And the best way to get around in Venice yourself is taking the 'Vaporetto'. That is similar to the normal bus, but now over water. Buy a dayticket and you can move around anywhere you like. It is also a great way to do some relaxing sightseeing, hahaha, after walking a few hours it is nice to sit down, and just let the scenery flow by. And the Grand Canal with the Palazzos is a must see!

Ice Anyone??

by msbrandysue

So, if you're from the United States you're used to ice filling your cup, then liquid being added. Not the case in Venice...

Ice is rare. And when it's 90 degrees in June-August that can be a problem when looking for some cool refreshments.

However, you can get ice at some places upon request. There was a place on the corner of St. Mark's Basilica that provided up with some ice which was like heaven. Just don't be afraid to ask. If you're in Venice you're going to be paying a pretty penny for liquid so you might as well get what you want.

Just be prepared....
