An added bonus is that in winter you see elegantly heeled Venetian ladies clad in ankle length fur coats making their way down the quiet labyrinthine alleyways, a far cry from a one-way pedestrianised Rialto Bridge in peak season. There are three ways to enter Venice – by bus, train or vaporetto (water taxi or bus). Nothing but nothing beats arriving in Venice by vaporetto. Start your trip with a bus transfer from the airport at Treviso to Piazzale Roma. Board a vaporetto here – by far the most romantic way to arrive in Venice itself.
