Visit Venice During Your Italy Vacation

You will be given a Venice Card which allows you free access for seven days to the museum and casino. You will not only get a free waterbus or vaporetti services plus a free boat trip from the airport with this card. Airports in Venice on the ground head and newly renovated.

You can go to the train station from here to get to other parts of Venice. If you are driving your holiday to Italy, you can reach Venice by car, but you have to take a boat Ferry.

If you are in Venice you have to travel to the city of gondolas. There are several tours available. For something completely different for an Italian holiday in Venice and if you are really in the mood for it, maybe you can even take a tour of what is called a serenade.

This tour is accompanied by singers (usually baritone) and guitarist or someone playing the accordion.

Venice is generally crowded with tourists in the summer so if you can, visit during the offseason. Or you can easily opt for a private tour gondola which may be more expensive but far away from all the crowds.
