Prata di Pordenone
Our Seabourn cruise ended up in Venice and instead of spending another night in the city we decided to see how the locals live in the countryside. Our friend (and contributor to invited us to spend the night in her extra bedroom in the small town of Prata di Pordenone. It’s an hour train ride from Venice and costs only $7 each way. Just be sure to wait in the Biglietti ticket line and not the Viaggi e Turismo. The latter was really a travel agent that had just one slow person working who charges an extra 8% to book your ticket. Meanwhile, the Biglietti line was quick moving and had no extra fees. It seemed like a scam to me since none of the tourists knew about the official line until some nice man told everyone.



Jennifer’s husband Tim is in the U.S. Air Force and they have a base with 5,000 Americans a couple towns over. The town she lives in has few Americans and we had so much fun walking around, going to the farmers market, grocery store, gelataria and restaurants. Here’s a link to all of my Prata di Pordenone, Italy photos.
