A Taste of Italy in Taguig City

MAY 14, 2017 (Sunday) — My family and I went to Market Market in Taguig City to celebrate mother’s day for my mom. Of course, many family also get together for that day. We planned to have our dinner at Giligans and after that planned to went at Venice Grand Canal at Mckinley Hill, Taguig.

The Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill is a highly-regarded dining hotspot and home to an excellent chain of restaurants offering diners a taste of European and Mediterranean flavors amidst a charming setting. That why I was get excited because it’s my first time to go to the Grand Canal also I usually saw some posts at instagram  about it.

Note: When you arrived at the Mckinley Hill, you will not yet saw the Venice Mall. You need to walk along the street (around 5-10 mins.). But don’t worry, it’s worth it because of it’s amazing view to capture.

 

If you don’t know where it  is, I hope this will help you.

From the North:

Option 1. From EDSA, ride a bus southbound to Baclaran or Ayala or take an MRT and go down at Ayala and look for the jeepney terminal (under MRT station) and ride those that are bound for Market Market. Get down at the corner of Fifth Avenue and McKinley Road and look for jeepneys bound for FTI Gate 3. This will pass by McKinley Hill.

Option 2. From EDSA, ride a bus southbound to Baclaran or Ayala or take an MRT and go down at Ayala and look for the bus terminal of TheFort buses (at the gate of Forbes across Shell Station) bound for Fort Bonifacio. These are air-conditioned buses that go around Fort Bonifacio. Get down at the corner of Fifth Avenue and McKinley Road and look for jeepneys bound for FTI Gate 3. This will pass by McKinley Hill.

Option 3. From EDSA, ride a bus southbound to Baclaran or Ayala or take an MRT and go down at Guadalupe. There are jeepneys in Gaudalupe that are bound for AFP Housing and Fort Bonifacio. You can ride either of the two, both of those routes pass by McKinley Hill.

Option 4. From the C5 area, ride an FX or jeepney going to Kalayaan Avenue and go down at the intersection of Kalayaan and C5 (this is called “Buting”). There are jeepneys bound for Market Market from that corner. From Market Market, ride the jeepney that is bound for FTI/Gate 3, these jeepneys pass by McKinley Hill.

From the South:

Option 1. From EDSA, ride a bus northbound to Fairview or Monumento or take an MRT and go down at Ayala and look for the jeepney terminal (under MRT station) and ride those with signboard McKinley-Fort-Bonifacio-Gate 2 that are bound for Market Market. Get down at the corner of Fifth Avenue and McKinley Road and look for jeepneys bound for FTI Gate 3. This will pass by McKinley Hill.

Option 2. From EDSA, ride a bus northbound to Fairview or Monumento or take an MRT and go down at Ayala and look for the bus terminal of TheFort buses (at the gate of Forbes across Shell Station) bound for Fort Bonifacio. These are air-conditioned buses that go around Fort Bonifacio. Get down at the corner of Fifth Avenue and McKinley Road and look for jeepneys bound for FTI Gate 3. This will pass by McKinley Hill.

Option 3. From EDSA, ride a bus northbound to Fairview or Monumento or take an MRT and go down at Guadalupe. There are jeepneys in Gaudalupe that are bound for AFP Housing and Fort Bonifacio. You can ride either of the two, both of those routes pass by McKinley Hill.

Option 4. From EDSA, ride a bus northbound to Fairview or Monumento or take an MRT and go down at Magallanes. Walk towards the San Lorenzo Place Showroom at the corner of Pasong Tamo. Look for the bus/FX terminal which are bound for McKinley Hill.

If you are in the Makati area:

From Ayala MRT Station:
There are jeepneys in the Ayala terminal (under MRT station) that are bound for Market Market. There are also jeepneys plying the Ayala route going to Market Market. Get down at the corner of Fifth Avenue and McKinley Road and look for jeepneys bound for FTI Gate 3. This will pass by McKinley Hill.

From Pasong Tamo/Magallanes MRT Station:

Option 2: There are also jeepneys passing along Pasong Tamo/Mantrade/WalterMart (along Pasay Road) that are bound for FTI. Ride the one that goes to Gate 3. From Gate 3 or end of Pasong Tamo Extension, there are jeepneys bound for Guadalupe, passing by McKinley Hill.

From Guadalupe-EDSA Station:
There are jeepneys in Gaudalupe that are bound for AFP Housing and Fort Bonifacio. You can ride either of the two, both of those routes pass by McKinley Hill. Ask the driver to be dropped at McKinley Hill or One World Plaza.

If you are in the Taguig or Paranaque area, ride a jeepney going to Nichols in Taguig, ask to be dropped off the Gate 3 – where the jeepney terminal to The Fort is located. From Gate 3 , there are jeepneys bound for Guadalupe, passing by McKinley Hill.

For private vehicles: McKinley Hill is just along Lawton Road that connects South Super Highway (via FTI/Nichols/Villamor Airbase exit) and Bonifacio Global City. It is also accessible through C5 via the McKinley Hills gate past the exit of Market Market/The Fort in the southbound lane. The area can also be accessed through EDSA northbound using either a) Kalayaan Avenue b) McKinley Road going to Forbes by the Ayala corner or c) C5 flyover coming from Buendia. It is advisable to just approach via Lawton Road since this road is not too traffic heavy yet compare to C5.

Of course, you can ride a taxicab from any area around the metro and just mention “McKinley Hill” or “Venetial Mall” and the driver already knows where to go.
