Marina di Venezia is Europe’s largest camping or glamping site. It lies on the tip of the northern promontory that separates the lagoon of Venice from the Mediterranean Sea. Right next to it is the entrance to the lagoon.
In 2018, Marina di Venezia celebrates its 60th anniversary. Because of this, many things have been redesigned and made even more beautiful. The mission has paid off. In the 60 years, the original campsite became a five-star camping village.
In 2018, the ADAC (Automobil Club n.1 in Europe) and the ANWB (the Dutch Automobile Club) have awarded the Camping Village Marina di Venezia with the recognition ADAC Superplatz 2018 and ANWB Top Erkende Camping 2018, for the high-quality facilities, and the constant improvement of the services.
But first, we are at Frankfurt Airport, which, through the years is becoming increasingly confusing. We take the bus to our plane, which is parked next to the Runway West. After takeoff, we fly directly south along the Rhine.
We cross Gross Gerau, Biebesheim at the Rhine and Gernsheim. Then we have a good view of the nuclear power plant Biblis, which was shut down in 2011.
After Worms, Mannheim, Ludwigshafen, and Germersheim we cross the western part of Lake Constance with the city of Konstanz.
The Alps are mostly covered with clouds, only a few snow-covered peaks occasionally look through the clouds. Next, we recognize Lake Iseo and shortly thereafter Lake Garda. Also the Adige Valley with the wine village Dolcè is easily recognizable. The Adige forms the border between Trentino and Veneto.
We fly between high cloud towers which indicate a high humidity and a high probability of thunderstorms.
After crossing Padua at the southern edge, we reach already the lagoon of Venice.
It is a fantastic view, the pattern of islands and canals. Then Venice appears on the water surface. Venice is completely surrounded by water. A multitude of canals run through the city. A large cruise ship harbor was built at the western outskirts. Since then, the tourists are almost getting too much for the locals.
The Canale Grande, the Markus Tower, the Church of San Giorgio Maggiore and the Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute can easily be recognized. Of course, the access road to Venice and the train station are also visible.
Besides that, we have a beautiful view of Murano, the island which is famous for its glassblowing art.
At the Marco Polo airport, the friendly and helpful Giada awaits us and brings us quickly and safely with the minibus to the Marina di Venezia. The blogger Annie, Today is and the Instagrammer Marc, MPSupertramp, who have already been picked up at the Treviso airport, are also present.
The drive leads through the fertile lowland on the edge of the lagoon in a westerly direction to Jesolo. From here, we head east again to Cavallino Treporti and Punta Sabbioni.
Once we arrived at the camp, Miki (Michele) Barone welcomes us. Miki is part of the management team, responsible for Events, Entertainment and Social Media.
