Possible day trips from Venice

Jump to last reply

Good morning. Venice is looming very soon so I'm considering possible day trips.

I was in Venice the same time, last year, and had hoped to fit in a few day trips and did not leave. I will be with several friends again this year who may or may not share my enthusiasm for getting on a train.

This year I'd like to fit in a few - for certain, at least the nearby islands. This is trip number 7 to Venice for me (it will be my third New Year's Eve in Venice!) and I've yet to visit Burano, Murano, or Torcello.

Below are the possibilities. Don't freak out, I won't be visiting all of them and indeed if I merely get to the islands and Verona it will be a win. Any thoughts on great Xmas markets, whether or not it's dead dead dead in winter, and places to eat (or drink hot chocolate, etc) would be fantastic. I will be reviewing trip reports that talk about each so I'm just hoping for some vignettes, here.

Bologna is a possibility. I hear it has just about the best food in Italy and I'd like to check it out. Thoughts on lunch places would be grand... I'd probably arrive around 10 AM and leave around 5 PM given that it's a 1.5 hour train trip. I would visit their big food mercato and a few churches, too. This may end up being a grazing day, with one meal in the middle. Or maybe I'd stick around for an early dinner, we will see.

Verona may be a day trip with the group - Xmas markets! I visited here with my parents four years ago and I'd love to see it dolled up at Xmas.

Vicenza and Padua (or one or the other) for the Palladian architecture. One of them has a museum about him although I cannot remember which one right now. I was hoping a boat ride would be possible but apparently December is too cold and they close up the river boat tours.

Florence - I've been here numerous times and it would be a long day trip, but, if there is a sunny day, this may be in the cards.

Mantua has a UNESCO site.

Ditto Modena

Ditto Ravenna (I think it is just too far on the train, though).

Ljubljana sounds gorgeous but also probably too far for a day trip. I don't plan on any overnights to any places I've mentioned.

Ferrara?

Bassano del Grappa

Udine

Thank you for any thoughts (excluding OMG). :)
