A Weekend in Venice

Why only a Weekend in Venice? Quick travel has never been my style but the prices in Venice make it near impossible to take it slow. There are options of course – you could stay on the mainland and come into Venice daily by train. However, the romance of Venice after dark makes a stay in the city worth the price. This is true especially if you can reduce those nights by fitting as much as possible into fewer days! So learn how I was happy with this one exception to my slow travel rule, and discover how to spend

Milan: The Duomo Neighbourhood (Centro Storico)

Skip the wait – buy a Duomo rooftop pass Okay, so to get this pass you’ll still need to drop by the ticket building which could take up to 20 minutes of your time depending on whether the automated machines are running.

The price is the same as individually adding up the price of rooftop access with
