Venezia, the city with canals for streets, doesn't need much introduction. It is without a doubt one of the most-visited cities in the world. Famous for the artfulness of its buildings, museums, churches, and culture of a thousand years of domination of the Mediterranean as well as the beauty of its bridges, the canals and tiny alleys truly make a unique city. The youth hostel is on the island of Giudecca, which permits you to take in Venice in all its glory. It is well connected with the urban vaporetto (boat) lines and is an excellent departure point for trips into the city and into the lagoon, where you will discover intriguing sites and hidden corners.
