Marco Rossi

Marco Rossi

Ciao! I started traveling around Italy in 2017 and finally I moved here to live, because Italy is the epicenter of art, history and beauty. I will show you Italy from the most interesting sides, will share with you secrets and traditions of this country and will help make your trip unforgettable.

Venice is the most romantic corner of Europe, located on Italy’s northern coast of the Adriatic Sea. Majestic architecture, a unique atmosphere of freedom and lightness, and lively streets labyrinths create a unique ensemble that must be seen, heard, and felt. Most of the “city on the water” is located on the islands in the Venetian lagoon, which are interconnected by a vast number of bridges. The entire historical center of Venice is included in the UNESCO cultural heritage list, which is not surprising because examples of architecture from the 14th-16th centuries have been preserved here.

Dangerous and recommended areas of the city

Santa Croce

Neighborhood Santa Croce is not a tourist district. There is the bus station, the port, the Santa Lucia train station and the large Tronchetto car park. Although this area is well served by vaporettos and water buses, it is still far enough away for visit.

Castello East part

The eastern part of the Castello district is a good area to enjoy a beautiful view of the lagoon but remains a little out of the way. In fact, it is not the ideal place for those who wish to stay in the heart of Venice. Indeed, it will take at least 25 minutes to reach San Marco Square by walking or by vaporetto.

San Marco

The San Marco district has the reputation of being the most beautiful district in Venice. Indeed, there are the most beautiful sites and monuments of the city: the Basilica of San Marco and its Campanile, the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs, the Fenice Theater, etc .

Excellent hotel in the center, close to the Rialto Bridge. Customer care and perfect cleaning. Well furnished, soundproof rooms with every comfort. Good breakfast with a wide selection of savory items, maybe a little less sweet. The lounge and bar in the breakfast room are very pleasant, overlooking the Grand Canal.

My favorite thing is to leave a 5 star review and Palazzo Baroccu was excellent. The hotel is located close to the shops of the Rialto and very close to the museums. I highly recommend the breakfast which was a feast of fruits, desserts, eggs on request, sandwiches, cereal, coffee and prosecco.

Parkings

Garage San Marco. This car park is the most expensive but it is the closest to the center of Venice.

City Parking Garage. This is the largest car park in Venice.

Terminal Fusina Venezia. Parking next to the cruise terminal in Mestre.

Parcheggio Saba Stazione Venezia Mestre. Covered parking near Mestre train station.

Covered parkings

To visit Venice, you need to leave your car in the parking lot. The best option is covered parking lots with reliable security, where you can leave your car for a day or more. The closer you park your car to the center of Venice, the more expensive it will be. Parking at Piazzale Roma is certainly convenient, but there are many other places that are equally convenient and more budget friendly, for example parking in mainland Mestre.

Amelia Lee

Crystalina, I returned from an 11-day trip in northern Italy after having the kind help of you to plan and build the itinerary. Happily, your recommendations were incredibly accurate and detailed, including parking, recommendations for restaurants and even leading ice cream parlors. We arrived at magical places, don't want to think what would have happened without your planning?! Thank you very much, Crystalina.

user

Anthony Long

We decided to fly and opened up to Crystalina 10 days before the flight. Crystalina found out exactly what we wanted and built us an incredibly accurate trip. She found accommodations that just suited us, and attractions that just suited us. And in the process we had one problem, Crystalina immediately mobilized, made phone calls and solved the problem for us from the country. For everything we received an exact link and a map, including opening hours. Thanks to Crystalina, we had a calm and flowing trip. Thank you so much, Crystalina!

Avery Flores

Crystalina prepared a simple and perfect trip for us, exactly according to our needs. We spent Sunday seeing special things in Milan and went shopping on Monday. She sent us to really worthwhile places! Then we went to Lake Como, with crazy views and lots of special observations. Every day we thought it was the most special it could be, and we were surprised to find out the next day that there was more! It was a fun and relaxed trip. We felt in good hands, and everything was accurate, including addresses from place to place, prices, and if we had a question, she immediately answered. In short, there are no words to describe it! I highly recommend Crystalina for anyone looking for a perfect trip without any headaches.
