If you want to visit something different and not too far from Venice, a very good option is to drive one hour and explore the area of Lago di Santa Croce, Farra D'Alpago. All nature around you and very important: you breathe fresh air. You escape the bloody humidity of Venice.

In Col Indes you can admire the so-called "Casa del Libro" (“the Book House”), an actual house erected in 1990 by sculptor Livio de Marchi.
Completely built in wood, all parts of this house reproduce books: the walls mimic piles of closed books; the roof is like an open book laid on top of the walls, and the fences are gigantic pencils pointing upwards.

To go from Venice to Florence I did the following: First I took a train from Santa Lucia Station to Mestre Station. There I took the train to Florence Firenze Fredi station. It was a regional train, with some stops in between. Finally, from Firenze Fredi I took the last train to SMN (Santa Maria Novella station).
