Travel while in Italy

You will have weekends to travel outside of Venice. If you choose to do so, you should consider traveling with others, and leave your itinerary with your faculty director or other students who are staying in Venice. We also suggest letting your parents or emergency contacts back at home know where you will be traveling. Letting others know where you will be (including hostel or hotel information) at all times is a best practice for traveling in case of emergencies and for your safety.

One important note about your travel plans: each year the Venetians have a mid-summer festival that you will not want to miss — the Redentore Feast. It is typically held the third weekend of July.
