There are many ways to arrive in Venice and your first view of this magical city will remain in your mind for a long time. The least romantic or memorable but easiest, is by train (to Venice Santa Lucia station). In the nineteenth century a two mile long causeway was built from the mainland bringing the railway out to the lagoon islands of Venice; in the twentieth century a road was built alongside it and a large carpark constructed – there are no cars in Venice itself so it’s park and ride (vaporetto or gondola).
