    I never write reviews but would give this a -100 if possible. The room is disgusting from the ratty bedding to shower less bathrooms, and dirty ally out the window with load tenants. Tacky plastic flowers in the room, musty, roaches on the steps. Not anything like any of the pictures. Checked in at 1pm, room wasn't ready so we left our bags till 9 pm. Should have known something was wrong when two managers showed us our room then ran, RAN out of the hotel and were no where to be found after. There was a mysterious problem in our room so they "upgraded" us to a room that looked like a 50 year old best western, we promptly complained and were shown another room that looked exactly the same. I honestly don't even believe the hotel rooms on the website exist, they don't have the space here. This is fraud and a clear bait and switch. Had we been told when we checked in we could have done so much better for much less money.

Sleeping @ Mestre station

by ElViajeroIndio

Hi,

My train to Florence leaves @ 3 AM on a weekday and we are thinking of leaving our bags at the Train station and looking around Venice till around 11 or so. Will we be able to get to the train station late at night from Venice (island) or even stay there if needed? Thanks!

The last trains from Venezia Santa Lucia to Mestre are at 00.21 and 00.31, Mestre station is not very comfortable, but there will be a lot of other people waiting for trains.

Hi! You'll be able to leave your luggage at the train station, then reach Mestre by the night bus service or train-I think the last train is 23.37, but not sure what time the early morning trains start

The left luggage office at Saint Lucia is located on Platform 1 (just past the toilets).On entering the station, head forward to the platforms then Platform 1 is the furthest Right.
Open Daily
06.00- 23.50 hours
For each item of luggage it is 4 Euros for the first 5 hours
then, 6-12 hours........ 0.60 cents per hour
13 hours plus..... 0.20 cents per hour
I had to show ID-(my passport), which was photo-copied and handed back. I was given a ticket, to reclaim my case.

For Mestre the left luggage is open 07.00 - 23.00.
The station is open Daily from 05.30 to 01.00

Buses from Venice Piazzale Roma to Mestre are run by ACTV, www.actv.it who have an information kiosk between the square and the Grand Canal where you can get directions and buy tickets. I understand night line service N1 and N2 run every 20 minutes to Mestre.

Travel Tips for Venice

Dorsoduro area

by gaia606

It's a very nice and central area with many restautants, pizzerie, ice cream shops and a little supermarket.
Calle dei Cerchieri is quiet because it's not on the main tourist route but it's few minutes far from campo san Barnaba and Campo santa margherita, both very nice and lively.
You can reach both saint Mark and Rialto both by foot (15-20 minutes) or by vaporetti.
I think you will find this a comfortable and nice area.

Wander the Back Streets

by giampiero6

Wander the streets. Get away from the main path from the train station and Piazzale Roma to San Marco. Wander the back streets behind the Accademia. Visiting Venice at Christmas! No one was there. It was foggy cold quite and clear. It was sheer magic.

Molo

by grandmaR

The Molo is the side of San Marco Piazza that is on the Grand Canal. It is the traditional way to arrive in Venice. I took a picture from a boat (photo 5) which shows the view you would have if you were arriving the traditional way. I also have a photo (4) of the way it looks from above with the gondolas all lined up for the tourists.

There are two very photogenic columns on the Molo. One column is topped by the winged lion of San Marco AKA a griffin which is supposed to have a book between his paws (photo 2). In my picture which is a silhouette taken from the piazza, you can't see the book.

The other one looks like a man in a Roman toga with a big spear and a halo standing on an alligator or a crocodile (photo 1 and photo 3). I understand that this represents St. Theodore, who was Venice's first patron saint, and the crocodile is supposed to be a dragon.

But since the columns and statues were really raided from Oriental sites, they are kind of reverse anachronisms. That is, some Venetian brought back a column with a griffin on it, and they put it up and called it the Lion of San Marco. Another Venetian brought back an Egyptian column with a man who has killed a crocodile on top, and so they stuck a Roman emperor's head on it, added a halo and called it St. Theodore and the Dragon.

The BASILICA DI SAN MARCO Is Worth Exploring

by Krystynn

Many of the fine craftsmen who built the BASILICA DI SAN MARCO were from Constantinople (modern day Turkey).

Hence, it is not surprising to see the lavish use of gold mosaics in the decorations and rounded arches rather than the pointed arches that are typically associated with the Gothic period.

The mask

by shiran_d

The mask had many uses - to protect gamblers from giving away indiscrete looks, (especially to avoid their creditors), or it was used by "barnaboti" noblemen begging on street corners.

This is not the case in the modern day traditions.
