Overflowing Venice



 

 

 

VENICE MADE EASY REACHING-LEAVING VENICE After project MOSE failed and water levels rose in the Laguna, means of transportation evolved. Prohibition of motor boats and water level variations make it difficult to travel on water. Once you have arrived in the area of Venice with an airship, or by a sailing ship, you can take one of the different cable car lines that allow you to get from the mainland to the islands and to quickly reach your residence while overlooking the Laguna from one of the legendary Vaporettos that once circulated on water ! From the cable car stations, or close to them, you will find different means of transportation to continue your journey through the neighbourhood.

GETTING AROUND VENICE

Walking is the easiest way to get around in Venice.

If you want to relax, you can use suspended platforms that recreate the historic paths of the old Vaporettos that once circulated on water.

TO SEE /TO DO IN VENICE

Romantic gondola rides on the Grand Canal amongst polluting and noisy boats are over !

Now, enjoy authentic rides that allow you to discover the fauna and flora of the Laguna which claimed back its rights after being neglected, and which witnessed the arrival of new species that appreciate the quality and tranquility of the canal.

As you slowly walk along the canals behind glass walls, get to know this ecosystem and admire the hundreds of species now present in the Laguna.

After visiting a more historic Venice, do not miss out on neighbourhoods that were built in recent decades where you have enough space to practice your favourite sports and where you can experiment with contemporary architecture.

WHERE TO GRAB COFFEE ?

To enjoy an exceptional view of the Laguna, how about grabbing a cup of coffee at one of the cable car stations’ scenic bars. Prefer off-peak hours to avoid crowds of workers !

WHERE TO SLEEP ?

You can remained within the residential flotants districts in the Laguna to admire Venice.
