Can you pick up both rolling venice card and tranport tickets purchased on line at airport?

by 2bounce2

If you have to pick up the rolling venice card in person at the airport, can you also pick up tickets you purchased on line in advance vai veniceconected? How much is the discount if arriving in Venice July 17 a Thursday in summer...is that top season or mid season? Can you pay by debit or credit card at the airport? If at the airport, besides the train station and ferry stops you mentioned, is it the same prices of 4euros for rolling venice card which entitles youth to purchase the 72 hour transport card for then 18 euros? and adults over the age of 30 and youths under the age of 14 to purchase these 72 hour transport cards for 33 euros both at the airport all together as well as at the locations in your post? If one were planning days July 17-July 20 with a trip airport, venice island, Lido,train station in that time frame, would the 72 hour pass pay for itself? Can one get the Intero San Marco Plus card at the arrivals desk at the airport also for the same price as at San Marco of around 13 euros? Is the belltower covered with the rolling venice card as a discount or free and what is the deal for the Ducal Palace free or discounted and with what? What is the regular price for the Ducal Palace?Ca'D'oro? Shuttle bus cheepest from airport normally without any passes?

July is high season.

You cannot use passes on the bus to/from Venice Marco Polo, as far as I know. Fare is 3 euro. Timetables and info in English here:

http://www.atvo.it/index.php?lang=en&area=23&menuid=23

Venice itself is very compact and very walkable (it only takes an hour to cross on foot). I did not use the vaporetti (water-buses) at all when I visited. The pass may not be worthwhile unless you intend to use the vaporetti several times (i.e. to visit more than just Lido). Vaporetti fares and timetables in English here:

Look at this site and use the links on the left (FAQs etc) to answer the questions relating to the Rolling Venice card:

http://www.hellovenezia.com/jsp/en/venicecardrolling/index.jsp

and to answer the questions about entrance fees to the Palazzo Ducale etc and the San Marco Plus card:

http://www.museiciviciveneziani.it/frame.asp?sezione=biglietti

Both are in English and give full details.

I do not know whether you can pick up tickets you ordered via veniceconnected at their airport desk. Check through the FAQs and info on their site for details:

http://www.veniceconnected.com/faq-venice-connected

Under 'culture' you will see what is included. I suggest you use the 'contact us' link to ensure that your particular credit or debit card will be accepted.

Travel Tips for Venice

What to watch and listen for when in Venice

by lonestar_philomath

Observing the architecture. The last night while in Venice, I took a walk and notice in Plaza San Marco workers were installing platforms. Not know ing any better I continued to my hotel and fell asleep. The following morning while eating breakfast, I heard blow horns sounding and the staff informed me that the horns were for high water. I can still remember rolling up my pants legs that morning and walking diaginally across Plaza San Marco in cold water to my mid-calf (my calves were so big I could not get my pants legs any further up).

Be prepared when you are in Venice and you see wooden platforms being installed and hear sirens the following day!

Self-Catering

by hawkhead

Venice is an horrendously expensive city and one way to cut down on the cost is to self-cater. You can rent an apartment from 3 days to up to six months. The cost is less than half the price of a middle-priced hotel. There are quite a few "supermarkets" (more like grocery stores) dotted around the city. The best are the Billa ones, they are open during lunch and on Sundays and can be found at:

1491 Dorsoduro

2065 San Polo

Nuova Strada at Ponte Iva
Canareggio 3660 - this is the biggest and best one.

Also:

Supermarcati Punto
3017 Dorsoduro @ Campo Santa Margherita

Campanile di San Marco

by Aggeliki

It's the tallest belltower in Venice. From the top you can see the whole lagoon.
Even though the tower was erected at the beginning of the 20th century, it is an exact replica of the 15th-century bell tower. In 1609, Galileo Galilei exhibited his telescope here, and during the carnival, the bell tower used to serve as a stage for the tight rope-walkers who entertained the doge with their acrobatics.

The inside of the Rialto Bridge

by sim1


Not the usual way to see the Rialto Bridge. Normally you see the outside of the bridge, but this is the inside. The bridge has three walkways: two along the outer balustrades, and a wider central walkway leading between two rows of small shops, which you see here on the photo. This is a busy area of Venice, lots of tourist shops, restaurants and of course.... tourists :-))

Pigeon at San Marcos

by diageva

A local custom is to give food to the pigeons at San Marcos Square.

I don't like pigeons :) they are very dirty animals ... but I do see nice to see them in some places. Is great to see the children feeding these birds.

At the same square you will find little mobile stores to by food for the pigeons for 1 euro (August 2004)
