A city which is unique in the world: magical, romantic, mysterious,
and famous for its wonderful art treasures and traditions.
It is very easy to reach it from us.
You can spend a day exploring its charming little squares and alleyways,
or admire its beautiful canals from aboard a traditional gondola.
Above all, you must visit the famous Rialto Bridge, either by using the “vaporetto” (river boat) or on foot. From the station, follow Strada Nuova till you get to Campo Santi Apostoli: the Rialto is just 5 minutes away. The bridge was built to cross the Grand Canal, the city’s main artery, and is a real symbol of commerce in the oldest part of Venice.
Another famous bridge is the Bridge of Sighs, built of limestone from Istria.
You cannot go to Venice without visiting St. Mark’s Square, the great drawing-room of the city. Surrounded by colonnades and traditional cafés, the square is dominated by the great Basilica with its onion domes.
Another place you should see is the Venetian ghetto in Cannaregio, which is divided into three sections: Novo, Vecchio and Novissimo (New, Old and Very New). It is also worth visiting the Accademia Gallery, which houses Venetian masterpieces from the 14th to 18th centuries by artists such as Bellini, Giorgione, Titian, Tiepolo and Tintoretto.
How to get to Venice
From Caorle, you can get to Venice quickly and easily, either by boat, train, car or bus.
By boat: Boats leave Caorle harbour between 8.00 and 16.00, Monday to Friday. They follow the Adriatic coastline (passing the beaches of Eraclea, Jesolo and Cavallino), and take you straight to Riva degli Schiavoni, near St. Mark’s Square. The trip takes 2 hours.
By train: It’s easy to take the train to Santa Lucia station in Venice. From Caorle, it’s only a 15-minute drive to San Stino di Livenza, where you can park and catch the train. Trains run every 40 minutes and the journey takes about half an hour.
By car: You can also drive to Venice. You will need to go as far as Punta Sabbioni or Treporti, where you’ll find plenty of parking, and then take the vaporetto straight into Venice.
By bus: In summer, you can get to Venice from Caorle on the ATVO shuttle bus. Line 4 A (Caorle-S.Donà-Mestre-Venice) stops near the Hotel Ariston and takes you right to Piazzale Roma in Venice.
From here, you can take the vaporetto to St. Mark’s Square, choosing between various scenic routes.
