Visit the historic and refined city of Venice, a world-renowned unique wonder, a museum in the open air. Are you looking for a train to Venice for your next vacation? Then get on board Italo and reach the ancient lagoon city that continues to win the hearts of visitors from all over the world with its bridges, canals, and squares that just beg to be discovered.
To give you all the charm of Venice, discover the city from two different perspectives: walking around to admire the enchanting views, or relaxing while being rocked by the gentle sway of a gondola.
For a round trip in one day, the must-see destinations are: the scenic Piazza San Marco considered the salon of Venice, the lavish Basilica of San Marco, a unique example of Western-Eastern architecture thanks to its grand gold mosaics, inlaid floors, and colored marbles; the Doge's Palace with its private apartments, and the famous Bridge of Sighs that was even crossed by Casanova during his escape.
When it comes to a snack break, the advice is to take a seat in one of the historic cafes in Piazza San Marco, where you can breathe in all the atmosphere of the lagoon city.
A must-see stop is the Rialto Bridge, the king of all bridges, from which you can see the Grand Canal from a different perspective. Of course, by extending this route, you can visit other treasures such as the Galleries of the Academy, the Church of San Zaccaria, or the La Fenice Theater.
If the views of Venice's canals aren't enough, take the first ferry and let yourself be enchanted by the nearby islands of Burano, Murano, and Torcello, which preserve Venice's most authentic traditions: Burano famous for its colorful houses and for the craftsmanship of lace; Murano known all over the world for its ancient tradition of glassmaking, and Torcello mystical island that combines intense spirituality with numerous artistic testimonies.
Venice is certainly a city that fascinates all year round, but the carnival makes it even more magical. The Venice carnival is in fact one of the most famous in the world and certainly an event to participate in at least once in a lifetime. Wear one of the traditional costumes and let yourself be involved in this evocative popular festival considered unique for its history, masks, and atmospheres!
And if you have planned your trip to Venice for the third weekend of July, you absolutely cannot miss the Feast of the Redeemer, with hundreds of boats pouring into the canals forming a long bridge over the Canale della Giudecca and ending with an unforgettable pyrotechnic show that lights up the lagoon. All that's left to do is pack your bags and set off by train to discover this unique city in the world!
