Venice connected

When I think of February in travel, I think of Venice. For the very simple reason – Venice carnival. That is one of the most popular times to visit Venice. In addition to that, many travellers around the world dream to spend Valentines day in this city. But, in this post, I’m not going to talk about what you can do in Venice at this time of year,  I’m first going to show you something that was just launched that will help you plan your trip and stay in Venice.

Venice connected is a new online service that allows you to buy a number of services that might be necessary to you when you come to Venice. The plus side of it is that you can now plan and organize your trip more easily. Since all products and services are organized by season, you can plan your expenses in advance and what is more important, you are not dependable on travel agencies. Venice is the kind of place that is usually more expensive if you travel alone. Now, you can customize your Venice trip, besides hotel, easier. By that I mean, choose the number of days you want to stay, secure a parking space if you arrive by car, etc. It’s not packaged.

Many cities around the world have the option of buying and/or booking tickets online to avoid long waiting in lines, especially where is a limitation on the size of the group. At the end, people didn’t come all that way to stand in line. So, if you’re still not using that option when travelling, start searching, it will allow you to spend a lot more time on something else than standing in lines. Venice connected offers tickets for museums, public transport, securing a parking space and many other. If you buy products for more than one day, you get free internet access via wifi in San Giuliano Park. There is only one catch about Venice connected; you need to buy whatever you might need 15 days in advance. Also, Venice connected offers reduced prices.

Their website has a calendar where you choose your dates  and search for places on marked Google maps. Very simple, with only the basic information. But enough for booking what you need.

Hope this is a helpful source for you!

    Hi Hilary,

    you’re welcome. Many cities today have an option to book tickets online for museums and attractions as well as passes for public transportation and sights. The best way to search for them are on official city websites; they’ll be mentioned or have a banner on one of the sides.

    Venice is all in preparations, it should be flooded by people starting this weekend!

    Thanks Hilary, have a great day! ;)
