Special Boat Transfers for Summit Delegates

Venice is the world’s only fully pedestrian city and is easily walkable, although large crowds and the small streets make it harder. There are no cars, bikes, scooters or mopeds in sight. The Rialtine islands – the ‘main’ part of Venice – are small enough to walk from one end to the other in about an hour. The thick walls of some buildings make the walking routes suggested by Google maps less accurate when the mobile signal is lagging. However Google Maps is quite accurate, including the public transport timetables. Getting lost is part of the charm of Venice, so don’t get frustrated. High water (acqua alta) can be a further challenge when in Venice, especially in Piazza San Marco.
