Important Travel News From The World 

Have you heard of the new processors for traveling to Venice in 2024? We have created a quick guide on this topic on our blog but here is a quick summary:

Venice’s city council recently approved a special arrangement, introducing a 5-euro entry ticket for day visitors stepping into the city in 2024. The city has outlined the specific 29 days in 2024 when day visitors are required to purchase an entry ticket to step foot in Venice.

During the following periods in 2024:

  • April 25–30
  • May 1–5, 11–12, 18–19, 25–26

Travel Tips & Tricks

Packing Pro Tips: Have comfortable shoes

When traveling it is important to keep in mind good footwear due to the amount of walking involved. We recommend having a pair of waterproof shoes, and a comfortable walking shoe. Our go to shoes for our walking tours are sneakers, loafers for dry days. For wet days an ankle high boot is a good choice. Checking the weather two or three days before departing gives you an idea on what kind of shoe to bring. 

Navigating Local Cuisine: A Foodie’s Guide

Delight your taste buds with our tips on savoring the best local flavors without missing out on any culinary delights during your travels.

This week’s favorite local spot comes from Rome, Italy. It is a local coffee shop right next to the Spanish Steps. Antico Caffè Greco is a coffee shop that offers fresh espresso and daily pastries. It is a great spot to enjoy a sit down dessert and coffee or just to take in the architecture of the place itself. We highly recommend getting their cannelloni filled with jam to try!
