Venice city breaks
Short breaks to Venice Italy can be rewarding. With proper planning you will be able to make the most of your time in the city. Even more so if you take advantage of the early morning and evening hours. Time when the daytrippers aren’t clogging the city during your Venice city breaks.
Venezia Unica City Pass
Venice offers a customisable city pass. You can tailor the pass to your interests. It is possible to add transit, museums, churches, tours and even golf. Yes I said golf. While I doubt you’ll save any money buying the pass you will save time buying one pass instead of trying to arrange a hand full of tickets.
The pass can add various types of transit. If you are arriving by train the one to focus on is the ACTV – TIME-LIMITED TICKETS which includes the vaporetto. Pick the option that coincides with the length of your holiday in Venice. If on the other hand you are arriving from the MARCO POLO AIRPORT take a look at the transfer options. There is also an option from the cruise terminal.
Let me make a suggestion to think about walking to the extent you can. Walking and getting lost will allow you to find corners of the city that are not just undisturbed by tourist but with their own charm. Taking the vaporetto around the canal has its own charm but it leaves you outside looking in. Venice is a city of bridges. On arrival or leaving taking the vaporetto can avoid you having to drag your cases over those bridges but otherwise think walk first.
The card allows you to buy tickets to various types of museums. If your Venice city break includes museum you’ll be able to pick between PEGGY GUGGENHEIM COLLECTION,NAVAL HISTORY MUSEUM,TEATRO LA FENICE,JEWISH MUSEUM OF VENICE plus various other choices. Booking your tickets all from the comfort of home.
Note St. Mark’s basilica is not included with the card. The basilica has free admission. You can buy a skip the line ticket to avoid the queue but entrance to the church itself is free. Note you can only buy a skip the queue ticket April to the start of November. The other four months the ticket isn’t available. Queues are usually shorter also.
