2022: Besøg Venedig og Murano øen med Murano Vintage

2022: Visit Venice and Murano island with Murano Vintage

If you have an interest in glass art, history and food, Venice is the perfect destination. Murano Vintage has been to Venice - and we take you on our latest trip to fabulous Venice and the famous glassblowing island - Murano.

 

The tour goes to Venice and Murano Part 1

The trip goes to Venice - by land and by water

If you are planning a weekend get away, it is easiest to fly to Venice Marco Polo airport. The airport is located on the Italian mainland, and is only a short boat ride from the legendary island. Just outside the airport, you will find the pier, where for approx. 120 euros can book your own private boat or you can take the public water bus for approx. 30 euros. If it is your first trip to Venice, we can definitely recommend booking a private boat on arrival, which gives you the complete experience of entering Venice, and at the same time you will be dropped off as close as possible to your hotel (the drivers are also extra helpful 😉) . You will have plenty of opportunities to use the water bus during your stay – for example to and from the island of Murano. We will share our experiences on Murano island with you in The trip goes to Venice and Murano Part 2.

Hotel in Venice – a city full of possibilities

Venice is a mecca of culturally rich hotels with romantic, Italian decor. Venice is divided into neighborhoods and on this trip we booked Hotel Giorgione which is located in Cannaregio. The location is both central and makes it incredibly easy to get to Murano, as the water bus to Murano is only 10 minutes away from the hotel.

Restaurant experiences in Venice – a taste experience

Venice is full of fantastic restaurants and taste experiences, and we could undoubtedly write a novel just about the food alone. Fish is at the top of all menus, and it is generally recommended to order antipasti as well as the restaurant's fish platter. Here is a short list of some of our favorite restaurants in Venice:

  1. Trattoria Ca' D'Oro – a small family-owned restaurant located in the Cannaregio neighborhood in one of the small alleys. Even in absolute low season, it is usually fully booked, and we can recommend visiting them a few days in advance and booking a table.
  2. Trattoria Alla Palazzina – is beautifully located by one of the canals. The restaurant is known for their homemade pasta and wonderful fish dishes.
  3. Busa Alla Torre Da Lele (located on Murano) – this restaurant is mentioned in the Michelin guide year after year, and for good reason. Enjoy a really good lunch and an Aperol Spritz in the sun and then splash on the island.

Shopping in Venice – it cannot be avoided

There is plenty of opportunity to shop in Venice. It is not without reason that it is a popular destination for both couples and girlfriends – there really is something for everyone.

A must have when in Venice is one of the classic Venetian carnival masks and of course glass art from Murano. You will find the brightly colored glass on every street corner, and there is a large selection to choose from.

In the Calle Larga area you will find exclusive international brands such as Dior, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Burberry - but of course also Italian Prada, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana, Loro Piana and Valentino.

Italian coffee in Venice - anywhere, anytime

Italy is (also) known for their extraordinarily good coffee and it is available in all bars and restaurants.In Italy, espresso reigns and the Italian word for coffee is caffé, which is synonymous with espresso. Where we in Scandinavia can easily spend a long time enjoying a good cappuccino, the coffee culture in Italy is completely different. It is quite normal for Italians to enjoy un caffé at the counter and then immediately move on.

Bring your dog to Venice – the perfect match

Italians love dogs and there are no challenges in bringing your best friend to Venice. It is quite normal to see dogs in bars and restaurants in Venice, and you will meet a lot of cute dogs when you walk around the narrow passages. It is therefore possible to go on a trip to Venice with your best friend 😊
