Rewind… prior to my travels to Venice, brief research suggested that getting around the city was tricky (as there are no roads just canals) and that getting lost was inevitable. Crickey! What a trip this was going to be. I noted down my 3 must see sights with a little help from Greta’s Travels vlog and the rest would be spontaneous.
1. How to get to Venice:
Arriving at Treviso International airport (TSF) locate the Barzi coach kiosk to purchase a return ticket to Tronchetto for 22£. This is the fastest service via the motorway (40 mins duration) with only one stop (Mestre railway) before Tronchetto.
From Tronchetto get the People Mover shuttle train for €1.50 one way which stops you at Piazzale Roma then you can explore the city from there. The shuttle is located across the road from where the Barzi coach drops you off. Unfortunately I wasn’t aware of this service until the end of my trip and took a vaporetti (boat) instead costing 12€ return. Gutted!! Second to none views cruising through Grand Canal (motion sickness included) however that price difference *inserts crying emoji*. The disadvantage of this route are the fixed timings of the boat service (the last return service to Tronchetto was 17:30 which limited my exploring time)
2. Embrace getting lost:
3. Avoid tourist traps
4. Photogenic city
My time in Venice was short lived however I managed to get a feel of the city and learn some tips to pass onto future travelers or change if I were to return.
