Whether you arrive from the mainland, crossing
the lagoon in the train by the railway bridge,
or moor in the heart of the city from the
sea and disembark from a steamboat in the
Pool of San Marco or at the Zattere, the
vision of Venice is an enchantment: ever,
in any season.
We suggest you to visit this incomparable
city in winter time, when it shows its
real aspect, in a bright sunny day or
wrapped in a veil of mist, or under a
drizzling rain and, why not?, also with
the high tide!
In Autumn and Winter you may have the
opportunity to experience the Venetian
way of life, away from the usual summer
crowdings, crossing " campielli "
and walking along " calli "
immersed in a peaceful silence, the inhabitants
being absorbed in their everyday life.
You may visit museums, churches and palaces
without submitting to fatiguing queues,
and have the considerable opportunity
to get an accommodation for about half
the high-season charges.
All restaurants offer better service,
and you may defer lunching or dining in
tranquillity, enjoying superb seafood
dishes or even, as we suggest, simply
standing up in a " bacaro "
( typical venetian tavern ) sipping an
"ombra " ( glass of wine - 1/10
liter ) and eating " cicheti "
( typical venetian mixed snacks: meatballs,
boiled eggs with caper and anchovy, cheese
and ham and much more at the " Venetian
