Venice is one of the most popular destinations in Europe and during the tourist season it is visited by more than 40.000 people every day! Its proximity to Slovenia, its rich history and accessibility for wheelchair users makes it a perfect destination for a one day trip.
Early in the morning we will leave Ljubljana and proceed to Venice, which is 240km away from the Slovenian capital. On the way to Venice we will pass by the cities of Gorizia and Palmanova, a famous Italian shopping destination. After 2,5h ride we will park our minivan at Tronchetto parking and get on board a special accessible Venice water bus – called Vaporetto by the locals.
The ride from Tronchetto to the main square in Venice – Saint Marco’s square takes about 45 minutes. When we arrive to the Old part of the town you’ll be briefed about the rich history of the Venice republic which was a regional power in the Mediterranean for several centuries. We’ll also take a look inside the Doge’s palace, where the rulers of Venice republic were residing, and the 11th century St Mark’s Basilica, which are both accessible for wheelchair users.
