Jednodniowa wycieczka do Werony

Polish

Szczerze mogę powiedzieć, że jednodniowa wycieczka do Werony pozwoli jedynie zorientować się, gdzie znajdują się zabytki, ale w Wenecji i innych ważnych, historycznych miastach jest podobnie. Wielu z Was nie ma czasu, żeby zostać tu dłużej, ponieważ niektórzy wybiorą najprawdopodobniej pobyt nad jeziorem Garda lub podróż po wielu miastach w krótkim czasie, więc chciałbym zadedykować ten wpis takiemu właśnie „szybkiemu turyście”.

Wymienię tu kilka wskazówek, dzięki którym zakochasz się w Weronie i będziesz czuć się smutno, odjeżdżając stąd zaledwie po kilku godzinach.

Murano

Polish
murano

W niedalekiej odległości od Wenecji, na małej wyspie Murano produkuje się, od ponad 600 lat, piękne wyroby szklane. Pierwotnie, przemysł szklarstwa artystycznego znajdował się w Weronie, jednak w 13 wieku przeniesiono go do Murano, ponieważ budynki w Weronie wykonywano wówczas z drewnianych ram i obawiano się, że dmuchacze szkła przyczynią się do spalenia miasta.

Venice’s Historical Regatta, September 2nd 2012

English
Venice regatta

The Regatta Storica is the highlight of Venice’s annual rowing calendar. This unique mode of transport has been used daily in Venice for thousands of years, and today, the magnificent historical water pageant involving the two teams of the Venetian Rowing Club, the Bissone and the Bucintoro, is world famous. The lagoon is plied by all kinds of water craft, typically 16th century-style boats with gondoliers in period costume, which carry the Doge, his wife, and the city’s highest ranking officials up the Grand Canal in a brightly coloured spectacle.

Murano

English
murano
A short distance from Venice, the tiny island of Murano, has been producing beautiful glassware for over 600 decades. Originally the glass-blowing industry was based in Venice itself, however, it moved to Murano during the 13th century as the buildings were made of wooden timber frames, and there was serious concern that the glass blowers would cause the city to burn down.

Day-trip to Verona

English
Day-trip to Verona
I can truly say that a day-trip to Verona is just a way to understand where are the monuments of Verona, but for Venice and other important historical cities is the same. Many of you don't have the time to stay here for so long, because maybe some prefers to stay on lake Garda or travelling to many cities in a short time, so I want to dedicate a bit of space to this sort of "quick turist".
I'll give you some tips to fall in love with Verona, so that you can feel sad to leave after the first hours here.
