Our trip details if we need them later

Direct flight from New York to Venice, daily , on Delta

Arrives at Airport Marco Polo.  Bought this on Kayak.com , I would say about $1000 in economy,

We rented an economy car from Marco Polo using also Kayak.com . It was about $150 for 4 days.

We drove from Marco Polo upon arrival to the hotel where we stayed near Venice.

It is called : Villa Cordevigo.

It is a 5 stars hotel, check the website, it is AMAZING. It was about $300 per night for one of their best twice upgraded rooms.

Pictures and reality is even better. They have on premises a 1 Michelin start restaurant... And their attached winery Villabella actually has amazing wines !


Day 1-3 we visited wineries near Verona in Valpolicella. Here is what we visited and what I thought of them :


Then on day 4 drive back to Marco Polo airport, drop off car, and go to Venice  :

Taxi 40 Euro to Piazzale Roma,

From there take Vaporetto to where you are staying.

We used AirBnB.com and we payed 168$/night to stay in this apartment that was amazing.

If you stay there take Vaporetto to St.Maria Giglia, Vaporetto Number 1. It is the next stop after Academia.

Here is where we stayed :


The apartment is very well located. Really amazing , and much better even then the pictures. I loved the art in the apartment. Only draw down is 3rd floor and no elevator.

In Venice we recommend to eat at :




Meals are not cheap but at least in these authentic places they are amazing.

Let me know if I can help with anything else.
