Venice or Rome for New Year's?

by wayfinder45

Any thoughts on whether it would be better to spend New Year's Eve in Venice or Rome? I'm really torn. I'm leaning towards Venice, but would love to hear from others who have experienced one or both celebrations! I'll have two teenaged girls in tow as well as a younger child.

I haven't been to Rome yet, but since you'll have kids with you, if the rest of your trip will be in Rome (guessing from your other post) maybe Venice will be a fun change? It's not very nightlife heavy, but with kids it's not like that will be your main goal. And it's gorgeous.

Hi, although I haven't been to Venice at New Years Eve (I usually visit at Christmas, which I thoroughly enjoy - less crowded, and easier to get around, with a different atmosphere from the summer months)

I understand the main celebrations take place in Piazza San Marco.

For the past two years, the theme has been Love, with participants being encouraged to join in an attempt for 'The Worlds largest collective kiss'! I'm guessing they'll continue the theme for Dec 31st 2010.

Not sure how you or the teenage girls would feel about this!

Venice's first 'kiss-in', in 2008, won the city an international prize for the best New Year's event.

There will be music and spectacular firework displays over the city and lagoon too.
Have A Great trip, wherever you decide to go!

Since you will bring a younger child, I'd say Venice. They love the city with its canals everywhere. Suddenly someone starts singing from a gondola underneath them, police chase people by boat...

Travel Tips for Venice

Giacomo Casanova

by traveloturc

The Venetians were also well known for their love of beautiful women and love affairs. Giacomo Casanova became one of the most legendary lovers of Venetian origin but other lesser known lovers soon filled the State orphanages with their children. Many of these love affairs had their start in the caffes of St.Mark's Square so in 1767 the government prohibited women from frequenting caffes. However, Casanova couldn't resist the charms of the women who strolled about the Square and under the porticos of the Procuratie. He was placed in "Piombi", the prison, by State Investigators because of his lascivious and anti-religious habits. Casanova attempted to escape twice. The first time, just before finishing a hole in the floor he was moved to another cell. However it was better that he didn't finish digging as that hole would have dropped him directly in front of the Inquisitors (again!) in the room below. The second attempt succeeded and he made his way out of the Palace and walked directly down the Golden Staircase and out the main entrance! The warders saw him leaving but they thought he was a politician and didn't stop him. Before taking the Gondola to leave the city, he couldn't resist one last stroll through the Procuratie where he bid his friends goodbye and had one last cup of coffee in his beloved Piazza San Marco. Casanova reached Paris where lived for 20 years before he was pardoned and allowed to return to his beloved Venice.

I can handle Venice being comical

No need to leave your SOH behind just because you are in perhaps the most beautiful city in the world.
My very first afternoon in Venice I threw open the shutters in my room which looked out onto a canal and lay on the bed and read a book by Thurber. Very funny guy, Thurber is.

We were having lunch at a restaurant close to the Barefoot Bridge on the Grand Canal - sitting outdoors on the very lip of the canal - and behind me a mobile phone rang and the guy answered it - and he had one of those mechanical voices like Stephen Hawking or someone who has had their larynx removed - and he kept saying (IN DEEP MECHANICAL TONES) "VENICE IS VERY ROMANTICA. "
I was freaking out because ever since that gross gross cult brit show League Of Gentlemen (which has a very scarey guy with a deep voice) I can't stand those deep voices.

If anyone says to me in deep tones "YOU IS MY WOMAN NOW" I completely freak.

So "VENICE IS VERY ROMANTICA" nearly had me jumping in the Grand Canal. The daughter tried to keep a straight face at my terror because she was facing the guy.

Pic is of daughter trying to restrain her mirth.

Once you pop, yoiu cannot stop ;-)

Well, this is a bit of a morbide detail of one of the palazzo s along Canal Grande but I just love it.....it s just a pity I could not find more information about it,, might as well be a commemarative stone...

History

by sim1


There are beautiful old houses and history where ever you look! I think this is a part of Venice that I really loved. No book to help me what year or century a building was build, why and by whom. But looking at it would just tell me its own little part of history. I could dream of who lived here, what they used to do for a living, and maybe dream a little bit of having a house like this myself in Venice ;-)

The church at the Piazza San...

by lucyguajardo

The church at the Piazza San Marcos named St. Mark's church is one of the most beautiful of the world but they have a lot of security inside and don't let you take video nor pictures, so don't even try it if you don't want to have some one punish you.

Inside St. Mark's church you have to be quite, too.
