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.

... was the first day on the trip that I didn’t whack the **** out of my head at some point. Unfortunately, I passed the bad luck to Beth who basically slammed her head into the ceiling of our room when she climbed up onto her bed. It was her night to sleep in the top bunk and she basically stood up forgetting where she was and BAM her head hit the ceiling. She cried for a few but then was immediately asleep. ...
After a late night, we had three tours lined up to get a good glimpse of Venice. First we had a tour of the Doge Palace, then a 'walk around Venice' tour looking at a range of buildings including the large Venice Cathedral and finally a wonderful tour by boat of the Grand Canal and some of its sideshoots.
Well we reckon we did the tours with a few hundred others but our guide for the first two was the same person and did a great job, with a nice dry sense of humour thrown in ...
... around, produce being unloaded into restaurants and mobile stalls being walked into position for a day of hawking. The fruit market wasn't as exciting as anticipated. There were lots of pretty fruit and vegetable stalls. But I see the same produce in borough market every day now. The only things that were different were the piles of red rucola and pretty purple artichokes! Next to the fruit market is the pescaria - the fish market. Here since 1907 and full of ...
... They were still setting up the area with the fish so I didn't get to see that up close (saw it later from the waterbus as I went by).
After wandering in the area near the market, I caught the No. 1 waterbus at the Ca’ D’Oro stop, taking it along the Grand Canal and then out past St. Mark’s Square into St. Mark’s Canal. I’d decided to take it all the way over to Lido and take a look at the beach mentioned in my guide ...
... a perfect way to start our day at the very elegant Cafe Florian. Our waiter, despite the heat, was bedecked in a white tuxedo and our beverages were served, literally, on a silver platter. An hour later we met our landlord Roberto at Cafe Americano and were whisked off into the labyrinthine Venetian interior. Our apartment offered two portable air conditioning units for the price of 7 Euros. It was a no brainer. They ...
