Will I be able to get from LIDO to the cruise liner terminal by direct ferry on my visit in May.

Re: LEN115

Yes - Here are some route maps.

I know we passed the boarding stop when we did a trio from St Giorgio up around the docks and then down the Grand Canal to St Marks.

Check the Vaporetto number with the hotel but there is a route for sure.

Vaporetto no 62 will take you from Lido to San Basilio(the cruise terminal)
The night service (N) also operates this route.

Travel Tips for Venice

the city .....ment for taking pictures!

by Anita_Porec

not enough time or imagination to capture the actual feeling that city provokes in someone who enjoys architecture and taking pictures!\\..... absolutely breathtaking.......AND much cleaner now than it was a few years ago....

Rialto Bridge

by Goner

Rialto Bridge is in the commercial and one of the oldest and busiest areas of Venice. The bridge was completed in 1588 and became the only way of crossing the Grand Canal until the Academia Bridge was built in 1854. The three-lane bridge has shops in the center lane where you can buy linens, Murano glass and other tourist items. You actually use up and down stairs to traverse the bridge. It’s a great spot to take your photos of the Grand Canal and at night it’s a great spot to see the twinkling lights of the city.

Venice Canals

by CandS

Unfortunately I didn't write down the location of the canals that we took photos of...but this dark canal caught my eye for some reason... :) The canals make fantastic photos...make sure you take lots of film or memory cards! :)

Festa del Redentore | Festival of the Redeemer (V)

by Zvrlj

"Festa del Redentore – Festival of the Redeemer is annual celebration of the end of the plague that struck a large part of Europe in the 16th century, causing more than 50000 deaths in Venice. In 1576 Doge Alvise Mocenigo invoked the end of the epidemic and the salvation of the city by constructing a votive temple 'which successors will go and visit, in perpetual memory of the grace received'. The first stone of the new shrine was laid in May 1577, and on the third Sunday in July of the same year Doge Sebastiano Venier proclaimed Venice free of contagion and asked Andrea Paladio to design the church which was completed in 1593. Meanwhile a provisional altar was set up and a bridge composed of 80 galleys side by side was put together, connecting Zattere with Redentore church quayside so that the procession led by the Doge could reach the church for solemn celebrations.

Nowadays Venetians celebrate by having traditional food in boats in St Mark's basin while they wait for the firework display to begin. When it finishes, the boats wend their way towards Lido to wait for sunrise."

Festa del Redentore is held on the third Saturday and Sunday in July. During Redentore night 333 m long pontoon bridge of barges connects Guidecca and Veice.

In the summer of 2007 Festa del Redentore came to us as a surprise. Being the budget travelers, we use to sleep in Lido di Jesolo (and spend 12-13 hours a day in Venice); a receptionist of our hotel have told us about the Festival and that we should not miss it (thank him), so we "have taken a risk" to spend the whole night in Venice, although we have had to leave the hotel room early in the morning (it turned to be approximately 20 minutes after we have arrived from the Festival). But our decision was the wright one, and our only (so far) Festa del Redentore is something we'll never forget!

Pack light....

by mapakettle

Use a pack sack, cobble stones make it difficult to navigate with luggage on wheels. Layer your clothing, there are many areas where sunshine does not penetrate in Venice, so on the canal you are warm, in the interior you may find discomfort.

Bring your old, comfortable runners, they are certainly 'acceptable' in Venice, and throughout Italy. Everything you may require is readily available. (except ADVIL) Bank machines are plentiful, so access cash only when needed. You will get a better hotel rate, and prices on goods if you offer to pay cash. Often merchants will add a surcharge if you present credit card for payment.
