TravelPod Member ReviewsAbbazia Deluxe Venice
If you're staying in Venice for more than 2 nights, it's better to get a more centrally located hotel but for one night and arriving/leaving by train, Abbazia Deluxe can't be beat. There are two Abbazia: the regular and the deluxe. These are the two closest hotels from the train station and if you don't know where they are, you may walk past them (like we did).
Like many Venice hotels, Abbazia Deluxe doesn't have elevator and the reception area is on the second floor. The Lady Giulia helped us carry some of our luggage. Despite being 10 in the morning, our room was ready and fortunately, it was on the second floor so we didn't have to drag our bags through more stairs. Our room had a canal view and it was beautiful, especially the next morning when people started their activities. Giulia gave us a map and told us the city had not changed since the last time we were there 10 years ago.
Upon check out, the gentleman working on reception was not as friendly as Giulia (he was not rude but rather kept to himself). We actually enjoyed the breakfast. They were prepared in the lobby but no chef on duty so the only eggs available were hard boiled egg which is actually our favorite type of egg.
Overall, it was a pleasant stay but we would try something closer to the center the next time we're in Venice.

Day 41 - MSC Fantasia Venice Italy
This morning we reluctantly got up early, checked out and put our luggage into hotel storage. We then caught a ferry to the main island of Venice. We found a cute restaurant to have breakfast at and then wandered the many narrow alleys lined with boutique shops and hotels. We went on a gondola tour down the small waterways of Venice. Our guide explained Venice is made up of 120 small islands connected by bridges. Due to ...
... lunchtime and after this we wandered around many speciality boutiques. By this time the queues were tool long to go into the Basilica, Campanile, Clock tower and Bell Tower. Again I may do some of those at the end of October. Looking forward to returning to Venice with Eraine. The next part of our trip starts tomorrow - heading for the Dolomites 10 Day trek. There may not be WiFi all the way so contact will be patchy. ...
... free beer and coffee because the waitress kept ignoring our requests for the bill (!) we jumped back on the boat and got off near Piazza San Marco where we stopped for lunch.
Venice is a great place to people watch, so many nationalities from all over the world mixing and taking pictures for each other. In fact, on several occasions we asked people to take a picture of us with a quaint little bridge behind us or a ...
... have thought I could have applied to Venice. Don't get me wrong, Venice is lovely, but it was nice to take 40 min out of the craziness of tourist crowds. Our gondolier, Marco, was great. He didn't sing (thank goodness, I heard opera on one gondola that would have completely undone me) and he told us about the buildings and Venice itself. We all loved it. We found Marco on a little canal away from the ...
... David's birthday so he was treated to a light dinner at one of the oldest and most famous coffee places on the piazza. There was an orchestral combo playing and you could sit outside or in. We chose in and sat in a lovely room that would have fit in during the 1890's. It was fun to enjoy the music, the food was delicious, and the ambiance abundant. There were 2 other coffee houses on the piazza that also had small orchestra combos playing so ...
