How to get to Venice
Tips for a trip to Venice from Caorle
Make your holiday at San Francesco Village unforgettable by visiting one of the most beautiful cities in Italy: Venice.
Venice is a wonderful, world-famous city. For even a short visit to the city of Venice, it would take at least four to five days, but we will be more than happy with what we can see!
To visit Venice would take many days but…
…even in one day you can still admire all the city’s most beautiful sights.
Hence St. Mark’s Square with the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs, the Rialto Bridge with its famous, adjacent fish market and the Accademia Bridge, which ends in front of the eponymous Galleries containing paintings by the greatest Venetian painters: Tintoretto, Titian, Canaletto, Giorgione, Giovanni Bellini, Vittore Carpaccio, Cima da Conegliano and Veronese.
One could spend an entire day just in here. Another Venetian jewel is the “Teatro La Fenice”, the interior of which can be visited during the day if there are no ongoing performances.
How to get to Venice?
The easiest way to get to Venice from the San Francesco Village is to leave early in the morning, catching the motorboat.
It sails daily, leaving us a few steps away from St Mark’s Square and takes us back in the late afternoon.
We enjoy a bit of sailing at sea and enter the city through the San Nicolò inlet channels, which has become famous for the construction of that gigantic concrete structure known as the “Mose”, useful for safeguarding the city from high tides.
Another option is your own car with various routes to choose from.
You can drive to the nearby town of San Donà di Piave and there take the train: there are frequent rides;
You arrive at the Santa Lucia railway station and you are already in the city centre, which is incredibly convenient given the geographical conformity of the city.
On the other hand, we do not recommend arriving by car directly to Venice, taking the long and scenic “Ponte della Libertà” which stops at the terminal in Piazzale Roma: in addition to the traffic, finding parking in summer is complicated as well as expensive.
By car, you can instead follow the coastal road that leads through Jesolo to Punta Sabbioni. The road stops there and you have to park in one of the many car parks available and take the vaporetto to Venice. From Punta Sabbioni, if you have already visited Venice on other occasions, you can take the same boat that will take you to the well-known islands: Murano, Burano and Torcello.
If travelling by motorboat bothers you and taking the car is even more annoying, the last choice is the bus.
There are frequent bus rides as well, and there are two different routes to choose from: there are buses that travel the entire perimeter of the coastline and in just over 60 kilometres take you to the city, arriving at Piazzale Roma; or the alternative is to arrive at Punta Sabbioni from where you can catch the vaporetto that takes you to Venice.
A map of Venice is a must!
To visit Venice, it is a good idea to organise yourself a day in advance! In fact, first it will be useful to get a map of the city, which is easily available at the Info Point of the San Francesco Village in Caorle or at nearby newsstands.
