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 …
... up the bags and go to the station. Just as we headed back we felt the rain start spitting, and it was lightly raining by the time we got there. Not long after we got in, it started chucking it down! Just as well we went up the mountain yesterday or today wouldn't have been fun! Our train was delayed 15mins so we had a slightly longer wait than planned. When we got on the train we had seats in our own little compartment. (Just like on ...
... dined together for lunch. My companions all chose a seafood risotto and I had tortellini bolognese. Amran so kindly shouted us all lunch.
The day continued with much of the same but I was surprised at how much fun I was having being surrounded by so many happy people all there with the same purpose. I enjoyed the mere fact that I was at a festival, at Carnevale of all places. In Venice. I could pinch myself. It was this event alone that ...
... Husband & wife, their 47 year old daughter and her daughter. They were lovely. Then it's 9.30, and there's a show in, best get in amongst it. This amazing guy Adam Medini, he does hand puppetry (not 'puppetry of the penis' or the likes, this is a family show), but in all seriousness, he does acrobatics, this most incredible balancing thing - he is RIPPED, no 6-pack, more like a 10-pack easily. He juggles, even out of his mouth, he is really entertaining. Mac zonks out ...
... crowds and lines that went on forever. We felt like we had already missed our flight. We made our way past the packed Delta area to US Air where there were only three people in line. The US Air crowd showed up after us. We were checked through, our bags made weight, and then we hit security at this small airport. Dave goes through first because he is our problem child. He sets off security every time, so we hold his belongings to be scanned until we get him ...

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.
