I am curious to see the Venus and Sun in line on Wed morning. Want to know if there is a place to watch sunrise from the city. I mean not going to Nandi Hills or similar.

Find a place where in you could see sunrise. You can watch it from anywhere, really. If you live in a high-rise building go to the rooftop. Even if you miss the sunrise it doesn't matter. You can see the event until 10:23AM.

It takes 6hours and 25minutes for the total transit of Venus across the Sun. Use eye protection to view it. It is the same protection you use for viewing any solar eclipse for viewing the Sun. Don't miss it, the next one is after 105 years on December 10, 2117.
