Although it takes a long time to get to know the Venetian lagoon, it is possible to see Venice in one day walking discovering the main places of the city. Today we offer one of the itineraries to visit Venice on foot, to admire the historic buildings and monuments from Piazzale Roma to the wonderful Piazza San Marco .
One day in Venice: departure from Piazzale Roma
This Venice tour starts from Piazzale Roma , the terminus for those arriving in the lagoon by car or bus, while those using the train descend to the Santa Lucia station, located a short distance away on the other side of the Grand Canal . From both points it is possible to take the vaporetto , a true symbol of Venice like the gondola ride , opting for lines 1 and 2 that go up the main Venetian canal until reaching Punta della Dogana da Mar, near Piazza Saint Mark.
The whole journey takes about 40 minutes, however by purchasing the day ticket you can get off at any vaporetto stop, using the means to see Venice in one day, discovering the beauties present along the two banks of the Grand Canal. Alternatively it is possible to start from Piazzale Roma and continue on foot , the itinerary is almost identical, but by boat you can easily reach both shores in an easier way.
Visit Venice in one day: the Constitution Bridge
