The legend has it that at noon in 421 AD, the foundation of Venice was laid by local tribes. From humble fishermen settlement, over the centuries, Venice expanded and slowly turned into the lengthiest ever-existing republic - La Serenissima or the Most Serene Republic, ruling both mainland and sea. An undisputed marvel of engineering, the floating city underwent several stages of construction and development to reach us with its splendor at the present day. Built on approximately 120 islands and crisscrossed by copious waterways, Venice unfolds its precious heritage of that glorious epoch when the city was self-sufficient and autonomous. A weekend city break is an excellent start to explore one of the most stunning cities in the world. Be aware, in Venice, it's difficult to run out of activities as the city offers plenty. But on a weekend you can cover some of the most iconic places Venice is famous for and feel its incredible and incomparable atmosphere getting closer to the local way of living. Start your trip on Friday. You can reach Venice either by car, train or plane. If you choose the first option, you must leave your vehicle at one of the public parking places. It's good to book in advance as in some periods you might not find available parking places. A train or plane are also good options as the city is well-connected by high-speed trains and international flights. However, whatever means of transportation you choose, you'll need a ticket for the public transport to stroll around, unless you decide to use the services of private water taxis as an option. This, of course, is possible if you have a higher budget. The ticket prices vary and depend on your needs. You can get single runs or 24H/48H tickets. The recommendation is to get one of the latter as they are the most convenient solution and allow unlimited rides on all urban Venice water busses. Another thing to keep in mind is that there is a surcharge for larger suitcase dimensions. You can check the official website with all the detailed information to avoid some unexpected surprises.
