BlOG SURF: Romantic

Venice is still one of the most interesting and lovely places in the world. This romantic sanctuary on a lagoon is virtually the same as it was six hundred years ago, which adds to the fascinating character.

Venice is the world’s only pedestrian city and the absence of cars makes it a particularly pleasant experience. If you want to get around a bit more quickly, there are numerous vaporetti (water buses). Travel cards are extremely useful since the basic fare for a single journey is EUR 6.50 whereas a 24h travel card costs EUR 18. Otherwise, take a walk. It is possible to walk from one end to the other in a couple of hours. Along the way you will discover marvellous art and superb architecture as well as hidden canals.

There are yellow signs all over the city which indicate the direction to the main attractions: Rialto and San Marco, the Ferrovia train station and the bus terminal at Piazzale Roma. These signs make it easy to find your way back. —
