traveling from venice to val gardena.

by yorkslad

My wife and i along with friends are going for 2-3 weeks staying in Val Gardena on sat 31 July 2010. i think we can get a train from venice or Mestre rail station changing at Verona then to Bolzano with onward travel by bus. Does anyone have train times/prices or better way of getting to Val Gardena?Thanks in anticipation of a response Harry and Steph.

The closest station is Chiusa, but some connections could be from Bolzano or Bressanone. The international (TCV) price from Venice to Bressanone is 28 Euro; but in the fact no one pays THAT price in Italy. If you restrict yourself to the interregional trains you will land up paying a total between 15 and 20 Euro. Trenitalia usually does not gives prices for the tickets on regional trains.

The hard time is how to get from the train station to Val Gardena - I don't know that. It's under 20 km distance.

Thanks for your swift response.Presumably Chiusa is closer to Val Gardena? We could get a taxi from there/

According the Val Gardena web site there are supposed to be busses every hour from the station - but I can't tell more details, I was just in transit through the area.

You can find train times, details and fares for Italian trains here:

http://trenitalia.it/homepage_en.html

I'll try to dig up the bus timetables for you.......

Re: traveling from venice to val gardena.

Trenitalia does give fares for regional trains, by the way. That's the type most people use. Just don't look for yours today......look for the same day of the week next week.

It sometimes doesn't give regional fares cross-border. But you should be ok with trains within Italy.

Venice>Chiusa Klausen (I think this is the right station) is from 13.35 euro (on regional trains), with two changes.

Viaggi Gardena operates a bus transfer service between Venice and Selva Val Gardena.
The bulk of their services are during the winter season, but they do operate all year round. As you wish to travel on a Saturday, you may be able to join a 'consolidated' service with other travellers.
It's well worth contacting them to obtain rates.

Travel Tips for Venice

Maintenance

by solopes

One of the bad points of Venice is the degraded look of most of its buildings. But when you think at the hard conditions faced by those who operate in the maintenance of the facades to the canals, its easy to understand that the work cannot be done as often as the lovers of the city would appreciate.

Piazza San Marco:

The...

by isolina_it

Piazza San Marco:

The present shape of San Marco Square, political, religious and social centre of Venice, emerged during 10 centuries of history related to the Venetian Republic. In spite of the numerous and inevitable trasformations of the buildings there situated, the square as a whole has always kept a coherent character, even though it consists of two large communicating spaces, the Piazza and the Piazzetta, and in addition the large basin of the lagoon, perspectively determined by the profile of San Giorgio and Giudecca isles.
Over this spaces are fixed the several buildings, each accomplishing the task to represent and to house the main political and social structures of Venice. The fist layout of the Square dates back to the origins of the duchy, IX century. The balance of the various pieces, as well as the perfection piercing into the detail of the structures, convey that feeling of peace and magnificence surrounding the “Serenissima”.

A Well-Travelled Guy...

by coceng

This photo was taken by another passer-by at the church in St. Mark's Square.
Venice was my last destination in Italy before went back to Rome & flew home.
After about 1 month travelling, in one of the hottest weather in Italy since the last 200 years I was so tanned ! But to all my friends & family here, I looked so dark !
On this photo, you can see me, sitting cross-legged on the bench smoking a cigarette, next to my bagpack. I looked so jaded & tired. Deep in my heart at that moment, thinking, another great trip was almost over.
I hope the guy ( who said "You Vant Me To Make Your Photo ?" ) would capture me at that moment, it was great ! I love this photo !
Everybody that I showed this photo to said it summed up as 'a well-travelled guy' indeed.
Actually on the photo, I also felt that I should get back to my own room in KL & sleep & sleep & sleep !

Venice in wheelchairs

by Trekki

Hi Suzy,
I hope my reply isn't too late. Venice is prepared for wheelchair travellers, although the bridges make it a bit difficult. First of all, all vaporetto (boats) are equipped with a place for wheelchairs and the assistants on the boat are very much helpful in pulling the chairs on or off board. The boats stop tight at the stations, and for people in wheelchairs the assistants will even pull the boats tighter to the platforms. And believe me, they even chase the tourists who will block the entrance. I found the boat assistants very caring for disabled travellers of all kind.
If you take the boat, you can easily get on and off at the stops and explore many parts of the city. Get a map of the city and you will see that there are many streets without bridges.
San Giovanni e Paolo church for example is accessible by boat at L'Ospedale and then no bridge until the campo. The same is for Madonna dell'Orto church or L'Arsenale and all sights along Canal Grande. The Canal Grande vaporetoo for example stops alternating left and right along the canale, so you can get off close to one of the museums, churches or buildings.
In addition, many bridges along the main attractions are equipped with devices for wheelchairs, like lifts. I have a photo of these devices on my Buranopage:(I only forgot to take photos of the ones in Venice).
The tourist office can lend you keys to these lifts. There are tourist offices at the airport (Marco Polo), at the train station and at Piazza San Marco (one is directly at the vaporetto stop Vallaresso). The offices also have free maps with all these places which are accessible for wheelchairs. And they can also help you to find a wheelchair for rent. Basilica San Marco for example has wheelchairs for their visitors.
Hope this helps - and enjoy this most beautiful city on the planet :-)

Anti-war flags are still flying in Venice.

by Jerelis

When we were in Venice we noticed the many anti-war flags in the city. From the elegant palazzi facing the Canal Grande (Grand Canal) to the many imposing churches, the anti-war flags still flutter, flapping from balconies, tangling with laundry and fading in the sunlight. The flag, striped with the colours of the rainbow and emblazoned with the Italian word for peace -- pace -- is the expression of the solidy anti-war sentiment that showed up in surveys of Italian opinion about the war in Iraq.

We asked Michele about the fact that the war isn't trully a war anymore and the flags are still hanging. She at first joked by saying that 'maybe our people have just forgotten about their flags!', but once she turned serious she had another story. She said that the postwar popularity of the flags could well reflect the Italian "love for ambiguity".

She continued by something we agreed upon, because the war is not completely over and things are far from settled in Iraq. There are also other wars on the planet that are not mentioned in the news and other wars might come -> So why put it away?
