1. Day Trip to Venice by High Speed Train from Rome
Set off on a day trip from Rome to reach Europe’s most romantic city in just a few hours by high-speed train. Your tour leader will be with you all the way from Termini train station, escorting you to the platform and on board. They will explain the highlights of Venice, and give you your ticket for Venice’s waterbus transportation. After reaching Venice in little more than 3 hours, enjoy a one-way ride on the Venetian typical public transport, the waterbus, or Vaporetto. It will be a fantastic opportunity to get the first glimpse of this magical city and its breathtaking views. Get to St. Mark’s Square, the heart and soul of Venice’s historical center. From the waterfront, marvel at the magnificence of the western façade of St. Mark's Basilica. Take the opportunity to go shopping or sip a good Italian coffee in one of the historic venues in the center, or get lost in the labyrinth of the insanely romantic alleys. You definitely cannot miss the Bridge of Sighs (Ponte dei Sospiri), which is among the city's most beloved locations and a source of many popular Instagram shots. On the way back to the railway station, join your tour leader for a fantastic aperitivo, or cicchetto as the locals call it: a mix of small savory side dishes typically served in the so-called bàcari and accompanied by the famous Venetian Spritz. Head back to Rome.
