Place to stay!!!

by RussoBH

Well, just bought my plane tickets and now finishing booking my Europe trip for May....any suggestions of places to stay or the best neighbourhood to stay on a budget?
Just a place that I can leave my stuff while I spend the day walking and touring......preferably close to the sights......while looking at the net I found these one.....does anyone know anything about it?

Thanks once again,

I used www.hostelworld.com and found it really helpful and reliable. You will find true reviews and ratings to make a better decision. Although, hostelworld charges 1.5 euro commission but for only first few reservations. There is another good portal www.hostelbookers.come, I have never used it for reservations but lot of VTers suggest this website as this does not charge any commission...

For training inside Italy www.trenitalia.com is the most logical choice. Point to point tickets are often cheaper and easier than Rail Passes.

For cheap flights I used www.skyscanner.net and found it quite useful...

Hi! This Christmas, I stayed at an Armenian college-for 20 Euros per night- If you want somewhere quirky and cheap this could be the answer.The Moorat-Raphael College is located in the Dorsodura sestiere, so not immediately next to the sights (ie San Marco)but a 3 minute walk to vaporetto station. Plenty of character -This building was originally built between 1690-1700 as the Palazzo Zenobio. In the 19th Century, the Palace was acquired by the Armenian Mekhitarist Fathers of Venice, where it has been used as a college for Armenian studies, an Armenian Cultural centre, exhibition and concert venue etc. The Ballroom is worth seeing!There is also a pleasant garden to chill out in.

I've also found out that there is a cheap 'pilgrims' restaurant near San Marco 13 Euros for a 3 course lunch - La Basillica - is located on the very narrow alleyway which runs at the side of the Doges Palace (The waterfront side)

http://www.italymag.co.uk/italy/veneto/venice-pilgrim-restaurant-opens.

I didn't see it on my most recent visit, apparently it is advertised by a cross on the door. Open lunch times only.

There are plenty of places that serve freshly baked slices of pizza for 2 Euros. I also found some restaurants selling whole pizzas from under 5 Euros. (Most commonly, they start at 6-7 Euros)Plenty of supermarkets dotted around the city too. The Rialto Market (and other street markets) also offer reasonable prices for fresh food. Around the Rialto Markets, you can find shops that will make up delicious cold meat and or cheese sandwiches.

Please feel free to contact me for more info.
Have A Great Trip!

Travel Tips for Venice

tourist traffic

by GrZA

Try to avoid the obvious, August. So hot. So many people. At times I would find myself navigating the narrow streets (incredible) with 5 to 7 other tourists behind, as I happened to have a map. Quite funny when you hit a dead end.
It gets to be ridiculous, so avoid high tourism season here if at all possible.

Accademia

by fishandchips

Like most big Italian cities, Venice has some fantastic art to be seen. One of the best places to do this is at the Accedemia which holds the definitive treasure house of Venetian painting.

It is considered one of Europe's great museums. Painting range through the years from the 13th to the 18th centuries and is the largest collection in the world of Venetian painters.

Famous names such as Lorenzo Veneziano, Tintoretto and Titian have works displayed here.

It costs €6.50 (in 2003) to get in and is open Tuesday to Sunday 8:15am-7:15pm and Monday 8:15am-2pm. You can walk from St Marks Square taking the street in the far left hand corner of the square with your back facing St Marks and eventually over the Accedemia bridge.

Gondolas.... Gondoliers...

by Krystynn

Well, the best time to ride the gondola is really sometime in the evening.... just before the sun sets.

Please imagine with me for a moment.....

You are now seated inside one of these huge gondolas as it glides effortlessly along the Grand Canal. You take a deep breath as you savor this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Then in the far horizon...you suddenly catch a glimpse of the sun sloowly disappearing.... and dusk sets in a moment later. Silence. Tranquility and peace soon enveloped the entire lagoon......

Gondolas and Traghettos!

by mindcrime

Because of the movies Gondolas are very typical in every tourist’s mind. These old fashioned boats are paint in black by law since 1562 because before that the rich people wanted (and could) make their gondolas more impressive so they put colors and expensive carpets. For some people they are tourist traps because you have to pay €80-€120 for only 40 minutes, depending the time of the day (during day time are cheaper). They supposed to be very romantic but the locals use them only once in their lifes, only the day they getting married! :) check pic 1 for one happy bride! The gondolier always standing at the back side of the gondola having the oar at his right side. Usually the oarsmen don’t stand when they oar so I wonder if the gondoliers are the only ones that they stand. Hopefully, the passengers are sitting down in comfortable pillows with nice colors (pic 3).

The Gondoliers don’t sing anymore but they give some basic info of what you see. At least the majority are still dressed in the traditional uniform which is a sweater with stripes, black trousers and a strawhat. If you pass at sunset under Ponte dei Sospiri don’t forget to kiss your beloved because the legend promises eternal love! :)

The main part of the gondola is made by oaks but several other woods are used for many parts of a gondola, about 280 different wood pieces! That’s why it takes about 3 months to be built! If you want to buy one have in hand about 15.000 dollars!

The rates for the ride are official so pay attention and make sure you/they understood what you are going to pay, how long the ride will last and where exactly they will take you. 6 people is the maximum number of people that can share a gondola (less romantic but less expensive too because you share the price with the others).

A funny cheaper alternative is to take a traghetto, which is a gondola style ferry, actually the gondola of the poor! Hehe There are seven points along the grand canal between the train station and San Marco. By traghettoo you can easily cross the other side of the canal for a small charge of 1 euro. Pic 2 shows one before reaching the stop. The locals do it standing up but I guess noone will blame you if you want to sit down. There are timetables and fares info in front of every stop. The stops are:
Fondamente S. Lucia (Railway Station) - Fondamenta San Simeon Piccolo;
Santa Sofia (Ca' D'Oro) - Pescaria ;
Campo del Traghetto - Calle Lanza (Salute Church);
San Samuele - Ca' Rezzonico;
Sant' Angelo - San Toma;
Riva del Carbon - Fondamente del Vin;
San Marcuola - Fondaco dei Turchi (Natural History Museum);

Gondola Repair

by nicolettart

There are few surving gondola workshops in Venice. The Squero di San Trovaso is one of them. It is not open to the public, but we passed it numerous times and saw gondolas being worked on outside all the time across the canal.
