More about A Venice Fish

Self catering apartment

by Jawnuta about apartments

We used this website
http://www.holiday-rentals.co.uk/
to search for our accommodation. Since there were 4 of us, and we wanted to cook some seafood from Venice fish marked (if we failed to find reasonable seafood trattoria) we decided to rent an apartment for 3 nights.
I researched many possible websites to find a nice place to stay for reasonable price.
The cheapest room in decent B&B in Venice was E150/4 people therefore E150 was my cut off price.

I found several available apartments. Some were nicer than others (looking at the pictures). Some had better location than others (based on what we were planning to do during our stay). But generally this website has nice choice of places for every pocket and family size.

We made our booking and are crossing our fingers for GOOD TIME IN VENICE!!!!!

Rialto Market

by mydreamquest

I guess if you are a chef, checking out Venice's Fish market would be fascinating. To me, it was just a fish market. It was nice seeing the daily life of venizian's shopping for fish and vegetables for dinner.

Hostels in Venice

by nescient

Hi Everyone!

I will be travelling (backpacking) alone to Venice and am wondering whether there are any hostels that have communal rooms to meet other travellers. I don't speak any Italian and it would be nice to meet others who might be able to keep me company =) My plan is to be in Venice during the following week Sept 18 - 25.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated :)

You could try www.hostelbookers.com/hostels/italy/venice.
They seem to have a large selection of hostels available throughout Venice.

B&B Rota is near the Rialto bridge. I stayed there a couple of years ago. Breakfast included, small outdoor patio where you can hang out and meet other travelers. Very affordable.

politicat,

There have been some mixed reviews with B&B Rota, but I will keep this one in mind. The one I have been looking at recently is "A Venice Fish". It sounds like it's still in the process of renovations (since 2000), friendly, but no security lockers. I've looked on several different hostel sites, including hostelbookers, but there are very few reviews. Has anyone heard of this hostel?

Travel Tips for Venice

Masterly Veneziano architecture (2)

by Trekki

.
Renaissance style:
As for Gothic, Renaissance style arrived in Venezia quite late, end of 15th century. And as for Gothic, Venezia had its own interpretation of the style. The ornaments lighten up the strong symmetry without loosing the overall harmony. Pietro Lombardo was nominated architect of the republic in 1498, and he created what is known today as architettura lombardesca, his specific Renaissance, combining noble Greek, exalted Roman and bright Oriental style. His most famous building is chiesa Santa Maria dei Miracoli, a marvellous church in southern Canaregio (photo 1). These red-green round marble pieces in the façade duplicate often in other buildings (on San Michele and at the hospital’s southern entrance), so that I called it the Miracoli style. The main portal of L’Arsenale (photo 3), Ponte di Rialto and Palazzo Corner della Ca’Grande (photo 2; what is municipality today) is also belonging to this style, although the latter ones already to late Renaissance. .
Baroque style:
The most prominent architect for Baroque was Baldassare Longhena with having built chiesa Santa Maria della Salute. This style also arrived quite late (compared to other countries) and also had to be “postponed”, as the horrible pestilence of 1630 brought building to standstill. So what could be more logical to erect Santa Maria della Salute in honour to St. Mary for having ended this desaster. Other secular buildings of Baroque style are found along Canal Grande, such as Ca’Pesaro (photo 4) and Ca’Rezzonico (photo 4).

Neoclassicism style:
(as Classicism is referred to in Italy) Several buildings of this style are present in Venezia as well, for example chiesa San Stae and Palazzo Grassi (the one with the strange sculptures at the waterfront; a huge skull made of cans in May 2007) and also the original opera house La Fenice, dated 1792.

And finally, Andrea Palladio must be mentioned. He lived in 16th century and is most famous for his gorgeous palazzi along Canal di Brenta - see Sandy’s page about Stra for a tour along these.
In Venezia, Palladio realised only churches, as San Giorgio Maggiore and Il Redentore on La Giudecca.

Don't feed the Pigeons...

by mapakettle

Feeding the pigeons in Venice is against the law, and carries a fine of 517 euro.

The exception to this law would be within the area around St. Marks Square.

I personally feel this law is 'FOR THE BIRDS'.

Packing List

by sandysmith

Comfy walking shoes are essential. Touristic Venice can be explored by water-bus but for the back streets and side canals feet are best and by the time you walked up and over hundreds of bridges, your feet will be complaining. This bridge is one of my favourites and it took me a while to find it down a little side canal. This 'Bridge with no Parapet' is only one of two such types left in Venice - the other is the Ponte del Diavolo on Tochello.
