Venice weekend: Speedy introduction to Venice - train to hotel in thirty minutes

Oct 19, 2013, 12:05 PM, Venezia-Murano-Burano, Venice, Italy

The wonderful thing about travelling by sleeper is that your mighty steed brings you right into the heart of your destination city, thrusting you straight into a sea of sound. In the case of Venice one emerges onto a flight of steps leading directly to the Grand Canal, plunging us straight into Vemecian life. And, in just half an hour we were conveyed from the railway platform to the hotel lobby, via a rather exhilarating water taxi ride. #vem13 #Thello #sleeper #train #venice #railway #station #grand #canal #speedboat #water #taxi #transfer #rialto #Hotel #Splendid #introduction #fb
