Venice Cruise Guide

Savor your days in the Floating City of Venice and embrace the Italian passion for food, romance and style. Cruise ships embark in several ports at Stazione Marittima. From there, you can easily take a quick light rail to the city center, Piazzale Roma.

If you have a limited number of days at port, you’ll easily be able to visit all the premier attractions, like St. Mark’s Square, and St. Mark’s Basilica, as well as the Doge’s Palace. You can choose to tour the pedestrian-friendly city by foot at your own pace or catch a vaporetto (water bus). Although Venice is bustling with tourism all year round, autumn and spring are usually the most pleasant times to visit, due to milder weather and fewer crowds.

No trip to Venice is complete without taking a romantic gondola ride through the Grand Canal, where you’ll glide past various churches and Gothic-style palaces like the Basilica di Santa Maria Della Salute. Finish your day by grabbing a bite at a traditional osteria (a bar serving food) while drinking authentic venetian wine.
