Venice is not made for cars and does not allow them into the city, so if you have driven from another part of Italy or the airport, you will need to leave your vehicle either on the mainland, which is easier, cheaper and avoids the sometimes colossal traffic jams, or at the edge of the city centre.
If you park on the mainland in Mestre, you can choose between the rail station (and then proceed by train) or the San Giuliano parking lot (and proceed by boat). Venice is packed full of churches, museums and galleries.
The first two have bus links to their main train stations, and are then a one-hour or three-hour train journey respectively; Treviso has a direct bus (it) link to Piazzale Roma in Venice, from where a 30-minute journey on Route 1 of the vaporetto will take you to Salute.
Get a taste of what it feels like to be on a gondola for next to nothing: look for the yellow ‘Traghetto’ signs and follow them to the water. If you want one to yourself, the average price is €100 an hour.
You’ll find all the designer labels around San Marco, and especially on Calle Larga 22 Marzo.
We can’t express our happiness enough, The Varna IBC is one of the oldest and the most prestigious ballet competition in the World, but we can’t wait to see our dancer back in Arizona and hug and kiss them in person !!!!!!
Meet them both at Grand Prix Intensive on Labor Day weekend, next month.
