Discounts for teenagers

by royo

Going to Venice in July (must be mad)with family. Mum and Dad will be getting a seven day travel card with museum pass but not sure if it's best for our two daughters 17 and 14 years. What is the cheapest option for teenagers?

Many thanks

www.italyheaven.co.uk is an excellent site, with lots of information. It's debatable whether the 7 day travel card is actually worth the expense and has been the subject of much discussion on VT- Venice is extremely walkable. Indeed, it benefits from being walked, rather than approaching each place of interest by water. We were there for five weeks in January/February and took the vaporetto only twice. The museum pass you can buy from a museum when you arrive. Btw, the Chorus Pass is excellent value - €9 for sixteen churches and as each church costs €3 to visit, you can easily cover that original cost. Buy the pass at any participating church.

I agree.

Venice is much, much smaller than one imagines (it only takes around an hour to cross the whole city on foot) and walking it is an essential part of the experience, imo.

You might find it better value to just buy a day pass for the vaporetti if you wanted to visit the islands.


give you vaporetto fares/timetables in English. Your daughters would be eligible for the 3-day youth card (details on the link above).

The Chorus Pass is well worth buying. http://www.chorusvenezia.org/ You can by it from the first of its churches you visit.

Travel Tips for Venice

Venice Map

by davequ

The way Venice looks on the dark, quiet, beautiful side streets.

My favorite area to stay in is the quieter Dorsoduro area that looks like the "tail" at the bottom of the map.
(where it says "Guggenheim Collection") Walking late at night on the dark "spooky" side streets trying to get lost.

Piazza San Marco


Piazza San Marco
One of the most famous squares in the world, Piazza San Marco hosts flocks of pigeons and touriests all day long. In the high season, both compete for space. :-)

Great fun to feed pigeons there.

See San Giorgio Maggiore

by Goner

This floating apparition is actually a small island where you will find an church and monastery completed in 1580 and considered one of Andrea Palladio's greatest architectural achievements. There are two fine paintings there, "The Last Supper" and "The Gathering of the Manna". The monastery is now a cultural center dedicated to international exhibitions.
There is a great view from the campanile of the city and lagoon.

When you've been walking in the warm temperatures and need something to quench your thirst, instead of a Coke, which you can get a home anywhere, get a limonata. This is an Italian lemon soda which is made by a few different manufatucturers including San Pellegrino, the same folks who make the orange soda, arranciata. Limonata is like lemonade with soda water...very refreshing on a warm day!

taking with you to Venice

by marcwensma

Wherever you go: always travel light.
When flying I only take hand luggage. If it is for a weekend or 4 weeks, doesn't matter. For Venice take good walking shoes with you. Only a toothbrush. The rest you can buy when you are there in a nice little supermarket and leave the shampoo in your room for the next guest. That you will have to take with you. When you want to spend some time at the Lido in summer swimming stuff would be nice. Always take a few photographs or cards from your hometown with you to give away to people you meet.
