VENETIAN LIBRARIES

Welcome to our new section dedicated to students, people who decided to move to Venice or tourists who might be interested in tasting what is like to study in the floating city!

We hope it could help someone out and, of course, give you advise and useful tips to survive, especially if you’re thinking to become a “Ca’ Foscarino” (we talked about Ca’ Foscari university previously).

So, what’s the best requirement for a student to have, except for well organized skills and a good motivation? No, not a great wallet for all the spritz that you could buy between a lesson and another (even if it’s still a nice feature), rather a quiet and calm space to study: that’s why, in this article, we are going to explore some Venetian Ca’ Foscari libraries.

STUDYING IN VENICE : CA’ FOSCARI UNIVERSITY

You may not know that Venice is not only the city of water or enchanting landscapes, but also one of the most recognised places for its supreme education: we are talking about Ca’ Foscari University, a guarantee since 1868 and, by now, perfectly incorporated with the citizen reality.

Ca’ Foscari Univesity was founded 150 years ago by three Italian politicians: Luigi Luzzati, Francesco Ferrara and Edoardo Deodati.

MY EXPERIENCE IN VENICE – BY ANNA LIBERE

It was natural to choose Venice this summer, as my husband and I were looking for a short holiday. Actually, I bought tickets to Milano Bergamo Airoport before we even started to plan anything. So, after buying plane tickets, we googled how far the airport is from the centre of Milan and we were surprised — actually, the airport is situated right between the cities of Milan and Venice. That’s why we decided to visit Venice! We had four full days in Venice as we booked in advance a train in the early morning, to be sure that we could spend most of the time in Venice. Four days are not that much, but definitely enough to catch the feel of a city and see some highlights (don’t plan too much, Venice is a place to return again and again!).

WE ARE NOW ARRIVING TO: VENEZIA SANTA LUCIA, FINAL DESTINATION OF THIS JOURNEY

Are you planning to come to Venice?

Are you worried about how the transports and the logistical services work?

And do you want to keep it easy, and maybe lose yourself in a perfect Italian atmosphere and routine?

This is the article for you! When you are finally in Italy, the first thing you may wonder is “how do I reach the city?”. Of course, the simpler way is to find a taxi or a bus outside the airport if you are coming by plane: this will bring you to Piazzale Roma, the only square in Venice where cars are free to circulate. However, there is another beautiful manner to reach the floating city: we are talking about the train!
