Regata Storica 2009

by Samushka

Me and wife arriving in Venice on Sunday, September 6th in the morning. This is the Sunday of Regata Storica 2009. My concern is possible dificalties to get from the airport to Hotel Palazzo SchiavoniADDRESS: Castello 3288 - Fondamenta dei FurlaniCITY: Venezia.
Can some members advise on the issue and what is the best way to get to hotel with luggages on hands on this busy day.

If you look up my TIP for using the ferry from the Airport : ALILAGUNA - then I reckon you could be fine using it. Obviously with too much luggage you may have some difficulties.

You will just need to choose the best point of arrival - maybe on the outward lagoon side facing the Murano island and airport side. You could study the ALILAGUNA map and schedule and look at Google Map to see the convenience ?

of course you can also use a private water taxi from the airport direct to your hotel ?

At your hotel web site they provide some help:

http://www.palazzoschiavoni.com/pdf/map_en.pdf

They suggest that if you take the ALILAGUNA ferry from the airport then you can get off at the ARSENALE ferry stop, and then show on the map provided the SAN ZACCARIA stop.
Both would be good but will entail moving luggage into the ferry - you store it just inside the entry deck and take a seat - and of course a walk from the ferry stop to the hotel. Really depends on your idea of being able to handle your luggage.
Otherwise pay for a private water taxi to take you from the airport to the hotel's canal. Check when you arrive at the airport through the doors for the ticket office for the Alilaguna or the water taxis. The water taxis may cost you around €85 I think, whereas getting the Alilaguna is going to be €13 each = €26. Their Blue Line goes via the Lido and stops at San Zaccaria if you tell the skipper, and the RED line goes to both ARSENALE and SAN ZACCARIA if you tell the skipper.
You could get off earlier on the Murano side of the city such as at Ospedale but looking at the map it seems that you would probably enjoy the boat ride over to the lido and back towards the city. May take about one hour. Whereas using a water taxi could take 20 minutes give or take.

Maybe someone else will come up with a better plan !

Getting from the airport shouldn't be the problem. The problem would more likely be on the Grand Canal which is closed for "usual traffic" for the Regatta. But this will also depend on you time of arrival. It may not be so difficult later in the day. God bless you if you can afford water taxis. If you look on veniceforvisitors.com you may find info on the closing time of Grand Canal. I haven't looked.

I have to reverse myself on the info I gave you previously. As it is raining and not a "beach day" today, I looked up a little more about the Regatta. I found that it starts in the afternoon. So your morning arrival might get you to your hotel before "traffic" is stopped. The race starts at the public gardens in Castello which is near your destination. I would suggest that you might want to email your hotel and gets more details re the starting time and their suggestions for the best way to get there.

Travel Tips for Venice

The names of the calli, campi and campielli

by Polly74

The Venetian Calli have unusual names that are usually either taken from the city's history or from an event that took place right on the very spot, or from the jobs of the people who lived in that lane or square. The names of the streets are written on small white squares that are placed on the outside of the buildings and that are called "nizioleti" (tissues).

Palaces along the Grand Canal

by mrclay2000

The Grand Canal is clearly the center of life in this remarkable city. Hotels and palaces still line its waterfront. Some of the changes that Venice has undergone through the centuries might be observed by the varying arches in windows and doorways, reflecting Byzantine influences and other styles from the Levant.

~ Venice Floods ~

by Carnation

You will notice, in the city, piles of metal trestles and planks of wood. They are erected as walking platforms during the seasonal high tides which flood many parts of Venice at regular and irregular intervals. Piazza San Marco is flooded before other areas because under it still runs the Canale Botario which was interred when the Basilica Di San Marco and the Palazzo Ducale were built. When these platforms are not officially needed they are put to other uses, such as picnic tables for daytrippers and as stalls by unlicenced street vendors.

If you should hear 'air-raid' type sirens, then this means they are warning you that the high tide is expected to reach over 1.10 meters above the average sea level, therefore flooding some parts of Venice.

The truth about Venice

by MiniMaxi

What I'm saying now can be very unpopular among Venetian business holders, but I feel like I have to correct all other VT suggestions that have appeared so far on this topic: tipping in Venice is NOT a local custom (!)
The restaurant bills can include some surcharges (like the "coperto", which is the price you pay for the service handling), which should anyway by law be clearly written on the menu. But there's no tip, unlike the US or other parts of the world!
So, this is definitely a myth, and in fact you'll notice it's all non-local people who claim that there's this "local custom" to tip 10-15-20% whatever. The true local custom is, you don't tip, unless of course you feel so thoroughly satisfied you exceptionally want to, and in any case it's few euros, not a 10 or more percent (!). Hope this helps, fellow travelers.

Mosaics

by sim1


A closer look at one of the mosaics, isn't it beautiful! These mosaics have given the basilica the name of Chiesa d'Oro, or the Church of Gold. The light shines through small windows in the domes which reflects off their gilded surfaces, and the walls shine up with a golden light.
