Day 1 - Depart U.S. / Fly overnight to Venice

Depart the U.S. for Italy. The particulars of your arrival overseas are detailed with your flight itinerary and airline tickets.

Day 2 - Arrive in Venice / Begin your Trip Extension

You arrive at the airport in Venice, Italy. Once in the arrival terminal, please proceed to the water taxi and Information desk. The staff of ‘Venezia Taxi'—one of the 3 operators there—will take care of you: they will provide a voucher and show you the way to your water taxi. From the airport pier, you'll transfer (approximately 35 minutes) to your centrally located hotel in Venice. At the hotel, our local expert will be available from 6-8 pm to answer your questions. The rest of the day is free to discover and dine on your own with the VBT City Information included in your Final Travel Booklet as your guide.

Day 3 - Exploration of Venice

Today, explore Venice to your heart's delight. Perhaps take a vaporetto to visit some of its islands. Built on 118 islands in a shallow lagoon, Venice is a city like no other. It contains more than 150 canals and 400 bridges, which are delightful to explore by gondola or water taxi. Much of the city can also be seen on foot. Be sure to visit the Grand Canal and the famous Rialto Bridge, as well as St. Mark's Basilica, one of the best examples of Byzantine architecture in Europe. Other spots not to miss include the Bridge of Sighs (said to have provided prisoners with their last view of freedom before their incarceration), the Doge's Palace, the Gallerie dell'Accademia and the island of Murano, famed for its glass-blowing. Your centrally located hotel will make it easy to access all the wonderful features this famous city has to offer.
 
NOTE: Italian museums are closed on Mondays.
