11 Day Trips from Venice

With many names such as the “City of Bridges”, “City of Masks”, and “City of Canals”, it’s not hard to see why Venice is such a popular tourist destination.

However, with over 60,000 tourists milling around the city each day, it can get claustrophobic and difficult to enjoy the city.

There are many gorgeous day trip options from this great water city for you to make an escape. Here, I am going to introduce you to my favorite.


Only an hour or two by train from Venice, Verona’s train station Porta Nuova is only a twenty minutes’ walk from the historic center.


Murano, Burano, Torcello

Murano is known as the city of glass, there is also a gorgeous round Byzantine Church to visit.



The University of Padua is one of the most historic academies in the world where the astronomer Galileo was a lecturer.



The latest Romeo and Juliet movie adaptation had shot some of the scenes here (as well as Padua), with the Room of Giants in Palazzo Te being particularly memorable.


Lake Garda

Bluewater, green vegetation, and snow-capped mountains in the distance: that’s Lake Garda, the perfect destination to spend a day outdoors after some sightseeing in Venice.
