Let's go to Venice

Check out our village in Caorle and visit the most beautiful and interesting places in Veneto and its surroundings!

Make your holiday at our village in Caorle unforgettable by visiting one of the most beautiful cities in Italy: Venice.

However, if you wish to visit one of the wonders of the world, you should plan it a day in advance! First of all, it will be useful to get a map of the town, which is easily available at the Info Point at the San Francesco Village in Caorle or at nearby newsstands.

A map of Venice is essential!

Especially if you want to discover the most hidden and therefore most picturesque calli (narrow streets) or campielli (small squares); the map will help you not to lose your way back. A short visit to the city would take at least four to five days, but we will take what we can see!

To visit Venice it would take many days but…

…even in one day you can still admire all the most beautiful tourist attractions of the city.

Then there is 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 Accademia Galleries that contain paintings by the greatest Venetian painters: Tintoretto, Titian, Canaletto, Giorgione, Giovanni Bellini, Vittore Carpaccio, Cima da Conegliano and Veronese.

A whole day could be spent just in here. Another Venetian jewel is the La Fenice Theatre, whose interior can be visited during the day if there are no performances going on.

How to reach Venice?

The second thing to do before going to Venice is to choose the best way to get there, and there are several choices.

By motorboat

The simplest one is to leave our village in Caorle early in the morning, embarking on the motorboat that travels daily, unloading you a few steps from St Mark’s Square and bringing you back late in the afternoon.

You can enjoy a bit of sailing at sea and enter the city from the inlets called “Bocche di Portoof San Nicolò, which has become famous for the construction of the gigantic concrete structure known as the “Mose” to safeguard the city from high tides.

By car

Another alternative is your own car with various itineraries to choose from. You can drive to the nearby town of San Donà di Piave and take the train from there: the runs are quite frequent; you will arrive at the Santa Lucia train station and you will already be in the city centre, which is incredibly convenient given the geographical features of the city.

On the other hand, we do not recommend that you drive directly into Venice, crossing the long and scenic Liberty Bridge (“Ponte della Libertà”) which stops at the Piazzale Roma terminal: besides the traffic, finding a parking space during summer is complicated as well as expensive.

With your own car, you can also take the coastal road that leads to Punta Sabbioni, crossing Jesolo. Here the road stops and you have to park in one of the many car parks available and take the vaporetto that takes you 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 of Murano, Burano and Torcello.

By Bus

If making the trip by motorboat bothers you and taking the car again even more, the last choice is the bus. Again, there are frequent services and two alternative routes to choose from: there are buses that travel along the entire coastal perimeter and in about 60 kilometres take you into the city, disembarking at Piazzale Roma; or you can arrive, again by bus, at Punta Sabbioni from where you can take the vaporetto that takes you to Venice, as we have already described a few lines above.
