YOUR VENICE QUESTIONS ANSWERED
Where is Venice?
The Venetian Riviera describes a relatively small section of northeastern coast of Italy where the Venetian Lagoon runs into the Adriatic Sea. The area combines traditional Italy in the Veneto region capital, Venice, alongside family-friendly sands on the coast. A total of 100 small islands are connected by canals in place of roads - which can make getting around truly breathtaking!
What's the weather like in Venice?
Visiting Venice during the summer months typically means you will experience hot and humid weather similar to other Mediterranean climates. The Venetian Riviera is a great destination to visit most of the year, so while you may see a little more rainfall if visiting in either May or September, the city of Venice and the beaches tend to be less crowded.
Where is the nearest airport when travelling to Venice?
When booking flights to Venice and our nearby parks, Marco Polo Airport is only four miles north of the city, where we can arrange taxi transfers or car hire for you on arrival.
How do I arrange a gondola ride in Venice?
With so much of the city built upon waterways, it's pretty difficult to get around Venice without riding a gondola at some point! It is worth asking about the price of the ride before you start your journey, although it is usually around 80 euros for half an hour. There are cheaper alternatives, including boat tours that let you navigate the city, while sharing your gondola with others can also bring the price down.
