For those who chose Venice as their base city and want to take one (or more) round trips, but do not know where to go, in this post we will tell you which are the best round trips from the city of lovers! Is everyone ready? Let’s get to our post of the day: the best round trips from Venice. Here at  Your Travel to Italy with Ana Patricia  you make the trip of your dreams !!! ALSO: see our  “Accommodation in Italy – Tips for your holidays!”

Introduction

Venice is a magical city par excellence! Famous all over the world for its canals and splendid St Mark Square, Venice is the type of city that makes us fall in love at the same moment we step into its territory. In the Veneto region, Venice is an excellent city for those who want to get to know art, culture, architecture and history in one trip, but because it is a small city, it doesn’t require so much time to visit it, although it invites its visitor to look it with affection, calm and time.

Super Tips

  • If you are going to Venice and will choose Venice as your base city, avoid heavy and very large suitcases! It can become a nightmare to walk across the bridges – especially the narrowest ones – with this type of suitcase! Whenever you think about going to Venice, remember to travel “light”, O.K?

Base City

If you decide to choose Venice as your base city and would like to visit other Italian locations, know that it is possible and very simple! Today we bring you some options for round trip, departing from Venice. Of course, there are countless options and we could make a huge list with all of them, however, we will (try) to keep the list as short as possible, including cities that, in fact, are unmissable for anyone in Venice. Shall we see our options? Read also where to stay in Venice?

Good to know

  • Whenever you think about taking a round trip, consider the following: the ideal round trip is one that, considering the round-trip times – combined – are less than a maximum of 4 hours (two to go and two to return). Trips with travel time greater than 4 hours end up not being worthwhile, because in addition to counting the travel time, you may have little time in the destination city and need to do everything in a hurry, which I do not advise.
  • The trains that operate the mentioned sections are from Trenitalia and Ítalo and you can get tickets online and even get good discounts.

1) The best round trips from Venice: PADUA (PADOVA)

Padua, Veneto, is a seductive city! With its priceless artistic heritage, a city that deserves a visit! The city’s arcades are noteworthy and a stroll through the historic center is unmissable, as are the magnificent frescoes by Giotto in the famous Scrovegni Chapel, erected between 1303-05, and the huge 13th-century Saint Anthony’s Basilica. Padua also offers us a visit to the past with its incredible Museum of Medieval and Modern Art and the Archaeological Museum.

A little about St. Anthony’s Basilica

Domes of Byzantine style and precious works of art characterize the basilica; here you can also see the tomb of St Anthony. In the historic center of the city, there are streets with arcades and elegant cafés frequented by students at the University of Padua, founded in 1222.

Best option to go to Padua…

The best option to get to Padua from Venice, without a doubt is using the train. Trains depart from Venice to Padua every 15 minutes, and you can use one of Trenitalia’s regional trains or, if you prefer, you can opt for high-speed trains, or Frecciarossa or Italo, which take only 25 minutes to reach the station of Padua.

Don’t want to stay on the island? No problems! Search for Mestre, Campalto or Favaro Veneto, which are the mainland cities of Venice and offer excellent accommodation options. A little further from Piazzale Roma, about 20 minutes by water transport, they do not have magnificent views from the bedroom windows, but it is ideal for those who want to save on accommodation.

Tips

  • The tip to save A LOT is to book your hotel in advance.
  • As we also mentioned: beware of excess baggage! It is very complicated to get around with large volumes in Venice because of the bridges, stairs and narrow streets.
