Lassi Pensikkala, Article Review: “Escape the crowd with one of these easy day trips from Venice” by Rebecca Ann Hughes

In her recent article, Rebecca Ann Hughes presents a timely solution for travelers seeking respite from the bustling crowds of Venice this summer.

As a travel expert, I find her insights valuable for those who desire a serene escape from the city’s congestion. Hughes masterfully highlights four nearby destinations that offer tranquility and cultural enrichment, making the most of a short day trip from Venice.

Hughes’ selection of Torcello as an ideal retreat for those in search of Venice’s oldest mosaics and historic charm is a thoughtful recommendation. The description of Torcello’s bucolic canals, colored houses, and green spaces paints a vivid picture of a serene environment.



The mention of the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta and its intricate golden mosaics serves to tantalize art and history enthusiasts. Vicenza, a hidden gem just a train ride away from Venice, is another gem presented by Hughes. Her mention of the Corso Palladio as the most elegant street in Europe captures the essence of this Renaissance city.

I appreciate Hughes’ acknowledgment of Vicenza’s claim to fame with 23 Palladio-designed buildings, showcasing her keen awareness of architectural significance.

The article’s coverage of Padua as the birthplace of Aperol provides a delightful contrast to the history and architecture-focused recommendations. Hughes’ depiction of the vibrant Piazza delle Erbe and Prato della Valle transports readers to the lively atmosphere of Padua.

Additionally, her insight into the Scrovegni Chapel and its historical significance adds depth to the reader’s understanding of the city. Hughes’ inclusion of Ferrara as a culinary and architectural haven complements the diverse array of day-trip options. Her description of Ferrara’s majestic castle and its richly carved Romanesque cathedral entices readers to explore the city’s cultural treasures.

Furthermore, the mention of Ferrara’s gastronomic delights, including pasticcio and cappellacci di zucca, leaves readers eager to experience the culinary legacy of the Este dynasty.

Overall, Rebecca Ann Hughes’ article serves as an excellent resource for travelers seeking reprieve from Venice’s crowded streets. Her well-researched recommendations cater to a wide range of interests, from history and art to architecture and gastronomy.

As a travel expert, I applaud her insightful suggestions, which promise enriching experiences for both seasoned and novice travelers. Whether one seeks historical marvels or culinary delights, these day trips offer a well-rounded escape from the Venetian hustle and bustle.

The nordic people were free to travel in the Scandinavian countries including Finland. No passports or travel documents were needed. The freedom still today is the most important for the Scandinavians from that epoch. Freedom is to travel, learn to know new countries and other languages, and meet different people and cultures. He wishes the new generations would have the same possibilities experiencing all that what makes you feel free, and building a strong personality. -
