My wife and myself flew from Paris to Venice with Easyjet, another top budget airline in Europe. It was an early morning flight and the view of the mountains from the sky was amazing. We manage took an aerial image of Venice just before touch down at Macro Polo airport. The city, which built on water was one of the dream destination for many couples like us. Based on my experience, Venice is not that expensive compared with Switzerland.
We took bus from airport to Piazzale Roma, which is the last stop of the bus. Later we took Vaporetto (Water Bus) to our B&B at St Elena, which is located on south-eastern corner of Venice. We like the whole environment of this area, its a quiet and lovely residential neighbourhood, which is away from the crazy tourist hustle of Venice.
For tourist like me, the water is attractive, but for native Venetians, it is a very annoying problem. This is because of “Acqua Alta” (high water) or flooding. The Acqua Alta occurs during November and December because of the result of tidal activity.
