Looking for suggestions for a day trip from Venice next month. Would prefer travel by train or coach, but rental car not out of the question. Padua, Vicenza or Verona are probably the most obvious choices, but I really don't know much about them. Burano is already a seperate day on the schedule.
My main interest is photo ops, but I'm the only photographer in our group of four.
Recommendations and suggestion for what to see there appreciated.
You can't go wrong going in the direction of any of the places your have mentioned. For me many of the photo ops would be landscapes along the way, especially this time of the year, and a rental car would give you so much more flexibility for photo stop-ops. Verona is beautiful, it is the most ambitious drive but offers the most scenic countryside. Have fun! Hope you are staying in Venice long enough to enjoy the luxury of taking a break from Venice!!
