Venice in September

Jump to last reply

Another question!
Traveling to several European countries in 2016 and my husband and I along with my parents are looking to arrive just before the Regatta Storica. We arrive on Saturday the 3rd and leave Venice on the 6th to go to Marco Polo airport to fly to Krakow.
We were thinking of staying in the Hotel Canal Grande and requesting a canal facing room to watch the festival from. Because it's our first time to Europe I have the dream of taking a gondola ride, but wasn't sure if it would be a bad time with the festival in town? A lot of people have said you only need about 2-days to see the main highlights, was thinking on our 4th day of getting out of Venice and closer to the airport so we wouldn't have to worry about transportation and we could see another area - it may also help on cost since Venice is on the pricier side for us. Any tips on visiting Venice during the festival would be greatly appreciated!

    first of all, you don't need to worry about being closer to the airport - you can be in Venice within an hour of exiting the arrival hall, and that's if you are unlucky with the bus timings. There is a bus leaves the airport [and Venice for the return journey] every 20 minutes - it's called the ATVO bus, the bus stop is just outside the terminal and it drops you at Piazzale Roma which is the main hub for catching a vaporetto [water bus] to whatever hotel you choose.

    [there are other ways of doing it, but that's the fastest].

    You won't see another area between Venice and the airport - there really isn't anything much to see. There are other places you can go from Venice either by vaporetto [to the islands of the lagoon, which aren't just the standard 3 of Murano, Burano and Torcello - there are many more] or by train, but really with only 2 days, [3 nights] you are not going to run out of things to do in Venice proper though I would always recommend a trip to Burano and Torcello to anyone who is staying more than a day or two.

    I've not been in Venice during the festival you mention but it's unlikely to take over the city for the entire time you're there, so there should be plenty of time to squeeze in a gondola ride. [they last about an hour]. but you don't have to do that to enjoy Venice - riding around on the vaporetti has always been enough for me and i've been 5-6 times.

    working out your dates you only have 3 nights anyway, so if it's your dream to stay in a room with a canal-side view, I'd go for it. The hotel you mention is showing rooms on expedia for £223 a night for the dates you mention. but you will have to do your own research about whether it will offer you views of the festival.

    Good luck!
