Travel Blogs from Venice
We took an 8 AM train to Venice which only took 1 hour 10 minutes. It was the most dramatic train ride because the train was a Milan - Venice train that only stopped for 2 minutes in Verona. We stood on one end of the platform hoping that the first class cars would be on that end, it turned out that they were on the other end so we started running …
... extremely cold he didn’t have the cute traditional outfit on, but we did see a few guys with striped jumpers but they looked more like where is wally. It was a 30 minute cruise and was really good to see Venice from that perspective and what they use as cars affectively. The canals even had blindcorner mirrors and had the rule of keeping left (even though Italy they drive on the right hand side of the road). We could see the marks on the walls of when there is flooding and all ...
... of cheese, an apple, and for the first time I’d found tortilla chips at the supermarket!), I was online for a while, writing, watching youtube videos, researching. Later, I decided to go out again and walk over to the Rialto Bridge and beyond. I’m still looking for something that will let me attach the duffle bag to the handle of my suitcase and I found the name of a shop online that has luggage accessories. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it—I ...
... the only way have people walking in both directions. The second thing I noticed was that all the hallway streets led to small plaza or bridge. The plazas were areas for the residents. there were small shops but the plazas were mostly to just hang out. As we kept walking I also realized that the major shopping area was mostly concentrated in a certain area. It wasn't spread out throughout Venice, if you want to buy something, you had to ...
... new that continually caught our attention. Only a few places in the world can you see old buildings often in shambles and desperate need for repair but with ground floors filled with fashion boutiques and chic restaurants and cafes. It is modern where you can hear expresso machines hissing and a cosmopolitan sound of different languages along the streets but medieval in it's atmosphere. It is a country where farmers ...

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.
