En Venecia sobre todo hay locales donde comer pizza al taglio, es decir, porciones de pizza. Son los que más fama tienen de la ciudad, aunque si como a mí, os gustan las pizzas con masa fina, estos locales no serán vuestros favoritos.
Los paseos en góndola son (muy) caros. Un recorrido de 30 minutos cuesta 80 euros, en teoría es el precio mínimo establecido. Hace años era más fácil regatear, pero ahora según tengo entendido lo tienen bastante estandarizado. La buena noticia es que en cada góndola caben 6 personas, así que si no tenéis inconveniente en compartirla con otros turistas este puede ser un buen modo de ahorrarse algo de dinero.
Como dato os diré que en la plaza San Marcos ya no se puede dar de comer a las palomas, o mejor dicho, sólo podéis hacerlo si la policía no os ve. Si lo hacéis (creo) sólo os dicen que esta prohibido y os invitan a cesar, no presencié que multaran a nadie directamente.
Existe un fenómeno en Venecia que en esta última visita tuve la suerte (?) de conocer. Se trata del acqua alta, pero como quiero ilustrarlo con una foto de lo más descriptiva, me dejo la anécdota para el post del lunes!!
Espero que os guste mucho y os sea útil este post, muchos besos!!
is the second post of Venice, in total there will be three, the one
that I have already published speaking about Murano and Burano, this one
that contains general information of the trip and a third one, in which
I will focus more on concrete corners, ice cream parlors, restaurants,…
I think the basic things you should know before going to Venice are:
The currency is the euro, and the language is the Italian. Everyone understand English, but also for your tranquility I
will tell you that speaking slowly we understand perfectly Italian and
they understand us well to the Spaniards.
with the currency and linking to the issue of prices, drinks as in many
countries in Europe are expensive, at least compared to what we are
used to in Spain. The food usually has a similar price to here, it depends on the local; What is important, as I commented in the previous post, is that you
notice if you apply a surcharge for the cover or the service, if so, in
some restaurants if you ask for it they take it away.
The issue of displacement: in Venice there are no roads, so there are no cars or buses. To move around the city you can use the vaporetto (it costs 7 euros
per trip and there are bonuses), the water taxi (unless you have a big
budget I don’t recommend it), and on foot.
To get from the airport to Venice there are different options depending on the arrival airport.
From Marco Polo you can take a bus to Piazzale Roma and once there walk to your hotel, take a vaporetto or a water taxi. From
this airport you also have the option of taking a boat directly, the
price is 15 euros and the duration of the journey varies depending on
the destination, but to give you an idea to San Marcos takes an hour and
twenty minutes approximately. I have already made use of the two options, and I think I’ll take the first one, it seems faster.
From the Treviso airport you can take a bus or taxi (land) to Piazzale
Roma and once there as before walking, take a vaporetto or a water
There are transfer companies that make the complete tour combining
different means of transport, we ask for some budgets but the prices in
general are quite high.
Where to sleep: Venice is not overly large, so the location of the hotel is not overly relevant. In
my case I stayed very close to the San Marcos square, it’s a quite
comfortable place because everything is close and the vaporetto stops
are also very close. What
I don’t recommend is to stay in places near Venice (Lido, Murano,
Mestre,…), at the end with what you will have to pay for
transportation to get to Venice and the time you will lose won’t be
The plugs are the same as in Spain.
In Venice especially there are places to eat pizza al taglio, that is, portions of pizza. They are the most famous in the city, but if like me, you like pizzas with thin dough, these places won’t be your favorites.
The gondola rides are (very) expensive. A journey of 30 minutes costs 80 euros, in theory it’s the minimum price established. Years ago it was easier to haggle, but now, as I understand it, they have quite standardized. The good news is that there are 6 people in each gondola, so if you can sharing it with other tourists, this may be a good way to save
a fact, I will tell you that in Piazza San Marcos you can no longer
feed the pigeons, or rather, you can only do it if the police don’t see
you. If you do it (I think) they only tell you that it’s forbidden and
they invite you to stop, I didn’t witness that they would fine anyone
There is a phenomenon in Venice that in this last visit I had the luck (?) to know. This is the acqua alta, but as I want to illustrate it with a photo of
the most descriptive, I leave the anecdote for the post on Monday!
I hope you like it a lot and this post will be useful, lots of kisses!!
