“We have just arrived from Chioggia. We spent three wonderful weeks there in Pietro´s house. It was great, the house is perfect for a couple. It is very well situated, right in the centre of the village, quite close to the vaporettos and the main road. It has air conditioning for the hot days. His friends are very kind, friendly and helpful: They also offered their bikes to use. We had useful information to go to the beaches and Venice. We also had communication by mail, and even met him in person at the begining and at the end of the swap. He showed interesting places to see in Chioggia!
Chioggia itself is a beautiful place, with Canals like a small Venice, bars, pizzerias, terraces and a great atmosphere. We could enjoy the Sagra (fish festival in july) for ten days with live music, outdoor meals. Sandy beaches and other small towns like Padova, Verona, Vicenza, Garda Lake and Venice of course can be visited from Chioggia. Car is not necessary inside Chioggia. The best way to visit Venice and the Lagoon Islands is the vaporettos, small boats that can be taken 100 metres from the house. That’s why we feel so lucky for the opportunity we had to exchange with him and I recommend the experience as a unique chance to visit Venice in a relaxed way.”
