Venice, The City Of Love

Posted by Kero at Sunday, May 23, 2010
After our Rome rendezvous, we boarded Italy's high speed train called EuroStar to reach the next place for our holiday. The travel time from Roma Termini to Venezia Sta. Lucia is four hours. Glenda, our Italy contact person, booked our train tickets way ahead of schedule so we were able to avail the first class coach for the price of Class B. Train ticket for each person costs 69 Euro (345 AED/ 4,140 PP)

We arrived Venezia Sta. Lucia station around lunch time and boarded a public transport called vaporetto. We made several stops along the way, picking and dropping passengers, that it took a good 45 minutes before we reached the main district of San Marco where our hotel is located. Today, I share with you photos of our first day in the City of Love.

Venice is the only city in the world built entirely on water.

It stands on dozens of islets linked by some 400 bridges. The most famous of them is called Rialto Bridge spanning the Venice Grand Canal.

The romantic and expensive gondola ride. It costs 80 Euro for 40 minutes along the Grand Canal.

The colorful carnival masks for souvenirs.
