Veneto Comments

We found the supermarket was the best place to get food. Fresh rocket and parma ham was cheap. Ended up making picnic lunches. My favourite thing was just getting lost in the back streets and finding hidden local shops, galleries, and pizzerias. Venezia is magic.
referring to the hotel Al Gallo, 3 stars category: it's a pity the hotel would very nice, proper and well-located, nearby the railway station and in a delicious part of Venezia, it wouldn't be for the service: the welcome was quite horrible, and during the evening the same man argued about the wasted water having the shower!! then spending 100euros he should be politer and permit a second round of coffee in the morning, if one would like, isn't it?
Yes, yes -- you will get lost. But just enjoy yourself -- once you get lost, you'll see the best stuff. Really though, if you pick up a good map, it's not too difficult to navigate around. Do beware the mosquitos -- I got bit all over, about three weeks ago, and the bites were huge and scary looking. I still have red marks, although the swelling went away. The food prices are outrageous and the quality mediocre, and always ask how much something costs before ordering -- my husband ordered a beer, regular size, and it ended up costing eight Euro! Oh, and the "sarde en saor?" Skip it, unless you have an affinity for cold sardines. But you have to see Venezia at least once in your lifetime! It is breathtakingly beautiful and one-of-a-kind. Definitely go, no matter the mosquitos or food costs.
Most accomodations are not near the train station, but that's a bonus. Since Venezia is comprised of tons of little islands, if you want to stay in the heart of the city, then you would want to stay away from the train station anyway. The walk from the station to the first real bridge bringing you into Venice is great (you can't get lost, it is one winding road) but once you cross the bridge it can get confusing. Just be polite and ask a local for help (or point on a map) and you shoud have no problem. As touristy as it is, take a gondola. If you can find an open post in the middle of the day, go for it (most people try to do early morning or early evening) and because there wont be a long line, you may be able to negotiate the price. And of course, in the evening you must go to Piazza San Marco, one of the best piazzas in Italy to see the church, listen to live music, and have a good meal.
Venezia is the most beautiful place I've ever seen. I wanted to stay forever, and I was so sad when I had to leave. The best thing about Venice is that it is a walking city, so you can feel free to explore the entire area. Look at everything and take it all in.
Truly a magical place! I found Venezia to be like an artist's set of a stage. Everything so quaint and individual. Through the magical mazed streets, I will struggle to match this truly unique place!
