Timeless magic and charm.
Absolutely unique in its kind, for peculiarities and characteristics, Venice is certainly one of those cities that should be seen at least once in one’s life!
With its lagoon, it is among the Italian sites declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is, objectively, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and one of the most visited in Italy.
Magical and evocative, it is much loved for its atmosphere. Romantic city with undisputed charm, particularly loved by foreign tourists. Let yourself be pampered aboard a gondola. Lose yourself in the narrow streets, the splendid and noble palaces and the “campielli”. Admire the city from the Rialto Bridge or, from one of its magical Bridges. And, again, St. Mark’s Square, the Arsenale, the Basilica of Santa Maria gloriosa de Frari….
So: have a good trip to wonderful Venice.
The plane is undoubtedly the most comfortable and fastest way to reach the city. Venice-Tessèra is an international airport named after the famous Venetian explorer Marco Polo, located about 13 km from the city center. It quickly became one of the reference points for air traffic in Northern Italy, with more than 1,000 weekly connections to the main national, European and intercontinental destinations.
There are several options to reach the center of Venice. The cheapest solution is the bus, while the most suggestive is to arrive by sea.
The Alilaguna company service is active from the airport dock with connections to Venice and the main islands (Murano, Burano, Lido).
The Santa Lucia station is the city’s railway station, as well as one of the largest and most popular in all of Italy. It is located in the Cannaregio district, at the western end of the Grand Canal.
