For our first trip to Venice I wanted the location in the heart of the city, away from the crowds. We get easy to find it, just 10 minutes from Santa Lucia train station like on website instruction. The staff is superb and is always...More
Cant really comment on this hotel becuase we tried to book it for our stay in Venice in early April but they failed to respond to our enquiries. We faxed, we emailed several times but no reply. We booked somewhere else instead although we did...More
My wife and I stayed here for four nights over the Easter holiday. Perhaps not the best time to visit Venice, given all the tourists and crowds, but the Locanda Sant'Agostin was a great place to stay. Away from the crowds, but close enough to...More
I picked this hotel on the basis of reviews on Trip Advisor and was not disappointed. We arrived late on Friday night and were greeted by the night porter who checked us in and looked after us (an extra pillow was available for my wife)....More
Our train pulled into Venice and we were just awestruck by the sight of the canals in action. We loaded our bags into a water taxi and pulled up to the side of the canal where our hotel was located in the San Polo section....More
The Rialto Bridge is the most famous sight along the Grand Canal in San Polo, smallest of Venice's six sestieri (districts) and by far the busiest neighbourhood. Morning Venetians arrive to peruse the markets for fish, fruit and vegetables, while shops display goods from cheese to wine to desserts. San Silvestro and Rialto Market vaporetto (water taxi) stops add to the steady stream of foot traffic. San
Polo is defined by churches including Basilica dei Frari, one of the most important churches sought by art lovers.

We found that if you buy a Alilaguna ticket from the airport, by the water jetty's for one way into Venice that is the best way. It costs 15 euros per person, per way. Take the Orange line, as they have 3 services... More
We found that if you buy a Alilaguna ticket from the airport, by the water jetty's for one way into Venice that is the best way. It costs 15 euros per person, per way. Take the Orange line, as they have 3 services, this one takes you to San Stae. It takes about 40 minutes.
Then buy yourself a 24/48hr ticket for the standard water taxi, as this gives you full access to the standard water taxi service. (You can also buy this at the airport).
Have a great time.
