ABCs of Cruising: V is for Venice, Italy

Venice, Italy

Best in Cruise Travel Venice, Italy.

Venice is one of the best places to visit by ship. I would suggest choosing a smaller ship that caters to more time in port. Why? Because often times the boutique ships like those from Azamara, or the ultra-luxe ships of Silversea will overnight in Venice, which allows more time to explore. The ship is a floating hotel and it can mean spending less money in Venice on accommodations, which is a good thing because the capital of the Veneto region located in northeastern Italy can be quite costly.

I have written a lot about Venice for cruise visitors. If you would like to learn about logistics of this port, click here.
