WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT
The most convenient way to get to Venice from Florence is by train (it takes two hours). With multiple canals and minimal land, Venice has an old-world charm to it. We had a great time bargaining at the local leather market and at the shopping hubs in Mercerie and San Marco. Hollywood and Bollywood have painted innumerable images of Venice and its gondola rides.The reality doesn’t disappoint. However, a 30-minute ride costs around 70-80 euros (`5,600).
