We arrived on the night train Thello to the station of Venice Santa Lucia from Paris. The station is located in front of the Grand Canal. We took a public transport boat that left us in front of the wooden bridge of the Academy (Ponte della Accademia). Just before arriving we went through the Rialto bridge, the most famous in Venice. Luckily the hotel was very close.

It is convenient to take a GPS to not get lost, or in any case download some application for smarphone as Maps.me or directly use Google Maps. It is worth walking and getting lost in those narrow streets with cords and bridges that cut all the time. The city itself is quite an attraction.

Gondola Trip - Traghetto

Traveling in gondola is very expensive. US$ 100 or more. Also the channels are jammed with gondolas and we have to wait. But there is a very cheap alternative. There is a public gondola service called Traghetto, which crosses passengers from one bank to another of the Grand Canal. the price is approximately four Euros,  paid in euros (yes, read well). The stops are:

 

  • San Marcuola – Fóndaco dei Turchi (near the Museo di Storia Naturale) [Mon–Sat 9am–12:30pm; to 1pm in winter]
  • Santa Sofia – Rialto Pescaria (Rialto Market) [Mon-Sat 7:30am–8pm; Sun 8:45am–7pm]

Venice is exceeded by tourists. They arrive by thousands every day and not everyone knows how to behave. If you travel to Venice we recommend you follow these tips to avoid inconveniences and enjoy that wonderful and historic city

Tips to Travel Venice and be a Respectful Tourist. Survive the Overturism

In April 2017, the Ministry of Interior of Italy put into effect a so-called “Daspo Urban” law. This law allows police forces to restrict access in certain areas of the localities to individuals considered a possible threat to public order, morals or public decency. This is without necessity without the need for evidence of crime. This applies to vagabonds, but it also began to be applied to tourists within certain areas. Article 9 of the decree establishes a monetary penalty of 100 to 300 euros and an expulsion order from the place where the heho occurred and against any person. This expulsion can be for 48 hours and the recidivism reaches much higher penalties.
