Venice at night – some advice
The streets of Venice in the evening are in fact a very safe and quiet place, perhaps too quiet according to the youngest students or natives who usually like to meet for a spritz or a glass of wine in a wine bar in Campo Santa Margherita. After the day trippers have gone, the city tends to become really lively only during events such as the carnival or the Feast of the Redeemer.
Night tour in Venice and gondola ride
Our lagoon island, with its its labyrinths of streets and canals, is a mysterious and fascinating place at night.
On sunny days the lagoon shines, with the countless reflections created by the canals that edge the buildings. At sunset it becomes a fairytale landscape: the sun turns the sky red, everything fades and seems to become a painting by Turner.
The night instead is the moment of quiet after the assault of the crowds of tourists: it is here that brings out its unique charm.
Especially in the winter months, when you visit Venice, the fog comes down and cloaks everything in mystery.
Wandering around the city takes on a fantastic and strangely magical air. It is precisely at this moment, when you almost cannot distinguish the person who is crossing the bridge in front of you, or on a clear night when the moon illuminates the waters, that the adventure begins.
A Venice night gondola ride is a really unmissable experience !
