Venice Carnival 2014

Always wanted to go and it is worth it! The only one thing making my mind busy was how to get there elegantly without stress?
The city will be full, the parking lot Tronchetto full, go by plane it’s not a win as well. The airport is too far away. What about bus? Oh, oh no chance. They do only night transfers. Not for me. I can’t sleep in a bus. I can’t sleep in plane. I can’t sleep sitting. I do simply need a proper bed. And then some how I remembered the movie with Angelina Jolie ”The Tourist”. Ohlala, yeah that’s it! Go to Venice by train! It was totally stressles. The good thing about going by train is the rail way station is in the middle of the city. You don’t need any other transport to reach your hotel if you book the hotel strategically 10 minutes walk from rail way station. The city is compact, small, the walking distances are not that bad.

And now the first impressions of the 2014 Carnival in Venice: this year the Theme was ”La natura e’fantastica”.
