Bus Train Boat

10 Aug

Unless you drive a car there is no direct way to go from Cortina in the Dolomites to old Venice out in the lagoon. For me it took a combination of bus, train, and vaporetto (water bus) and about half of a day to arrive at my next destination. The vaporetto in the photo is about to pull in to the station (the yellow and white platforms on floats) at St. Mark’s Square along the Grand Canal. The weather was hot and clear.

I left Cortina in the early morning on the Dolomiti Bus, which I must say, was very comfortable.

I saw the Cinque Torri one last time from below.

We passed the Olympic ski jump.

I got really lucky with this shot from the bus window.

The roads in the small towns are very narrow and here we had a standoff with another bus. We won. He had to back up so that we could both pass.

Arriving in Calalzo. This whole valley from Cortina to Calalzo is so beautiful and the bike path was visible from the road most of the way.

Then the transport became much faster. We left the mountains behind. The land became flatter and the houses looked more like this.

And I have a few more photos, but wordpress won’t let me upload them.

    I’ve made this same Journey a couple of times (although always by car).

      Lucky you. It was a hassle. The scenery from the bus leaving Cortina was beyond beautiful.
